If it is, I never heard of that. I do not believe that is true at all.

That doesn't make sense to me. If the battery light is on while the car is running is usually means your alternator is bad. If the battery was bad/dead, it won't run long or won't be running at all because it won't start.

ive replaced the alternator and the battery.... still kept dieing.

its just when you turn the ignition on that the light wasnt coming on.... after taking the dash apart we found the bulb/ connection to be loose after putting it back together its been charging fine... ive replaced the alternator and the battery.... still kept dieing
