odd behaviour

Today after sitting for three days my 156 ran fine but had several moments of madness
when the speedo stopped working and the battery light came on.
Not sure what is happening-any help welcome

Now I know next to nothing about stuf I just break things but maybe its battery, had problems with previous cars and batteries not performing can do strange things to a car. I bet its because its been stood but seeing as its only for 3 days I would say get your battery checked/charge it up but like I said I dont know anything so good luck!
