Battery light info

Took out my cluster last night to paint the needles and install my white gauge faces. This morning started the car,let it get warm and proceeded to work went in the store to get some coffee and I came out and my car was off.Wouldn't start (turn over) called a pal got a jump and my headlights were very dim . My cluster is still in pieces because I only had a limited time to spend with it,but I realized the stupid battery bulb is part of the charging circiut . This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen so I had to drive to work with no heat,no lights and worst of all no sounds!!! I'll make it a priority to put this thing back together as soon as I get home. (pics soon)
