Electrical system diagnostic is in order here but this is probably going to be a failed alternator. output tests will support the suspicion.... This vehicle should put out a min of 13.6 volts and 85 amps of power @ 2000 rpms.Load test battery as well and test sytem with known good charged battery

Battery light is on when idleing, but when i accelerate battery light goes out


Two things can make the bat light come on at idle but go off above idle.
The belt could be slipping because it is not tight, or glazed, or the alternator could be defective.
Once the engine starts, the alternator should be making enough current to "turn the light off". The light is grounded thru the alternator until it is charging, which reverses that circuit and kills the ground source for the light.
If you are sure the belt is ok, I would have the alternator bench tested, because usually if the belt is slipping it slips more at higher speeds.

Battery light comes on when accelerating, alternator is ok


In fact the Alternator is on it's way out, I had Taurus that was doing the same thing. When the RPM's were over 3000 the light would flicker. What happens is, the slip rings wear and get out of round and when the RPM's get too high the brushes start to bounce causing the light to flicker. Keep in mind the alternator is spinning about 3 times the speed of the engine. Pick up an alternator it's just a matter of time, mine went about 6 months like that, try to keep the RPM's low.
