So it is either the alternator getting ready to fail or you have a wiring problem somewhere in the charging circuit. Make sure the alternator and engine grounds are good first as this seem to be a problem area as the car gets older. If you don't find a problem with the wiring then take it to someone who can check the system on the car, they can actually load the system to see if the output is within specs.

Hope you checked when light was on. If you have 12 volts engine off (normal) and 14 volts engine on (normal) at least you know battery is being charged like it suppose to you won't be left dead in the water. I think it's in the alternator itself because the alternator is what turns on the light I think it's got a bad diode inside the alternator which is turning on the light.
