BATTERY LIGHT

1988 Mercedes Benz 560sl

Engine Mechanical problem
1988 Mercedes Benz 560sl V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles

MY CAR WOULD NOT START. RECHARGED BATTERY AND WHEN I CONNECTED CABLES THE BATTERY LIGHT CAME ON BEFORE I STARTED ENGINE. WHEN I STARTED ENGINE, THE LIGHT WENT OFF. WHEN I STOPPED ENGINE, LIGHT CAME BACK ON.
NOW THE REVERSE IS HAPPENING. LIGHT IS OFF WHEN ENGINE IS OFF, BUT COMES ON AS SOON AS I START ENGINE. DO YOU THINK I HAVE A BAD ALTERNATOR?
