Battery light usually means the alternator is not charging. Did you check the voltage? From your description of squeaking, I would check the pulleys, bearings, belt tensioner, alternator and the serpentine belt as the possible culprit.

I had the serpentine belt replaced 2 yrs ago. Im at work- I dont have anything to check the voltage with me- i know it should be 11.5-12.5..and the battery is 7yr old on 10 yr battery- can you estimate a cost on what an alternator replacement can cost?
