Generally if charge light is on, alternator has a bad diode in it. This lets the charged battery lose its power by flowing in the reverse direction. It sounds as the alt., is either not connected right or is swtill bad

The bottom fan belt on my 87 xtracab recently broke in the middle of traffic and those same warning lights came on immediately, so you might want to have the belts checked, especially the one driving the alternator.
