Battery light stays on while driving whats wrong?

This usually indicates that there's a problem with your alternator. The car battery works in such a way that it keeps getting recharged as you drive. The alternator is the component that ensures the battery is sufficiently recharged. So the battery light comes on if it senses that the battery is not being charged sufficiently - this might be accompanied by a foreign sound under the hood if indeed the alternator belt is broken for instance. You need to get the battery/alternator checked out at a mechanic or battery centre as soon as possible. If you continue driving the car, especially if you will be using headlights and other power-dependant functions, the power left in the battery is used up, with no recharging taking place, until it's completely dead. This might mean your car randomly switching off on you in the middle of the road as you are driving. Jump-starting won't help and the car will need to be towed. Best advice is to get it checked out immediately.
