There is a problem with the charging system, broken wire, blown fuse, or a bad alternator. Need to see if the alternator is charging while the engine is running, you can have this checked at any auto parts store.

Thank you I've had the alternator checked and it is charging the battery I did that at O'Reilly's and AutoZone but at least gives me somewhere to check now because I wasn't sure what else to look for.


If the alternator is charging on the vehicle, then there could be a problem somewhere with a wire to make the light come on, but the battery light also could indicate a bad battery, a short in the battery so it is not taking a charge. Have the battery tested separately at a auto parts store. I have seen new batteries develop a internal short.

I will take out to get tested thank you


I don't think you need to take the battery out to have tested. Just take the vehicle somewhere so they can check the CCA of the battery.
