Question Red Battery Indicator On

The battery died on my 2001 BMW 530i so I replaced it over the weekend.
Car seems to be running / starting with no issues but the red battery indicator light on the dash stays on.

Any thoughts on why I would be seeing this? I had the car since 2001 replaced it once with no issues / so this one has me puzzled.

Thanks

Engine check is a different issue... What alternator does it have? The one with or without the coolant pump?
