Check the voltage at the batter 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, guess we'll change the alternator."

Battery dashboard light stay on when driving


The light is on to alert you to the fact that a problem has been detected in the charging system of the car. You need it checked by a professional to determine what that is.

On my 1995 buick lesabra my voltage light and my bettary light stays on together


sounds like the alternator has failed. If you charge up the battery and get it running long enough you should be able to check power at the battery. you should see more than 14 volts with the engine running. also check to make sure there is battery voltage at the large wire on the back of the alternator. If both of these check out than a new alternator shoould solve your prioblem.

1996 Plymouth breeze .put in used battery runs door light stays on check engine light stays on next day battery dead charged half a hour starts gas gauge moves every time I start it check engine light on...


Check battery and see if it can be fully charged. If there is an indicator on the battery it should be green or measure the voltage with the engine off and see if it is close to 12Vdc. If the battery tests good there could be a problem with the electrical wiring or a bad device that draws current when the car is off. Glove box light gould be on, trunk light stays on etc...

1995 Toyota V6 Battery light on instrument cluster stays on


The battery light comes on if the battery voltage is too low. Check you battery voltage. It should be above 12V with the engine running. If not, the alternator is not working. Next, check if there is power on the FIELD terminal of the alternator. Again, you should have 12+V. Check if the Alternator fuse is blown.
