Default Battery light woes

My battery light came on on startup yesterday. I checked the battery and it is okay.

No charge at the battery so I replaced the alternator. Still no charge.

Is there a fuse some place that could be the issue?

Does your truck have a battery gauge?
And when you replaced your alternator was there a gray clip with a single cable in it?
On my 97 my battery light came on but the truck continued to start and run fine so I didn't pay much attention to it. Then my stereo killed my alternator. When I replaced the alternator I found that the little gray cable was broken off from the clip, so i soldiered it back together and my battery light went out.

I went around and around with this issue and finally resoved it.

The positive cable loom had rubbed on the inner fender to the point of all but cutting the red wire in it on the inner fender.

I patched that up problem resolved.
