check the drive belt for condition and tension as you drove on the battery only because the alternator was not working . The battery you replace was a good battery just needed charging. Putting the car in gear lowers the rpm's below that necessary to spin the alternator fast enough to keep the light off . When the alternator is needed the drive belt of some other failure in the alternator comes into play . have it checked out at an accredited auto electrician

Headlights cutting out on my ford thunderbird


Your alternator may be on its way out. The alternator keeps the battery charged while driving and if the battery looses charge extra lights on the vehicle are usually the first to go.
A rarer possibility is that there is a wire that is rotted. I would get your alternator tested first.
