Question about 1991 Honda Accord
The battery light means that your Alternator is not charging the battery. Thankfully, your cars battery was fully charged, and I am guessing that you were driving during the day, because if you were using your headlights, you would have been in trouble.
Basically, a fully charged battery should read about 12.6 volts, and when your car is running, you should be able to measure about 14 volts across the battery, because that is the output of your alternator. You can get your alternator tested for free at a local auto parts store, such as Auto zone, as it is the most likely thing to change.
