HYUNDAI MATRIX BATTERY PROBLEM

2005 Hyundai Matrix • 6 cylinder 2WD Manual • 250,000 miles

Hi,
My matrix dashboard warning lights came on and wont go off after starting the car. Battery, Airbag, Handbrake, ABS all on but car still drives. Please help this car is costing me a fortune.
I have replaced the alternator's (rectifier) about a month ago after the the battery and hand break warning lights came on and the battery died.
The problem started when I was driving in heavy rain - could this be a short or am I looking at something more severe?
Many Thanks.
