eek battery light/alternator 2000 Expedition

I had a battery light come on. Obviously a dead battery. After I installed a new battery everything worked normal except the battery light is still on. While the engine was running I disconnected the negative cable and the engine died. Is my alternator dead or is there a blowm fuse, possablly some other trouble? I always heard that the alt should keep the engine running while the bat is disconnected but these electronics get me going. Any help/info is greatly appretiated.

Re: battery light/alternator 2000 Expedition

Most batteries don't come fully-charged when you buy them. This maybe the situation, which should mend itself as soon as the battery gets charged from driving, or from manual charging. How long has the light been on since you installed it? My wife's "tire-pressure" light came on; I found a rock had punctured the tire. After having it booted, the light stayed on quite a concerned me, but finally went off before I pulled into the house! Good thing!
