Failing alternator or battery.
Using a volt meter, check the battery voltage across the terminals with the engine running. If lower than 13 volts, then replace alternator.

I'm assuming the alternator drive belt is adjusted correctly and the engine idle is above 500 revs.

Battery light keeps comming on


you have a short/grounding out issue or if you have the lead style battery terminals any sort of crack in them will drain the battery as well.

I have a 2008 jeep liberty that if it sits for more than 24 hrs the battery is completely dead ive had it at the dealership 2 times and they replaced battery and said nothing else was wrong with it


Welcome to FixYa.com
You have a short or something that is not shutting off --such as a light bulb in glove box or ignition switch.
remove battery cable end from battery-install 12 volt test light (one end of test light to cable end the other to battery post) -- if there is a draw --test light will glow a little --or bright. Now pull one fuse at a time checking the test light. Once light goes out that is the circuit to look into-- some circuits need power such as computer and radio --to keep memory alive

Battery light keeps coming on. brand new battery in car and car keeps dieing


Hi:
The battery light means that your charging system isn't working, so you most likely have a bad alternator, or connection to the battery.
You can test your alternator with a volt meter.
First,get your battery 100% charged up. It should read about 12.6 volts.
Next, start your car, and check the voltage across the battery. It should be at least 14 volts. If not, you are not charging your battery.
Most auto parts stores will check out your battery or alternator for free, if you stop by and don't own or can borrow a volt meter.

Why does the battery light keep coming on after


The battery light indicates insufficient voltage. I would recheck all the battery connections to be sure they are clean and tight. I would also have the alternator output tested, since the light will come on if the alternator is not providing sufficient voltage to keep the battery charged. Take the vehicle to an autoparts store and they will test the battery condition and alternator output for free. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped, Best wishes.

Power loss/blown lights


Check the battery and alternator. Sounds like an over charge condition. Look for any possibility that water/ice got into any wiring/conections and broke/shorted them.

Truck won't start, new battery, lights keep flashing


Sometimes the new battery is not 100% charged. Put it on a charger or jump start the car, the alternator should then charge up the battery.
