Akronclean, check the condition of your belt(s) and the alternator, a simple test of the alternator is to have the car running (in park of course) and disconnect the power cable from the battery, if the car runs the alternator will be ok if it stalls replace the alternator also check all your connections and make sure they are tight and nor corroded hope this helps,good luck

Check the connections from the battery. Loose battery terminal, corroded wires, loose from other end of wires. Simply trace it back, more that likely loose on starter end

Low battery light comes on, then goes off, followed by the seatbelt light to start flashing. Took for a drive today, same thing happens, then all other warning lights come on and car just goes dead in...


It sounds like your battery is not charging. You may have a good battery and a good alternator but what you need to look for is the alternator fuse . It is usually a square block style fuse , 50 to 80 amps, normally in a fuse box under the dash. If it blows the car will drive till it runs out of battery juice and go bonkers just like you describe right before it dies. The charge light on the dash usually will not warn you of the problem. I think the manufacturers just want to charge you big dollars just to replace a fuse most people are not familiar with.

Brake light comes on auto each time you start the car (saftey check) and will go off when you press brake pedal.

Blinking arrow will stop when you click seat belt together (driver)

Put in key hold in mileage reset button and turn key to on (dont start the car )the last click before starting (and keep finger on miles reset button till flashing stops

Check Your Battery, o perhaps You have a power leak, The way to do that is, with the car off key out take one of the battery terminals off than on the battery nipple connection put the end of a test light, and on the terminal that You have remove the other end of the test light, if light comes on You have a power leak, to find in which circuit leaks live test light connected to both, battery and removed terminal start taking fuses on and off till lights on test light goes off, and when that happen, that's the fuse where the power leak is located
