Double check all of your connections to make sure there is no loose wire, connector, or battery cable clamp. If the alternator was tested on the vehicle,,, I would take it off and have it tested on an actual bench tester. Usually when the light comes on, indicates that the engine is running on battery power only, The alternators job is to keep the battery charged at all times. And the computer needs a FULL 12 volts to operate the engine properly.

The battery cables can be at fault. Check your connections at the battery, and the alternator. I've had recent cases of the cables being corroded inside the insulation, so you cant really see it from just looking at it. I run my fingers along the cables, squeezing enough to feel any significant diameter change. The light coming on says the battery is not being charged. Best of luck to you!

Well depending on how you checked them could matter. If you just checked to see if the wires were on good, than you need to do more, take a multi-meter and check if your altenator is putting out the correct voltage and amperage, then check the battery and do the same. Both are reading correctly then check your grounds

How to know if altanater is bad


You can do a very simple test to see if the alternator is working or not. All you do is start the car, while the car is running, remove the negative battery cable. If the car continues to run, the alternator is still working. If the car dies, the alternator is not working anymore. Another thing you can do is take a volt meter to the positive and negative posts of the battery. While it's running put the voltmeter probes on the pos. and neg. posts of the battery and the voltage should read 14.5 volts at idle. If it's around 12.0v, then the alternator isn't putting out power anymore to charge thet battery.

With the engine running are you getting any voltage off the alternator? check with a multimeter. Check voltage at battery while running should be 13 volts or more.

My 95 dodge neon batter wont jkeep a charge


Check the accessory belt tension. The belt should move 1/4 to 1/2 inch when you push on it. The alternator belt is closer to the firewall on a 96 neon. Also for a temporary fix until you figure out the problem get a solar charger that plugs into your cigarette lighter. Other possible causes; bad battery cables or connections. Check all connections are clean and tight (check both ends at the battery and at the starter and ground wire. Caution always remove negative battery first and replace last.
