Battery light on means you have a charging issue. Have the alternator checked and all wiring including the battery terminals for corrosion. Could also be a loose connection.

We have chenge the alternator and clean all the wires. This is what is happening. I was driving down the road and the turning signals quit working then the speed odometer stop working. Then about five min. After that the gas and temp. gages quit working too. And all of the other lights came on. So we change the alternator, now the battery light is staying on and is still doing the same thing as before.
