Alternator or battery problem

Hi guys,

I'm looking at a car on eBay that was originally listed at the beginning of December and won, however, the winning bidder never collected.

Anyhow, the new listing now advises that since the first listing, the alternator dash tell tale illuminates and stays illuminated but the car still starts and runs fine.

My question is, could this be a battery running down problem (as the cars been sat unused for a while now) or would it be the alternator?

I am assuming the alternator runs of the aux belt and would cost a bit to replace?

Advice greatly appreciated as I may be able to get myself a bargain here

Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
