2001 Chevy Impala the battery light on the dash keeps coming on when started.?

I had the battery checked they said it was good. Put it back in and now i have no dome light or anything. whats up?? Is there some sort of sequence of things I need to do? Is it the security thing not letting power go to the rest of the car?

If anyone has a clue PLEASE let me know
thank you

Check the battery terminal connections. If there is alot of white powdery residue on the ends of the cables, it could be causing a bad connection. Also the battery light being on could mean you need an alternater. Clean the cables and see what happens first.

ALTERNATOR is more than likely bad.

Get that checked out.

same problem

My battery light would come on while I'm driving and I would lose power for a second or so, then start up again but it caused my engine to stutter. I had the battery checked, alternator checked. The battery was going bad so I replaced it, but it did it to me today on my way home. Cables are tight.

Any ideas?
