Angry charging ok so why is the GEN light on?

hello, my voltmeter was showing 11.5v so took my alternator over to advanced auto parts and it tested fine, steady 14 volts.

so i buy a new voltage regulator plug it in and now the volt meter is showing 12v at idle and 14v at 2000 + rpm. all's well i thought but the GEN idiot light is on and I cant' figure out why.

checked for obvious shorts, loose wires etc, all my lights work. everything looks fine including my volt meter. what's up with the darn light?

any thoughts on what the heck is going on and what i can check?
