Because the battery was replaced (disconnected and re connected), the computer needs resetting.

Have you had the battery cables and starter tested ?

I installed new battery and new altanator and system is not charging...trucks runs for bout 30 min then dies....please help

Not sure what type of alternator, but you can put a small metallic object against the casing and if it is magnetized while running then the alternator is charging. Double check your wiring especially the plugs for the alternator and clean the posts for the battery

2003 Buick Lesabre Battery is good and Altnator is good but is not charging the battery, I have no idea what it could be??

Chances are its the wire between the alternator and the battery, or the circuit that goes to the warning light on the dash. The warning light powers the volt regulator in the alternator which "turns on" the alternator.
The wire between the alternator and the battery is designed to burn and cut the connection much like a fuse.
You may have to get a shop manual or repair book to get the wiring diagram needed to troubleshoot the circuits.

Vince here with the light problem

Ok you may have a bad charging system, a bad alternator. Here is my suggestion have your charging system checked. You can take this vehicle to an Auto-Zone and they will check for FREE the complete system. They will load test the battery and the alternator and perform a starter draw test. I believe that your alternator is NOT charging good enough. Good Luck

Altanator not charging

Alternators require a + feed from the battery before they start charging. Make sure 12v is reaching it from the switched live supply.
