I was driving my truck when the battery light popped on and it just cut off. I bought a new batter, still light is on and it won't start, it does turn over though. I was told it was my timing chain.

A battery light means there is an issue with the charging system, namely the alternator. Check the alternator and or starter and all wires to and from for cuts, breaks, corrosion.
