That light actually means there's something wrong with the charging system. Most likely the alternator has failed. But before condemning the alternator check that the drive belt isn't loose or broken. HTH. -Jim


Well how about the fuse that is on the positive battery pole connection..its causing all other warning lights to causing the power steering to act up..its seem something is faulting the main battery happened call of a is running fine other than it seems it want to cut off due to the battery?


Once the alternator stops charging the vehicle is running straight off the battery until it is dead and shuts the engine off.
