Question about 1999 Dodge Neon
My cd plaer started turning on and off then i turn my head lights on and the left one blew and then my battery kinda blew up..what do you think is going on witht his one?
I think the alternator/regulator is overcharging the battery. this explains the cd player turning on and off and the headlight blowing. overcharging also will boil the battery fluid down and trap explosive gases in the battery. when it got really hot because of the lack of fluid, the battery shorted out and ignited the gases in the battery. replace the battery headlight and alternator, and check the output of the system at the battery while running it should be between 13.6 and 14.5.

Some cars have a separate voltage regulator. good luck. also i would check all your terminals for wear and might replace them too.
