Default 1990 Honda Accord LX?

I have a 1990 honda accord lx and recently my battery light has come on. I got a brand new alternator and a brand new battery in it now, but the light still comes on. The last time I was driving it the light would come on whenever I reached 45. As soon as I went below 45 it would turn off. Then while sitting at a red light the light came back on and stayed on. We have checked the belts, battery and alternator and everything seems fine. So what would still be draining my battery?

Blown No. 2 fuse in dash fuse panel or defective bulb.

Open in black/yellow wire between warning lamp and fuse panel, or between fuse panel and ignition switch.

Open in white/blue wire between alternator and warning lamp.

Poor ground connections.

Could be a lot more complicated than that. Just confirm the alternator is at proper output, the battery isnt low... If youre not having any problems starting you may not have a draw at all, simply a problem with the indicator.
