DID YOU MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A GOOD ENGINE GROUND,TRY JUMPING A WIRE FROM BATTERY GROUND TO ALTERNATOR CASE WHILE RUNNING,SEE IF IT STARTS CHARGING,YOU SHOULD HEAR IT ENGAGE not saying that this is your problem, but don't rule out the possibility of the new alternator being bad as well. just because its new doesn't always mean that it works. i have had new parts be bad parts before. its a royal pain but if you have exhausted all other leads its simple enough to test that new alternator.
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt. If the battery and alt test ok than check the connections to the alternator and battery. You may also have a battery drain (something that is staying on and killing the battery)
its the baterry
If you know the battery and connections at the battery are good then it is more than likely a defective starter.
I changed your battery?? I don't think so. I think your alternator is your problem!
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt. A replacement alternator can be bad. If it is ok than most likely a poor connection to the alternator.
Disconnect the battery. Unplug the alternator and take the belts off. Unbolt the alternator, and bolt the new one in. Put the belts back on it. Plug it back in and reconnect the battery. Voila! You changed your own alternator!

voltage regulator, sometimes its in the alternators, advance auto parts doesn't replace them in remanufactored ones.
?ignition control module/pickup
check for loose connections
Check for blown fuse(s) or blown fusible link(s).
If the battery and alternator are both good, Test them to be sure, then you need to take a multimeter and verify that the power from the alternator is actually reaching the battery. It could be a simple wiring problem
The alternator is probably over-charging the battery. Replace the alternator if the voltage at the battery terminals is over 15V when the engine is running.
Check to see if the alternator is working Connect a voltmeter to battery: Without engine running reading should be about 12.8 With engine running reading should be 13.8-14.2 If not bad alternator
Have you checked the alternator?
Did you disconnect the battery before replaceing the altenator? If you didnt and you made a spark you blew a fuse. If thats not the case double check your connections to the batery and the altenator.
Either the battery is dead or your battery terminals are not hooked up right or loose, or you have a bad alternator, that needs tested
Your alternator is not charging the battery like it's suppossed to or the battery cables might be corroded and may need to be changed or cleaned, but the good news is autozone can recharge your new battery back up for free. Also make sure after you change the alternator and clean the battery cables and put the battery back in have the guy at auto zone test the new alternator before you buy it to make sure it works properly.
In the engine bay, check and clean as necessary all the earth/ground connections between the engine and the body and the battery and the body.You usually dont need to change whole alternator, just regulator.Type depends on the model of your skodahttp://www.nd-skoda-volkswagen.cz/images_zbozi/1288_1.jpg
Disconnect the cable from the alternator and see if that stops the draw. If it does, the alternator may be defective. Otherwise there may be something else drawing current.
The alternator on a 1995 Volvo 960 is changed by disconnecting the negative battery post, removing the alternator wiring harness, loosening the retaining bolts, and taking the belt off. The alternator can then be completely unbolted and a new alternator put in its place.
Your battery is not charging. It is either due to a faulty battery or a faulty alternator. Get it changed.
Most likely, your starter isn't the problem. You may have a bad alternator. Usually when your battery doesn't recharge properly it's an issue with the alternator. Have a mechanic inspect the alternator if you're not comfortable doing it yourself. If it is an issue with the alternator, it's a pretty cheap fix.
You wired it up wrong, or the new starter was defective.
