I think this is something only a dealership or well qualified shop should look at. The voltage gauge shows a tad high. That might be significant, or not. Some on-board diagnostics might be called for, especially so if the engine computer tripped the light on. You don't want to feed them fellas too many oats!

SOURCE: battery - alternator

The best thing to do is first check all the fuses, I think there is second fuse box under the hood, look in the owners manual, also check for any shorted wiring where the radio was. If all this appears ok go to Kragen auto, Auto Zone etc and they will test the alt for free, please note that some Japanese charging systems require a good battery to work, so pulling the battery cable off may not be a valid test on this import.

SOURCE: I have a 99 windstar. I replaced battery and

With the battery light on and at 14 volts I would suspect that the diode trio is going out and over charging the battery, first check that the battery has fluid in it all the way if it does then have it load tested at a battery shop like all state or sears or any parts store can do a load test for you. Just because it's putting out 14 volts does not mean it's putting out enough amperage, the light is giving you fair warning of an impending problem, have it checked at AutoZone or shucks it does not cost nothing and they can test the alternator output as well.

Turn the key on and disconnect the small connector on the alternator. If the battery light goes out, the alt is bad.

05 outback R charging system issue

Are you sure the battery is good? It may not be holding a charge for long if the electroyte is low or weak. How old is the battery? If more than three years, it's worth replacing it. If you still have the problem, then you probably have a "parasitic: loss" in your electrical system. Some accessory or short is draining the battery faster than the alternator can keep it charged. Unless you're good at electrical stuff, have a service manual and a volt-ohm meter, get a mechanic to check for that.

The "service charging system" message


" service charging system ", means you have an issue with your battery, your alternator, or
your voltage regulator. Something is causing your battery not to charge properly. You should
have it checked as soon as possible. This could keep your vehicle from starting next time.

I hope this helps you.

My battery light keeps coming on... We bought it and they said they fixed the alternator but the light keeps coming on, but always starts!

I would suggest having the charging system/battery checked at a local auto parts store. Most of them will provide this service at no charge. Based on the information you gather from that will determine whether you head back to the dealer for repair or not.

My check charging system light keeps coming on. I replaced the alternator about 2 years ago, and the battery about 10 months ago. Trying to figure out the possible problem before taking it to a shop.

Check the voltage ot the battery when the light is on. Ity should be approx 13.6 volts. If its around 12 volts, the alternator isnt charging. BUT just beacause it isnt charging, doesnt mean its bad, wirng has to be verified good, and connection.

Check the alternator is not faulty.
The battery terminal voltage when engine is running should be approx 14.5V with headlights or venilation blower motor running.
The battery light indicator 'on' usually means the alternator is not charging.

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.
