Check charging system light...

I replaced my alternator and now my battery light stays on and also my display panel keeps alerting me to check my charging system. I've taken it to the local shops jus to get a quick check and they've all said that the connections are fine and that there's no electrical problems. Any ideas on how to get the check charging warning to stop, or am I missing something?

    The battery light wouold come on, the fan motor would slow when vehicle changed into 3rd gear. Had a local Auto Zone test the battery and alternator but they could'nt get a good reading, said to clean battery connection. Did this and now battery light stays on all time.

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.

Is it the alternator?


Sounds like a charging system problem. The engine runs off of the alternator but if it is not charging the battery properly the battery will be drained until I engine will no longer run. You need to get the vehicle to a repair shop to have the battery and charging system check for defects

What does the check battery charging system light mean you have just changed the alternator, starter and had the battery checked. The car will stay on battery and the alternator will not pick up the t


The warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery.
Since you have replaced the alternator it could be defective or the problem could be in the wiring harness. There is a fuse or a fuse wire between the alternator and battery which could have blown.
You may need a shop manual to have the test procedures and wiring diagrams.

I have a 99 jeep wrangler and have had 2 new batteries and the battery keeps going dead...any solutions?


Hey there, There could possibly be a problem with the internals of the Alternator.The voltage regulator controls the alternator output and knows when the battery needs charging and when it is full. It keeps the electronic systems in the car at about 14-14.8v. If it is faulty it can over charge the battery and ruin it in a short period of time. Have an auto electrician check the alternator before you replace the battery again.Hope that helps

My 2006 Tribeca keeps draining the battery. I've been through 3 batteries already. If I don't drive it for 2 or more days the battery is drained and either doesn't turn over or after several...


or any of several reasons:

  • You accidentally left the lights on or some other accessory that pulls power from the battery even when the ignition key is off.
  • The battery is not being recharged while the vehicle is being driven (you have a charging problem)
  • There is a key off parasitic electrical drain on the battery because a relay is sticking, a module is not shutting down, or there is a shorted diode in the alternator.
  • Your battery is old and will not hold a charge anymore. The battery needs to be replaced.

Battery is only chargeing intermittently I think. Both lights and battery warning dashboard warnings come on, and stay on when I start the car. I believe the lights icon is only to alert you to a failed...


You need to measure the charging voltage and current using a multimeter while Rev'ing the engine. If there is no clean flow to the battery then you need to start from the alternator, the output ac and the charging regulator section which rectifies and controls the charging. The alternator can be taken out and checked individually , if there is a steady AC flow. Check the battery ground and also the charging regulator which is usually an extra unit- trace the lines of the alternator to this unit.

My volt light want cut off and my battery want stay charged i got a new altinator and starter all my wires have power the only thing is the battery want stay charged


Either you have an electrical drain - or the battery needs replacement.
If the battery is over 5 years old - consider a new battery. If you have a test meter - remove the +ve with ignition and all other systems off. Use the meter to measure amps between +ve cable and battery +ve.

Possible causes of drain are a security system that never goes into sleep mode - or entertainment systems incorrectly wired - even CD changers stuck.
