SOURCE: Where is the alternator located?
The alternator is located inside the engine comparment left side (if you are standing in-front of the car-facing the engine). It is very near to the exhaust manifold. And the alternator belt is facing the windsheild washer reservior.

Check the alternator belt, see if it is too slack. Check the connections at the alternator. You may need to take it to an auto electrician, if its not the belt loose or connections, to check the alternator. Hope that helps

SOURCE: The battery warning light is
Not sure, usually when the battery light comes on it is charging, meaning that the battery was low. The alt /gen light would mean the alt is not charging. So, depending on what else is happening, will decide what you do. Check the battery, Does it have water in it? Do you have a volt meter? It should read 13+ volts at all times. Do you have a gravity tester? Your electrolytic fluid will tell you if the battery has a dead cell or not. The car will not run without the alt working. Maybe 20 mins max. If the car runs, It must be the battery, but it won't run on a dead battery either. It could be the voltage regulator, or a weak battery. get it checked out. You can take out the alt and get it checked out too before you buy a new one, if the battery is good. Hope this helps.

Their might be a shorted wire somewhere betwene them. Either that or your using more power then is produced by the alternator.
