Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

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

Thanks

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.

Cheers

Why does my 2002 Dodge Caravan Crank but wont start, check Oil Light on?


The oil light is the serious problem-it may mean the engine has lost oil pressure which is very dangerous. Don't drive with the oil light on- have a shop check your oil pressure with a mechanical oil pressure gauge. The previous owner's negligence in not changing the oil may have caused serious internal damage.
The code is not truly a diagnostic trouble code-it only indicates the battery has been disconnected within the last 50 starts, which would have erased any stored codes if there were any.

Take it to Autozone and let them check it to see what code shows up. They wont clear it for you, but you can do it your self by disconnecting the negitive battery cable and reconnect it after 30 minutes.

If your battery voltage is low, this will cause the alarm to go off. Even if you put it in valet mode it will still go off until you change your vehicle battery.
