2001 Mazda Tribute: My battery light keeps comming on..altenator

Customer Question

Hi, I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute. My battery light keeps comming on. I have had the altenator and battery replaced. It originally made my car stop running, then after waiting about 15 min the car would restart and and go about 1-1/2 miles. And over and over again. After the altenator was replaced, now when I go into passing gear the battery light comes on and my gauges all go stupid, but once I am out of passing gear, the light goes off. I am 200 miles away from a Mazda dealer....and I am at my wits you have any suggestions?
