    Battery light

    This morning as I was driving into work I noticed that the battery light was on. As I looked at it it went off. Am I right in thinking that this means that the battery is on its way out and needs to be replaced?

    No, it means your alternator wasn't charging, it may be dodgy & about to fail.

    Excellent, just what I like to hear !

    Any idea what a replacement is likely to cost (to supply and fit)?
