Choke Heater Relay Buzzing, Choke light illumitated brightly at all times

Hello all, I am hoping some of you can help me with a problem I'm having. I have a 1983 Daytona trans am with a T-5 and LG4 305. I had recently replaced the weak original alternator with an OE Reman unit. Not two days later, as I was cruising, the choke light came on and I heard loud buzzing noises under the dashboard. Ive read up on forums and know about the alternator diodes causing this, so I got a warranty replacement alternator and am still experiencing the same problem... two bad alternators in a row seems very unlikely to me... I'm wondering if there are any other solutions to prevent my head from spinning too much.. hoping to find help soon!!

In my case the choke heater fuse was bad. Learning the hard way that the weirdest problems are often simple fixes lol
