Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue
The battery light coming on means the charging system cannot manage the demand on the system - i.e weak battery, defective alternator, bad regulator...
Changing parts doesn't necessarily mean the replacements are working. Measure the voltage on the battery with the car running, you should see 13.7 to 15.1 volts. Turn on the headlamps, rear defogger, etc (put the system under load), you should stay in the same range.
Assuming all of your electrical connections are good, the symptoms point to the alternator/regulator - these are integrated into one unit.

This is my second oldsmobile i have owned. Now there is two positive connections right above where the battery is make sure they are free of rust and they are tight be careful not to over tighten nuts. Oldsmobile's are terrible for those external positive posts.
