Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

BATTERY LIGHT (idiot light)

I have a 2002 Dodge Caravan with 80,000 miles. This morning the "BATTERY LIGHT" came on and I'm wondering if this is telling me my battery may be low (I assume it's original) or if it may be something else? (alternator??)

Any assistance you can provide will be appreciated

Good Day
You are right the alternator is most likely done,( regulator in the alt) This is some thing that you should take care of right away, Right now the battery is doing all of the work and it will not keep the charge up. Hope that this helps you out please let me know how you make out.
