If it's the battery light then. Check alternator output. Should be around 14.5 volts. Double check you battery terminals. On my wife's 2003 had to replace both cause they would not tighten down all the way. Also check where the negative cable hooks to the frame and motor. These cars tend to corrode in these spots. If it's the check engine light have the codes read at auto zone and post codes back on here.

I had the exact same thing happen to me years ago on a '78 Eldorado. I left the interior lights on by mistake which killed the battery. Got a jump start and drove it home (about 2 miles away). The generator light stayed on. I then removed and charged the battery. The generator light still stayed on. I replaced the alternator and it was fine. My guess was that the alternator was dying and the load of the dead battery finished it off. HTH. -Jim
