Have the alternator checked for the internal regulator,if it works the way you say the alternator is defective,i have a 99 GT that had a similar problem and at the end the relay unit was the problem,just have the alternator check for the out put first.

First, the battery replacement indicates you have a short. Either something draining the battery, or a bad alternator. This explains the light problem too. Get the alternator and battery tested at a auto-parts store. All the rest will fall in place.

The alernator does not appear to be charging the battery,the car has not been used for three weeks,battery has been charged but battery light stays on,can this problem be fixed easily?

It sound's like the battery need's to be replaced, the alternator can't be checked without the car started, to check the alternator measure the voltage across the battery, it should read higher than the battery voltage. if the voltage on the battery stay's at 12 volt's with the car started the alternator is bad.

Battery Light

You probably need a new alternator and battery. If you have a DMM (Digital Multi Meter) Check the Charging system voltage at idle, it should be around 13.2 volts or above for a properly working Alternator. The battery voltage with the car off should be at 12.6 volts for a good battery. Check and replace as neccessary.

Fuses for 2002 mustang gt

There is no fuse for the alternator. If the alternator is working properly, it should charge the battery. Have you had the alternator tested? That is where I would start. Remember, just because it is new, doesn't mean it can't be broken.
