Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus
The battery indicator on the dash comes on once in awhile while driving in a 98 Stratus. Have no idea where the battery is. Should I replace battery?
The light you speak of is actually indicating an issue with the charging system and is usually an indicator of a faulty alternator.
However if your light flashes and doesn't remain lit it could be a sign of a bad connection in the charging system. If it only flashes once in a while you are better off to wait until it remains lit for a while. Simply because electrical diagnosis is very time consuming and the mechanic can spend hours looking and still not find a clear cause for your issue. And these wasted hours can cost you BIG.
But keep in mind that when that light is lit your battery is not receiving a charge and will go dead and could leave you stranded. So don't stray too far from home until you can get this issue resolved
hope this helps! and thanks for choosing FIX YA!
