Alternator / battery problem...
I have a '95 Ranger w/ 2.3l. My battery light came on last night, then my battery ran out of juice. I took out the alternator and had it checked...sure enough it was fried. Not too bad for an alternator with 298000 original miles on it. I replaced the alternator and then had the battery fully re-charged. I put everything back together, it started right up, and the charge gauge went back to normal. However, and here's my question, the battery light will not go out. Is this advising me that there's another problem, or that I didn't actually fix the original problem at all? I'm limited in my mechanical knowledge, so I need some help trying to figure this out.
