If the battery light is on while you are driving it means that the battery is not charging, The altenator(Component that charges the battery) might be faulty or it could be a sliping V - Belt since the altenator is drivin by a belt that runs from the crankshaft, the V-Belts also drive the Aircon and Power steering so make sure you check the tensioner for the altenator and if the problem persists have it checked.

ehiter your battery is dying, or your alternatos is slipping.
try checking the tension on your belt, if is kinda loose maybe that's your problem.
if it's ok, then it may be your battery.

Have you checked if the battery is fully charged? If it is, it could just be a case of loose wiring. The mechanic should be able to identify and repair this for a low cost. Nothing serious.

3 weeks ago my car would not start, replaced battery and it has been fine till tonight and it would not start.


3 days on a new battery, yes it is significant. Four things can do this in a short time. alternator, starter, radio, and interior lights/ light switch. Alternator can be checked on the car, A sign for the starter is that it may drag or drag sometimes. Radio is lights staying on after the door is opened,Even the clock. Light switch is interior lights don't work or the dimmer switch doesn't work. These are just suggestions that I have run across. They still need to be checked. It can get costly.

Battery blinking


Hello!
Tighten the electrical connections on the alternator. Check to see if the alternator is good, although in rare cases a poor internal connection on the alternator can cause this, The cable that runs from your alternator to your battery ( EITHER END OF IT ) could be mostly broken...not all the way...just hanging by a few threads. Tighten your battery cables. Your car's 10 years old, check for a good ground connection from the battery at the frame of the car ( no rust ). Good Luck!
