It means that the battery has more power in it than the alternator is putting out, therefore the alternator needs to be replaced, or the wires to it are bad.

The battery warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. And the check engine light is probably for the same issue.
Have you had the charging system checked ?

Check your battery charging rate. A possible alternator or battery failure.
If the battery is charging at around 14volts, then replace the battery.
If its charging anywhere below 13.5, then replace the alternator.
