check battery light came on. now won't start and say steering and traction low?? on 2009 Pontiac G6

was driving home last night and my check battery light came on. nothing was left on and i couldn't see any other problems. today went to start it and it wouldn't start and says steering and traction low. can you tell me what's wrong? is it just a loose connection? do i need a new battery??

You need to have the charging system checked, most likely an alternator problem.
