The 1st thing to check when this lite comes on is the alternator.
How to check it free: got Pep Bys/Advance Auto Parts/ Autozone and ask for a free "Charging System Check." They'll hook up their computerized diagnostic gizmo, and tell you which part is dying/dead.
The experts always check voltage with a voltmeter (as good as the auto parts stores machine).
If the alternator is putting out > 14V (measured with engine on, since that's the only time the alternator's working), then alternator's good.
Measure battery voltage with engine off too - if there's a 1.5-2V difference between battery voltage
with engine on and engine off, then the alternator's working to cause that difference.
