the answer could be 3 fold ,either your new battery is faulty,or your alternator is faulty ,,or the logical problem could be an earth fault ,clean down all earth points properly ,if that doesnt cure your fault ,you may have a wiring fault, could be a open circuit I.E broken wire inside harness.

Have the charging system checked. The light comes on when there is a charging system problem. it may be a battery, alternator or a battery problem.

YesFirst if the starter is bad the car will not start, if it will not start it can not charge the battery.If the starter will not work it can mean there is an electrical problem that will also prevent the alternator from charging the batteryThe starter itself CAN NOT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS!The extra load on the battery can ruin the battery and that can ruin the alternator. But before that NO.

Charging system problem. Normally this means there is a problem with the alternator.

Obviously check the battery. Anyway, if the alternator, battery, and wires connecting them are good the voltage regulator is next on the list.
