means your battery isn't being charged by the alternator. What originally seemed like a flat battery being the problem, would more than likely be the alternator at fault, which will drain the battery, not keep it charging on the move, hence, battery light displayed on your dash. Before jumping to the spares shop, check all the connecting wiring between these components, in case of any loose connections
The "battery" light indicates a problem with your charging system... So either your alternator or regulator, Battery, ground connection or fuse, check the error codes too
