If you mean by "pop" the starter, you tap on it with a hammer and it cranks, then the starter will need to be replaced. Common issue

Red light came on looks like a battery in my 1993 topaz replaced alternator and bought. new battery. light still on?

It sounds like you have a bad connection in your starting system. Or any loose cables that you may have I would check all cables make sure their connected maybe altanater cables

Haveing trouble with something draining the battery , have put 4 new batterys in also replaced starter & altanater & belt . thankyou .

Check for brake light switch staying on. Also reading light switches get stuck on. Does your electronic leveling system remain on when the key is turned off? Can you hear the heater blower running when the key is off after the door is opened? The last one may be the blower control module keeping the blower on. It's located under the dash on top of the blower box.

Remove the battery and attempt to charge it, then have the parts store perform a free battery test. You likely just need to replace the battery and the pop was an indicator that a dead short in the battery is draining off the electricity that would otherwise be stored in the battery. If you don't know the age of the battery that means it's probably not new and typically 3 years (or more if a very expensive battery with duration of up to five years is selected) is the typical life of a car battery.
