Battery light still on after replacing alternator in 2001 pt cruiser


Well the battery light means the battery is not being charged, but it could be a fuseable link or computer problem. Could even be a problem with the ignition switch.
You need to know if the alt is getting a signal and has batt voltage.

The Alternator is controlled by the voltage regulator, type is located inside the Powertrain control module, you guessed it the alternator is computer controlled. You will need the dealer to look into this before you waste anymore money on parts.
