What's a test light gonna do that the lights in your car can't? Nothing.

You need to take it in and have it load tested. Thats the only way to tell if the battery is good or bad.

Does that alternator have an internal regulator? Or external? I know ford likes to use external regulators but I dont know if that 92 probe is one. You may want to find out because if the alternator is testing fine but the regulator is bad....there ya go.

If the battery tests good, the alternator tests good, the belt isn't slipping and the wiring/plugs on the alternator is good then you've got some other kind of battery drain issue.
