United-Kingdom My mini cooper battery light stays on

My 2002 mini cooper has recently had a new steering pump and everything was fine until yesterday when i fired her up the battery light came on and the power steering failed, the first time the steering failed there was no battery warning light it just died but this time the battery light is on.
The battery was tested and it was fine also the alternator and belts was tested and was fine, iam being told its defo the alternator can anyone else put some light in the subject.��

Check the cables to the alternator are not damaged and that the cable is correctly fitted to the alternator, if they are OK, have the alternator checked for a faulty charging circuit. The PSP wont work if the alternator isn't functioning.
