Question about Cars & Trucks
If the battery light comes on while your are driving than the alternator is not charging. The battery light comes on to tell you there is a problem with the charging system not the battery. It is normal for the light to come on when you turn the key to the run position and then it should go out shortly after the engine starts. When the light is on check the voltage at the battery if you have less than 13 volts the alternator is not charging.

make sure to check your fuses and ground wires first. when you are set on which part is bad do a quick check of everything else before you jump into it.

they don't want you too ... there is a terminal usually near one of the strut towers with a red cap on it and you hook up the ground to any where else metal is showing.

My instrument panel is doing the exact same thing. It started today. I almost think it may be a loose cable to the computer that drives the lights. Did you ever resolve your issue?
