It means something is wrong with your charging system. Can be a loose of corroded battery cable, defective alternator or a battery with a dead short.
If you are 100% sure the battery and alternator are good and the battery is loosing it's charge then something is on pulling power from the battery. Can be any light or any relay on the vehicle.
The light is on because the alternator is not putting out the required voltage. Either the belt is broken, loose, or the alternator is defective.
Is the alternator actually working. It is possible to buy a new alternator that is defective.
Not a good sign, This could mean that your charging system (alternator) isn't doing its job.
