Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should see more than 14 volts. If it is less than 13 volts than the alternator is no longer charging. Make sure you check for power on the large wire on the back of the alternator!

Testimonial: "voltage output is only 11 volts, even though it tested good at auto zone, I guess we'll try a new alternator. Thanks. "

You may have a power problem, the battery light is an indicator of charging problems that can affect performance of electrial componets [ the transmission is controled that way ]. Have the charging system checked out. If you had an alternator replaced recently then it could be a faulty remanufactured one - this is very commom with this model alernator.

The alernator does not appear to be charging the battery,the car has not been used for three weeks,battery has been charged but battery light stays on,can this problem be fixed easily?


It sound's like the battery need's to be replaced, the alternator can't be checked without the car started, to check the alternator measure the voltage across the battery, it should read higher than the battery voltage. if the voltage on the battery stay's at 12 volt's with the car started the alternator is bad.

Dash lights


HI..
Normally when those lights come on .
Is why the alernator is no charging or is charging to much.
Or you have problem with wires.
Check the wires and all connection from the battery to the alternator..

I hope this can help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya.
