Question about 1986 Ford Ranger 2WD
The negative wires are the main source or everything returning to the negative terminal of the battery. If they are . broken or dirty then there is no track back to the negative pole of the battery and so you will loose everything.

There is a diode in most older alternators that when working properly put out the light u speak of. The guage has some age so - take ur truck to advance auto - auto zone or one of them - have them check the battery - if u had to get a jump and had a problem it might be time for a new battery. You don't say how old the battery or alternator is so have them looked at.
If the problem leaves you stranded again then you will know it soon enough. To avoid being stranded - buy a GOOD or BETTER jump box - in the winter u need this - -also you can for a short time - remove your battery and CAREFULLY hook your cables to your jump box - wrapping the POSITIVE cable in some kind of old rag [t shirt is good] put a little tape around it or otherwise secure it so it doesn't hit metal while your using it as a battery and this will get you home or to a shop.
