So I see that when the light comes on when your car is running that it is bad..I start it and it turns off in a few seconds...what does it mean when car is completely off and it turns on?

1992 Ford Escort Question: why does my battery light on my dash turns on when car is off and key is removed

BEST GUESS: IGNITION SWITCH NOT ACTUALLY IN THE OFF POSITION. TRY MOVING KEY BACK A LITTLE MORE WHILE WATCHING LIGHT.

Is it possible that an internal short in the alt. would cause that symptom?
