Ditto...don't pitch that battery until you can find out if it truly is faulty. A load test would reveal if there is a dead cell etc. Also, check the battery to see if it has removable caps or lids so that you can check the electrolyte level. But as mentioned over on Xoutpost...I don't think the battery is the culprit, yet...the battery warning light illuminates when the alternator/charging system is the CULPRIT...and the battery is yet the VICTIM.
