I put in a new alternator a new voltage regulator and a new battery and new ends on the wiers the light is still lit HELP
If you have a volt meter, set it to volts and hold the negative probe to the alternator body and the positive to the battery positive. If you don't get battery voltage then the alternator isn't grounded and the probable cause is the main engine ground cable either breaking or coming loose.
Very best regards
