    Could be dynamo or regulator.  The red light shows that the system is
discharging. It should extinguish when the system is charging, at 1500
rpm or so. 
    Check connections first, then test the dynamo.  Worn brushes are easy
to replace and are a frequent cause of low or no output. 
     In the workshop manual is a diagnostic for regulator (control box). 
It seems difficult to do, but is pretty easy.   A "moving-coil" voltmeter
is the typical one that you probably have.
