83 Corolla Charge/Brake light on

We just replaced the battery and alternator and the charge light is still on. Any suggestions? There is no modern computer on this beater with a heater.

Check your alternator/ battery cables are tight and good! Check for corrosion. If those are good, check any relays. Someone else can chime in if they know something else. It also could be a bad DIODE pack on the alternator. If still nothing, it's probably just a bad cluster panel.

Need to meter it while running to see what kind of voltage it's putting out; should be somewhere in the neighborhood of 13-14 volts.
