Aside from a dead battery or faulty charging system, the most common electrical issues owners are likely to experience are burned-out light bulbs. After bulbs, though, it's likely potluck: Electrical problems could crop up in many places, from the stereo to an electric motor for a power window or sunroof to an electric fuel pump packing it in. In addition, the cause might be bad wiring, a short, there may be a faulty switch or some other gremlin that's hard to pinpoint.
If the battery light is on and you're still driving the car, turn off as many electrical accessories as you can, such as the stereo, air conditioning or heater, and avoid using electrical controls such as power windows. Reducing the amount of electricity the car is consuming will increase the distance you can drive before the battery is discharged. Get to a mechanic as quickly as possible, and have the battery, wires and charging system checked out to find the cause of your problem and what you need to repair or replace.
