Have the part store where you bought the alternator check it out. If it was a remanufactured one, you have a 50% chance of it working out of the box.

The alternator is reading good and so is the battery. I had both of them checked once the battery light came on. The problem is the battery light is still on and it seems like everyone I asked has no clue why.
