2.5L Battery Light

Hello everyone,

Looking for some help here. I just bought this 1998 Ranger, and the battery light is on. The previous owner told me that it had been on for awhile she had the alternator tested and it was fine.

I put a new battery in it 3 days ago, and had the alternator tested again at Advance. All tests were good.

Battery measured 12.57 volts
Alternator measured 14.57 volts / 12.9 amps with no load and 14.52 volts / 11.4 amps with load.

The light will flicker when I rev the engine and while driving, but is on constantly at idle.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
