If it's a 1999-2006 it's probably the gauge cluster itself

The battery light came on in my 2000 Silverado. I checked the battery and it was fine. And I cleaned the battery cable connections. I installed a new alternator and it was still on. Also the volt meter was showing less than 10 volts. So, I charged the battery fully and took the new (rebuilt) alternator back to the auto parts store and had them check it-it was bad right out of the box! I bought a brand new one (not rebuilt) and that fixed the problem.

I have a 2001 Blazer 4.3 liter. . I had my altenator go bad .. I replaced it with a Napa brand new Altenator.. Once installed the battery light began to flash. . I changer out the Altenator and battery once again using Napa brand products. . Same issue. . Battery light flashing.. After researching the issue and finding no answer I dove right in and found the problem. . It was the Altenator. . For some reason the Altenators dont send the proper 5v back to the PCM.. I changed it out for the third time using a BOSH Atenator.. And like that all better..
