I would lean towards alternator - A battery will very rarley put an alternaotr light on .

It was the alternator - $500 later the car is back running again.

My husbands car use to do that until we changed a few fuses and put the battery cables on real good.

my batter light came on in my truck...and go figure the aletnator went 10 minutes later with no warning at all 30 miles away from home in a snow storm and it was only 10 degrees out .... gotta love it
