Post battery light?

i have a manuel, 2007 wrangler, on occasion -i almost stall it. after a potential stall this morning, the battery light came on. i just had a new battery and alternator installed less than 6 months ago. when restarted, the light did not return. just a fluke, another jeep eletrical thing, or should i be concerned. discuss.

Thats normal, and nothing to worry about. Since you almost stalled the rpms dropped so low that the alternator wasn't putting out enough, so it tripped your battery light. Nothing is wrong, and nothing to worry about. Just practice your driving the manual.
