"Check Battery Light" coming on after a repair job

Just recently had my 2006 Sienna fixed after hitting a deer square in the hood. Everything seems to be working well except not long after I picked up the car from the shop my ''check battery light'' would come on periodically. It is now coming on almost permanently. Can't seem to find what ''triggers'' it.

It first seemed to come on when we were using both front ''plug-ins'' for GPS and DVD for the kids. When I would unplug one or the other it seemed to go off. Then it began to happen when we weren't using either plug-in. When the battery light is on the cruise control will not work. That seems to be the only consequence we can find other than the light being on. What is the likely cause? solution?

The manual recommends driving it straight to the dealer for repair. Are we at risk of stranding ourselves or damaging the car as we search for a solution? Thank you in advance for your help.

Why does the check engine light stay on in 1999 sienna went off after new battery was installed...thenon again

The engine light stays on because the computer has detected a fault code, when disconnecting the battery the memory is cleared but the fault code will eventually be set in the computer again until the problem is fixed, since there are many reasons for the check engine light to come on it is necessary to connect the vehicle to a diagnostic computer that can read the codes, this can be done at most repair shops, the dealer or some autoparts stores.

2006 Toyota Sienna noisy ride

Sounds like you have an aerodynamic noise issue.

I assume that your vehicle has a roof rack.
Loosen the front cross bar, and move it backward. See if the noise "moves" backwards. If it does, remove the crossbar, it comes off from the back of the roofrack; turn it around and reinstall it.
