battery light came on this morning?

So my battery light came on this morning. Truck started without hesitation, and drives and runs fine. Any clue what I need to do? Drop in a new battery? is it covered under my extended warranty?

The light indicates a charging system problem, or a low battery.

Is your battery the original one? If so, you are lucky to have had it this long.

Put a volt meter on the battery with the ignition off. It should be around 12.6 volts if it's been off for a while.

Put a volt meter on the battery with the engine running. It should be around 14 volts.

Then, have a load test done on the battery.
