Could it be the battery?

1 Answer

ok, Battery was very low, we bought new battery....Light still came on. We have cleaned ALL connections including the grounding strap. Car starts and runs great! Wipers are now running as they should, lights are bright, but battery light will come on on dash still. Verified and the wire on the alternator is secured to "BAT" connection....What gives???? UGH!!!!!
