1993 Subaru Legacy - Battery Light on Dash

I have a '93 Legacy and have noticed within the last two weeks that my battery light icon on my dashboard remains lit after start up for the first few miles and then goes out. My parking brake light also remains lit for the same amount of time. This seems to occur only when it is a little cool outside (60's or cooler).

Any ideas on what may be causing this?

Probably an alternator problem. You should get it tested. It will probably have to be tested after setting overnight to duplicate the symptoms.

Could be two separate problems, depends.

Do an alternator output test as I have in my "The Basics" below and tell us what you find.
