Hi there ,good evening to you

Ok if the battery light came on followed by a rise in engine temperature then the first thing to check is the accessory belt (fan belt ) as both the alternator and water pump run off this belt


The belt may have snapped or may just require adjustment

If you look down the drivers side of the engine bay to check the belt condition

If the coolant was excessively low the water pump could also be the issue eg collapsed

If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
