Engine Stalled, Battery light came on

Hey guys, this just happen to me. I was driving and all of a sudden my car stalls and the battery light came on. I find it weird because I just replaced my battery and the starter and also I replaced the alternator last year. Any idea what it could be? Lose wires? I just tighten them more to be sure. car drives fine but I just dont want to let it stall on the freeway, it would be a scary situation :/

Jiggle your battery cables first, before you tighten them, to see if they are loose - make sure they are tightened firmly.

Yea, They are loose, I also found out that the teeth of the screw is worn out, so I have to go to the dealer tomorrow to buy the screw and long screw to tighten the battery. Its tight now but still driving while being nervous. They jsut checked the battery and my alternator (took it to autozone) and they said its good. But i really hope its that and nothing else.
