Hi, 2007 2.0 CRDI 4WD.... has anyone else experienced the battery light coming on and the belt slipping while travelling on very wet roads. The belt and tensioner pulley were changed but the problem is still there!

The battery light indicates that the alternator is not spinning/producing enough voltage. If the work was done at a shop, take it back, if you did it yourself, re-check your work...

i had a jeep years ago that ALWAYS squealed when it was wet out

Hi, I have exactly the same problem but only since changing from the Kia original belt.
Comparing the new pattern belt to the original, the new belt is thinner which I think is the reason for the problem so will be purchasing another belt from Kia.
