Default Dash warning light (car with key in it)

When I started my car yesterday the battery light and a lighted (yellow/amber) car with a key inside was lit. It seemed that when I accelerated while driving the light went off, and I thought it was a loose belt. However, last night it would not go out, and the battery totally died, leaving me stranded on the side of the road.

I did get a jump, and after running a few miles on the freeway, suddenly something seemed to switch on, and I had bright lights and everything normal, until I exited the freeway and then everything died again.

The belts are tight...... just can't figure this one out.

The inidcator light is related to the car's immobilzer system.
