Exclamation battery light wont go out!!!

ok guys so im hoping for a little help here, ive had the car for about a year now and as of about a month and a half ago the battery light comes on and stays on. the alt is charging at anywhere between 13.3-14.4 and has been replaced twice to see if it was the problem. no luck with two new alts and cant test it at autozone to see if the original is still good... i have an 06 with only 38xxx on it and i wouldnt think the factory alt is fried yet... all power wires are tight on the alt and clean to and the relay under the hood is not sticking... so i have no idea what it is. if anyone has experience with this issue any and all help is welcome and taken with great consideration... i just want this damn light gone!!!

did you change batteries to see if that alleviated it?

the ONLY thing connected to that battery light is the alternator. If the light is on, then your alternator is not working properly. if you keep driving with the light on, i would considered you to be on borrowed time until the new battery dies again.

battery has never died on the car alt is charging at 13.4-14.4 all day ive replaced the alt on the car 3 times now to try and get this light to disappear but it seems the only time it goes away is if i get on the car really hard... belts are in great shape and no slack what so ever... this is confusing the hell outta me
