Generally, the battery lite will come on due to a charging problem. 1st ck to make sure belt is on and tight. 2nd if you have volt meter, with vehicle running, ck voltage at battery terminals. should be over 13.5 volts, if not, verify there is 12 volt supply to large red wire at alternator. if there is voltage at alternator, but less than 13.5 across battery with it running, replace alternator

    the belt is on the drivers side of engine, the alternator is driven by the belt. it is located behind engine, on the belt line. has a single wire and a plug next to that. if never changed one before, could be quite tricky to remove.

Disassemble and clean the carb, particularly the jets. I suspect the charge light being on is a result of your destroyed battery, which needs to be replaced. Sta-bil over the winter and a smart trickle charger will prevent the problems you are having in the future...

thank u
