An activated alternator or battery light means more electricity is being used than is being replaced. But do not worry just turn off any electrical consuming devices and drive until you reach a auto-spark. You should try not to turn the car off as starting it again is heavy on electricity.
Warning! If the temperature light comes on at the same time the alternator light is on (or simply by itself), stop the car as soon as you can. The same belt that drives the alternator often drives the water pump. If the water pump stops working, it won’t be long before the engine overheats and its internal parts melt. The result will be major damage and expensive repairs.
