get battery and altenator tested at nearest auto part store such as autozone. a bad battery will make battery light come on.also sometimes a bad battery will make altenator work alot harder causing altenator to go bad as well.

Yes, get the system tested as Jay recommends. But to clarify, a battery light on is always an issue with the charging system. The alternator and or wiring is always suspect. Having just a low voltage battery will not trigger the battery light in most cases.
