Definately your alternator, it's really a "charge indicator light" not a battery light.

sounds like it could be either a short somewhere in your electrical system drawing off power (due to a nick in a wire somewhere) or else your alternator. you can take your altenator to parts shops and they can test it for you...i think even sear's automotive department can do it for you.

First guess would definately be alternator. Parts store should check that for free.

yep, probably alternatoryou mentioned replacing all grounds right ? recheck that you didnt conect the pos + to ground by accident, if you did this could make A LOT of problemsif you know how to use a volt meter check individual connections

Have the battery load tested. If bad replace.Start the engine and check alternator charge for13.5 to 15.5 volts if correct OK. If not you need to replace the alternator.After those items are corrected,check for low amperage leak to ground by removing the negative battery cable and connecting either a test light orAMPmeter between the battery - and the- post.If you read 2 to 5 amps something is shorting out.

if you jumped the car first you may want to check the engine compartment fuse panel behind battery there is an alt fuse that may have gotten wiped out by jumping the car
