My generator warning light went on, but did not come on again once the car was restarted. What should I do?

drove it to a store, shut it off and then restarted it about 15 min. later and the generator
warning light did not stay on. Is it possible that this is means something other than a
generator problem? I am headed out of town and need to make a decision about whether
or not to take this car.
That light means your vehicle is not charging have charging system tested.
hard to call..take it if your worried to/for a quick battery/starter/alt. check..
The most likely culprit for this is the alternator has the voltage regulator brushes worn out. Often enough you need to replace the whole alternator like i did since my whole inner core rusted out and started rubbing the walls. Have the alternator checked if its stock parts im willing to bet its worn out.
like i said. have it checked. replace the alt...
