Sounds like a battery or alternator problem. I would go to your local autozone for a free check on both. If you cant make it there try the easy stuff like making sure the battery terminals are clean and free of corrosion, that they are tight on the battery. Make sure the wires going to the alternator are tightly connected, and that you cannot see any frayed wires going to the battery or alternator. Hope this helps! ~Derek~

My mazda milenia battery light cam on then after driving about 7 miles, the radio cut off then a few minutes later all check lights on my dash cut on. Could this alternator?

Yes once the voltage drops below 12.6, your light will come on..and the longer you drive it, the lower the battery will get, and the car will eventually cut off..It will start back up if you jump it off, but it will only get you so far..So definitly get your alternator checked...But check all your fuses first..If you have blown the alternator fuse, then your problem is not expensive, as in buying an alternator...Goodluck
