    Battery Light on Permanently

    This leads me too think the alternator has had it, also when running its only pushing 12volts not 14 like it used too. any ideas?

    Must be the alternator, if it was the battery then you'd still get 14v with the engine running

    I have seen this problem on several cars, the problem was down to corrosion on the earthing lead from the alternator.
    Something to be aware of.
