Light came on, i let the car sit over night and it did not come on the next morning later i drove it for a few minutes and it came on again i reved the engine to about 5k and it turned off for the rest of the day now today it did the same thing after driving for a few the light came on and when i get the engine to about 5k rpm it shuts off and turns on when the rpms drop i drove for about an hour straight with the light off and now i started the car and the light is on again when i rev it turns of and comes back on also the battery is a remanufactured one i replaced it the same day that i did the Alternator, could my alt be going bad?

What did your voltage say after you measured voltage output of the alternator while the engine is running?

Battery light on and off?

Search parasitic draw tests as mentioned above.

I would also check and recheck the three primary grounds to make sure those are tight, cables look good, which can affect the whole electrical system in general.
