SOURCE: when running battery light comes on and everything

If the light is coming on our alternator is prbabaly bad/going bad, the machine doesn't always test accurate when in the car, get a 2nd opinion. Take ths alternator out and have them test it that way. Also check your batt cables and make sure they are tight, secure and not corroded.

My panel lights are too dim and won't brighten. I checked all the fuses and they are all working fine. I turned the dimmer knob all the way to the right and they still won't brighten. When I first turn...


Your alternator may be going bad. Once the car is running, your battery has done its job and the alternator takes over. The alternator is responsible for firing the plugs, running your lights, your radio, your heater/AC, and anything else electrical, as well as keeping your battery charged. If the alternator is on its way out (or even has a less than good ground), you may experience some lights dimming, or even choppy radio signal. If the alternator is already gone, and your car is running off of the battery full time, you will also get the dimming you describe, and sooner or later the car will not even start. Take your car to an auto parts store (Advance, or Auto Zone, etc) and ask them to test your alternator. This is a free service.

1990 buick no start turn key dash lights go out and all is dead


When you say "turn key dash lights go out and all is dead", do the lights come back on when you turn the key back to "off"?
With key off, try turning on your headlights- are they bright?
Flip to high beams-do they get brighter?
**If lights get dim while trying this, it's the battery-(dead/needs charged or replaced-which may have been caused by a bad alternator).
Leave lights on, now turn your ignition switch to "on"-do the lights get dim or go out?
Try and start the car-anything change?
If the lights were fine until you tried to start the car, more than likely your battery terminals need cleaning/tightening.
The lights should at least get dim when you try and start the car but only while the starter turns over: when the engine is running your lights (as well as all your other electrics) are powered by the alternator.
If you do all this and lights are okay all through this procedure, your problem is probably in your starter circuit. (Starter relay, ignition/key switch)

Hope this helps.

99 Alero battery light comes on, but starting


The problem may be your alternator.
Check the alternator 'IND' wire is properly connected.
Check the alternator is charging OK - Battery terminal voltage 14.0 - 14.5V approx when running.

Issue with dash lights dimming while driving,


If the battery and alternator tested fine. I would have the charging system rechecked when engine is hot and at high rpm's. This way the checks are being done as if you were driving and driving for a long time. Alternators can work fine when cold but weaken when hot or stop working. This problem is not rare but only is seen occassionly. Unless it was checked at an electrical shop the average shop doesn't run these tests for they don't see the problem often enough to automaticly run them at all times. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

Lights go dim


If you're running the car under a heavy load, lights will dim briefly (ie. you turn the ac on full)

With the engine running, the leads on the battery should read 13-14V
