I adjusted my Belt today because it was loose. However, when I finish putting the belt back on, I started the vehicle and the battery warning light came on and stayed on. The alternator were making this high pitch noise, and I noticed the belt was loose. Is my alternator bad.

Re-adjust the belt to make it tight.

BELT TENSION
Inspect condition and tension of generator drive belt prior to performing any on-vehicle charging system tests. Replace belt and/or repair tensioner mechanism if necessary. Belt tension is okay if belt length indicator is within limit marks on tensioner. Replace belt and/or tensioner mechanism if necessary.
