Battery light always dimely lighted on 1981 Corvette

Have a new battery and alternator checks out good at the auto parts store. My gauge says that it's charging reads 12 or 13. Car always starts. What's going on ? Makes no sense at all to me.

Battery light always dimely lite on 1981 Corvette

Alternator was indeed bad, I replaced the alternator and now all is fine. 1 auto parts store tested the alternator and said it tested good. Went to a different auto parts store and it tested good but the guys testing it said they could hear noises in the alternator. I replaced the alternator and the lights out. Go figure that out. It's best to have things like this tested at more than 1 place.
