Year, make. model. engine size?

The batter light indicates that there is a problem with charging voltage. If you check voltage at the battery you should see a minimum of 14 volts. If you see less than 13 volts there is a good chance you alternator is no longer charging the battery.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

It sounds like the alternator is going bad. I reccommend pulling the alternator and having it checked out, most auto stores do this as a free service. There could also be another problem on the rpm thing but I would start with alternator and inspect all other pulleys that the belt rides with. Good luck.

Parking brake light comes on while driving battery


your parking brake has a switch. when you push your pedal it activates the switch .if your pedal is slack it would let the switch turn on without you even touching the pedal.
battery light going on and off while your driving would usually indicate that your alternator is not charging properly. or loose battery cable.

Battery light comes on while driving with a loss of power?


Have your battery checked to make sure it does not have a bad cell, have your alternator checked to make sure it is putting out a full charge to your battery. Sometimes the ASC light is activated wen there is an engine issue that does not have it's own code.You may also wish to have your parking lamps checked to make sure your lamp connections do not have worn wire covers that may be grounding out.
