Help me out guys

Well a week ago I went into my car and tried to start it and it didn't crank. So I noticed the connectors for my alternator was burnt out (how I didn't notice I have no clue) but turns out I needed a new alternator bought one and then the car cranked. But no start so then I ended up needing a new battery also. With my luck. Then after all that it started up no problem. On the highway I noticed a battery sign on my dash. And I have no idea what it could be now. Anyone ever had this issue or has a clue. If your lost on the story just let me know ill clarify. Tried to make it as short as possible lol.

Check the wiring on the alternator and make sure they are all good and tight if so check the wireis them selves to make sure the ends are sill getting a good connection

The red battery light on the dash means your alternator isn't charging your battery I would check the grounds the ground that goes on your battery could be bad

And maybe take a wire brush and take it to all the ends of the wires and to the frame where the ground connects at

+1 to grounds. Also check the battery clamps themselves. I had my 85 F150 stump me all summer one year and replaced every electrical component until someone told me to just replace the clamps and man was i pissed. $7 worth if clamps as compared to $400 in everything else.
