The battery is really just for providing power when the vehicle isn't running, and providing power needed for the starter to start the engine. The rest of the time the alternator is charging the battery and providing the power for the vehicle. You may have a short somewhere that is draining the battery when the vehicle is sitting and not running. If the vehicle does not run long after charging the battery, then there's a problem with the alternator. You can actually run the car without the battery, provided the engine is running and the alternator is working properly.

My 1996 Nissan Maxima's Alternator


Just because they're new doesn't mean that they work. I would find an auto parts store that does free electrical system checks before spending a dime elsewhere. I've gone through 4 batteries in 3 years because of bad products. And have most recently had to replace a brand new alternator because it, too, was defective.

Battery light indicates alternator failure. If you have a voltmeter, check voltage at battery with engine running. Should be at least 14 volts. If no voltmeter, remove alternator and take it to parts store for testing.
If the alternator is bad and that is your only problem, the truck should jump start, but it will not go far unless the battery is charged. OK?

First step is to check the voltage of the charging system. Should be around 12 volts when engine not running , 14 volts when engine is running.
If these test out OK then your warning light is the problem. Could also be a poor connection or broken wire at the alternator. Alternator must be grounded to work , but if it wasn't , the light would probably not come on.
