Rookie question here - New battery just installed and battery warning light still illuminated. Are the intelligence there to tell me that the Alternator is bad or could this be a wiring issue?

Try and gives some engine revs. If the light goes off then it might be your idle setting (too low) mine dies that sometimes. Give it a rev and light goes off.

Thanks, Jeff! I know what you are saying, I had that happen quite often before changing the battery. I just returned from driving and it stayed illuminated the whole time.

Check all wiring connections to the alternator and engine ground. If you have the type with the voltage regulator/brush pack that screws on the back, pull it off and make sure the brushes are not stuck.
