With a full charged battery the voltage my not be low enough for the check gage lite to come on.

Anytime you want a real answer you should post the cars info. There is a big difference between the gages pre body control module and post.

Swapped engine from junk yard, got it running but forgot to plug in old alternator, which is fairly new had no gage light, so plug in alt and its not charging and doesn't sound great etheir maybe bad ground or alt is junk all of a sudden
