If you have a voltmeter check battery voltage with the engine running. Should be around 14.7. If it's only around 12 volts chances are the alternator is bad and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: battery light comes on and

Hi. If this light comes on when your alternator is not making electricity and the car is running off of battery power alone. you'll either need to replace your alternator belt or the alternator, but before you do this, go ahead and check your battery connections. Sometimes cleaning the connections will fix a charging problem.

check the condition and tension of the drive belt. You say there is nothing wrong with the charging system yet the battery light comes on which indicates that there is something wrong. Check for loose battery terminals . Have the alternator checked for a failed diode in the rectifier.

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.

possibly wrong termination of wires @ alternator.

to drop off a battery cable is one old and reliable way to check charging system. if belts are tight and wiring is correct it is time to put a meter to alt and verify output voltage is within acceptable ranges.....

Battery light on, battery ok

How long has the light been on? Although the battery is ok, it most likely means it is not charging. Take the suburban to a parts store for a free check of the system. They should be able to determine if the alternator not charging.

Check your alternator as it sounds like it may be starting to go. The battery light trips when it detects an issue with the charging system. Very rarely, the battery light can trip if there's an issue with the PCM, but this is very rare.

Take a voltmeter with the car off and measure the voltage on the leads of the batter, should be around 12V+-.2. With the car running, measure again and this time it should read 13V-14V. If it does read 13V-14V then it means that the alternator is working. If it is below 12V, then it means your alternator is not charging the battery properly. If it's above 14V, then it means your alternator is overcharging and damaging the battery.
