The battery light goes 2 ways, one is showing the battery taking a charge because the battery was drained, and 2, the battery is not taking a charge and will be dead in 20 mins. I should say the charge light. So, now that you have replaced the battery and the alternator, I would assume there is something else wrong. Your battery might be charging up. Your new battery might be dead.
Check out all the fuses, you will probably find one blown that has nothing to do with it but it causes the light to come on. I went nuts once(?) when my brake light on the dash came on, I had brakes, but couldn't find anything wrong, I checked everything, went as far as making an app with a mechanic to check out my brakes, on my way to the shop, a guy pulls up along side of me and says my brake lights are out. Duh, popped in the fuse and went back home. So, check it out. Hope this helps.

Check engine and battery lights are on after i changed both(battery and alternater) ...the car would run but the battery will be drained what's wrong wit my 96 eclipse


If you used a new or rebuild alternator, I'd suspect that the harness from the alternator to the battery is open circuit. It happens with age and corrosion. Measure the alternator terminal voltage, engine running. Should be about 13.7v. Same voltage should appear on the battery + terminal. If not, make up a heavy duty temp cable and run it from the alt to the battery.

Battery light on ... what does this mean


The battery light indicates a battery charging problem. If the battery light comes on and stays on while you are driving, the most common cause is a broken alternator belt. Total failure of the alternator is another possibility.
