Battery light means you have an issue with the charging system. Maybe the new alt is bad, get it checked, and or the wiring. Battery draining is a parasitic draw on the electrical system. Check u-tube, there are couple videos showing you how to find the problem.


Battery draining issues can be cd player stuck, sunroof not closed all the way or anti-theft system. One way to check is to pull fuse of a suspected system and see if that takes care of problem.
