I have a 2002 mustang and it is making a squeaking noise and the battery light comes on. Both happen intermittently but I haven't had any change in the battery gauge. Do I need a new alternator?


the sound is either the alternator belt (as in way too loose), or bad bearings in the alternator and it seizes up intermittently and the belt screeches as it slides on the pulley. your gauge is telling you the amount of voltage at the battery, but the light is a charge indicator and it is pointing you to the alternator.

Battery light and abs light on hard to steer overheating


sounds like you either lost your fan belt, or you have a seized up alternator, or belt tensioner. The fan belt [ drive belt ] turns the alternator to charge the battery, the power steering pump to make easy steering , and the water pump cooling your engine. Do you smell rubber burning? hear a squealing noise? or rattling noise. Open your engine bonnet, start the car up, and look at the drive belt and pulleys. They should all be turning. If this is the problem you will see something seized up. Also if you have let the power steering pump run out of oil, it may also be seized. Good luck with it

Car make a grinding noise like the belts are draging and squeing and a ckicking noise in dash that make the dash board lights blink and car acts like it want to cut off.


Lots of possibilities.
But the way to check belt noise is to remove it and spin all the bearings by hand.
This includes the alternator, waterpump, idler, and perhaps the power steering or even AC.
Then also make sure the tension is correct when you put it back on.
If the alternator is not being turned correctly, you will run off the battery until it dies.

The battery light went on but the battery is less than 2 year old and now the power steering fluid light is on..the steering wheel made a noise when i turned it.


check belt may be worn or loose -check power steering fluid level if low will cause binding and can cause belt to slip if alternator going bad can cause same or idler[tension] pulley going can cause slippage but most likely belt is worn and needs replacement

Car was making a whirring noise and got louder and then noise stopped, warning light said check charge system. When car was put in reverse the steering wheel would not turn.


Hi there.
I think the power steering pump gave up. The fan belt possibly stopped because of the pump and then the system shows no charge to the battery
"check charge system" makes then sense to me.

The battery light and brake light and engine noise on my 2003 Nissan Altima.


Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

When those 2 lights come on, it's normally a alternator not charging properly. I would have it checked to verify.

Thanks Jay!
