SOURCE: "battery no charge" warning light comes on

Hello: The belt may be slipping, (check it for excessive grease/oil) or the alternator may have failed. A parts store can check the alternator nd they may not charge you.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.

Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

1998 corvette will not start says reduced power

If the security light is blinking it will not start. The security system needs to be reset. You will have to have a fully charged battery to reset the system. With a full charged battery turn the ignition forward until the warning lights come on and leave the key in the on position for 15min. Turn key off and wait 10sec. then try and start.You may have to perform this procedure a couple of times, however, it is usually successful the first try. The reduced power light can be set by a low voltage/poor charge battery

Why battery gauge needle drops and check gauges light comes on - system not charging

warn bushes in the alternator, when the alternator warms up the bushes will come away from the pole, in turn turns the power off, just means the bushes are so warn down they heat up and the springs shrink back in and when it cools down again the bushes are connecting again till it heats up again.

My 1988 chrysler new yorker is giving me a reading saying improper voltage what could be causing this? Ive tryd 2 different good batterys in it and i get a few miles down the road the battery light starts...

The warning light comes on if the alternator is not charging the battery. You can run for several miles on just battery voltage.
The alternator output would need to be checked when the warning light is on. Its very seldom a battery problem.

ABS malfunction warning light on Airbag malfunction warning message Battery not charging Message No power steering battery totally flat

This time of year alot of batteries fail because of the cold but a bad battery will not turn on the charging light. This usually only occurs when the alternator isnt charging. When the battery drains enough its possible thats why you have these other issues.
Codes only set when the computer does not see the correct voltages

2004 jeep grand cherokee will not start, dash light blink , gauges move back and forth. Battery seem to be ok.

It takes very little voltage and amperage to operate dash gauges. You cannot rely on "seems" when it comes to the battery. A good battery should have standing voltage of at least 12v and be able to "snap back" from a fifteen second 200 amp load. Under load, the voltage should not drop lower than 9.5 volts. Have the battery charged and load tested before going anywhere else with this. then make sure connections are clean and tight. After you get it started, if battery was good, check starter draw and charging system operation. If it does not start, check power flow from key through neutral safety switch and starter relay to starter.
