We, battery light really does not mean anything battery wise, What it does mean is the charging system developed a problem and thus the battery is not being recharged. Then? the engine runs only off the battery till you turn it off? then not enough battery power to restart without a jump start. 985 of the time? you have a bad alternator. The alternator is not charging battery, you then get the light, then battery drains as it has, then it will not restart. I feel an alternator will be needed
