Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I start up, the battery light displays on the dash and the gage reads low. After 5min. the gage rises to normal and the battery light goes off. It starts right up every time, but this always occurs. I put in a new battery recently, and changed the alternator 3 mos. ago but the problem remains. What could the problem be? Thank you.

You don't even say what car, much less year or anything. It's a bit difficult to help you without that.
