Well, that's not a good thing......

Things to start with:

Get the code read. (free at many parts stores)

Check the voltage with a meter, sometimes having it hooked up while driving helps with diagnosis....

Check idle RPM - low or fluctuating idle CAN be an issue, you don't want to chase charging problems if you actually have an idle rpm issue....

Luck!

(get back with results, someone will make better guesses from the info. you get...)
