Battery Light just won't stop going on
i'm curious if anyone has had this problem. I have a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport. The battery light starts out off when started up and sitting in idle, but as soon as I rev up the RPM's, 30 seconds later the light goes on again. I can turn the Jeep off and then on again and the light stays off at idle, but then goes on again 30 seconds later when I rev it up. I thought it might be the alternator, so I replaced that...and it wasn't. The battery was fairly old, so I replaced that as well. I still have the problem, and since it is my only means of transportation, was hoping this forum could lend me a hand.

In the future, you can save yourself some trouble by having the alternator tested at the local auto parts store before buying a new one you may or may not need. Did you figure out what the real issue was?
