Remove power to all aftermarket components, if you know how to use a multi-meter connect to power source inside vehicle.. Drive normal, if voltage drops below 12v while driving, it is faulty alternator. If bat light comes on and voltage is above 12v the plug on the alternator might be correded and throwing faulty light, or bad ground in gauge cluster...

SOURCE: hand brake
Remove the plastic trim from around the handbrake, and you will see a little magnetic sensor. Simply bend the mount or make an adjustment.
The limit switch is out of place. The light comes on when there is no metal for the magnet sensor to sense (it assumes you have pulled the e-brake).
