Alternator/Battery

I have a 2003 Honda Civic 1.7L

My battery light came on a couple days ago, had it tested at Honda and said that it was the altenator. Replaced that and also the battery as it was dead when tried to start the car today.

So, the battery light is coming back on, mainly solid but will go out and flicker and then remain solid. The DRL lights is also coming on and off, will go out when the headlights are turned on.

Does anyone know what this could possibly be? Wiring?

Thanks!

Take it back to them. They definitely installed it wrong.
