    We have replaced the battery and the alternator and the battery light is still on, and the battery still won't hold a charge. It won't even charge while you are driving it!

Pontiac G6 2010 replaced alternator and battery battery light is still on ?

Check voltage on battery. Measure voltage across pos and neg terminals. Should read about 13-15 vdc when charging. should read 12vdc when car is off. anything lower than 12vdc means battery has a short inside of it and needs replaced.

If alternator is working and wired correctly, and charging the battery see how long battery holds a charge. turn on the headlights and see if they go dim after awhile . If so, replace battery.

Could also be a problem somewhere behind the dashboard.

Why is battery picture shows on dashboard,

That is usually a sign that your alternator is failing to recharge the battery. Take the car to a reputable mechanic and have the charging system tested. It could be something else causing the battery to drain but most of the time it is the alternator.

I bought a new battery for my car and the red light still appears under the battery sign in the dashboard what will i do

Hi Judy, sounds as if you have a problem with the alternator, most likely with the regulator, which is built in to the same unit. While the battery is still charged, drive the vehicle to an atom electricianand have them check if the alteratorr is charging the battery. Don't throw the old one away. Regards John

The abs sign in my dashboard is on with yellow light. some friends told me that all the signs in my dashboard goes on as you startup your car then they all go off, if any sign keeps on it means that there...

Hello: That is TRUE. If the ABS light remains illuminated it means you have a problem in the ABS system. You will have to have the system diagnosed with a scanner to tell you what is the problem.

The battery light is lit up on the dashboard panel and the word AMP. What does that mean? Also the brake light is on.

It means that your battery isn't getting charged. Either your alternator is bad or the belt is broken or loose.

2 Dashboard lights have come on 1 check engine

well if the battery light came on that means your alternator is not charging the battery,,you need a new alternator,,,and maybe a new battery if it killed it,,,,that set the check engine light on,,,,,for it not charging,,,,,do not buy a aftermarket alt,,,,only saturn/gm,,as they do not meet gm/saturn specs and you will install it and still have a battery light on,,,,,,you need a factory alternator,,,yes it costs more,but unless you feel like putting a few in and out to find this out,,,,,

The D on dashboard blinks periodically what do i do if red battery sign, break sign constsntly on and difficult to maneaour steering?

D flashing on the dash means that there is a problem or code in your tranmission. Red battery light means there is a problem with you charging system most likeley bad alternator or maybe even a missing alternator belt check belt first and if the belt is in place ther is a problem withyour charging system. You can go to any auto place like Auto zone that check charging systems for free and have it checked or you can have it checked at your local repair shop. More than like the alternator is bad. HOWEVER SOMETIME IF YOU HAVE A BAD ALTERNATOR YOU CAN GET ALL THE PROBLEMS YOU STATED EXCEPT THE STEERING ONE. If your belt is missing power steering would be very difficult to turn. Good Luck get back to me if you need more help and leave me a fix ya if I did fixya.
