The battery light on the dash board turns on only if the battery is not charging
witch is means the problem basically on the (dynamo) itself and it probably affected your car`s battery as well
so you need to check the dynamo first check the dynamo belt
if not then you are facing a problem you`ll have to tail your car then have it`s dynamo checked at the work shop
the dynamo could have a bad regulators witch is something like ic or semiconductor thing
or the dynamo itself got melted cooper coils and it means you need to replace the whole dynamo
battery to be recharged and checked at the workshop and after the recharging completed if it found to be stop charging you will have to replace it also

How do i know when my alternator is going bad

If the batt light is on, the alternator is not charging the battery.
If the battery won't hold a charge, it could be failing.
If you are having a specific problem with your PT Cruiser or Mustang, let us know what it is.

One head light lamp light is dim

If the headlights were not changed at the same time the dim one may be about to go out. If you change the dim one and not both of them the other one will most likely get dim while the other is still bright

Grand Cherokee wont start, clicking coming from interior fuse box

Bare or burned wire, most likely battery cable or alternator cable near exhaust system which might be making contact with a metal part somewhere, off and on, because of bumps, vibration, etc.

Dash lights started dimming then went away completely. Now the in dash stereo cd lost its lights as well????

Please do not mistake this as an insult but I must ask... Check dash dimmer switch settings (on headlamp switch) if set is ok. Next would probably be a bad ground wire to instrument cluster and radio lamp circut
