That battery light means that the alternator is not working properly, you can take it to a shop to get an avr test which will tell you forsure.Or replace the alternator. I would do something soon, the atlernator will wreck your battery & leave you stranded on the side of the road. Good luck

I have a 1999 gmc sierra 1500 my amp gauge is going from 16 to 9 then I start loosing all power to my interior and no head lights or anything engine still runs fine can happen for a few miles then eve


You may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams and test procedures.
The alternator output should be around 14 volts unless you have a heavy load such as headlights or the heater blower on high.
If voltage goes above 14 the regulator could be faulty even tho you say the alternator checked out ok on a bench test.
The regulator gets a power signal from the gauge on the dash to energize it. There could be a loose connection somewhere in the charging system, or something in the instrument cluster. Even the key switch could be a factor.

Ammeter reads 18V with engine running.


I'm assuming you mean the charging voltage indicator. This is an indication of an incorrect charging voltage (too high, should be from 12.5 to 14 volts). This problem is most likely caused by a bad charging voltage regulator. There are two variations of the location of the regulator: 1) regulator is outside of the alternator and located on right side of the engine compartment on the wheel-well, below the starter relay or 2) The regulator is inside the alternator (in which case you'd have to replace the alternator).
