First check wired connections, and terminals to alternator and battery. If connections appear to be good with nothing feeling loose, and terminals appear to be clean of corrosion. I than suggest you to take your truck to your local Advanced Auto Parts. Ex. Auto Zone or O'Reilly's, and they will perform a free alternator/battery load test. Which will determine whether it is a bad alternator or battery. These are the only major components of the charging system.

Have you alternator checked out at Autozone, or similar. You could also check the fuse for the alternator.

Chrysler battery charge light on

check the charging system and battery to make sure these are working properly. if the charging system is not working then the alternator will have to be check and possibly the PCM as the PCM controls charging voltage and the alternator continuously tries to run a max. check for a code in the PCM related to charging. this may help finding the problem.

The battery warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. And the check engine light is probably for the same issue.
Have you had the charging system checked ?

My battery light won't go off in my car and my reverse lights don't work. what could it be?

the battery light would most likely indicate a charging system fault. it could be just a faulty ground in the instrument cluster. have the charging system checked.

the reverse lights are controlled by a switch that engages when the shift lever is moved to the reverse position. this could either be stuck in the on position or be grounded.

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.
