IF your battery light is on, your alternator is not charging your battery properly. Did you just put in a new remanufactured one? What is the voltage at the battery with the car running?

disconnect your radio and see if that still drains it.

When you replaced the alternator did you also replace the large 3 way connector that plugs into the alternator? You should have. They're notorious for failure. HTH. -Jim
