The battery light indicted a charging issue. Check out the alternator and see if it is charging properly. If it is indeed not working correctly, you will have some drivability issues. Not sure what you mean by Dynamo, can you explain?

over here we call it dynamo well basically once the car starts it runs on that "dynamo thingi" i think its called the alternator or i dont know i changed sparks plugs and spark wires and air filer and fuel pump and filter but when i am at full stop on "D" Gear the car RPM lowers and the car vibrates ..... makes the car have a bad launch while in round abouts ...

YOU CAN TAKE THE ALTENATOR TO KRAGEN AUTO PARTS, AND THEY CAN CHECK/TEST IT FOR YOU. IT'S USUALLY REAL INEXPENSIVE IF NOT FREE. DYNAMO IS BASICALLY THE CONTACT BRUSHES{POINTS}

if dynamo is the contact mushing on the alternator then its really easy just to swap those out, ive had the same alternator for 300,000 miles i just keep on replacing the 'dynamo'
