Question about 1988 Dodge Raider

1 Answer

A/T, Battery light stay on in 1988 Dodge Raider

Was driving the car on a 5- hour trip after it had been sitting for a month, and had to be jumped to start. At near the end of the trip, the A/T, Battery, and Brake lights all came on. Shortly after that, the turn signals and radio stopped working. Stopped car for hour, car had to be jumped again to start. Advance Auto said cell in battery dead, so we bought new battery. Car is running better, but all lights are still on. All fluids are fine, and car is NOT hot - lights come on upon starting car, even if it has been sitting for a couple of hours or days. Does something need to be reset?!

    Thanks for the suggestions. Will check on those, but another _ new or used - car is NOT an option at this time.

2001 Camry Often Won't Start When Hot Outside Unless Jumped


well is the battery draining over the time its sitting?
could be a bad battery or alternator, and/or you might have something on the car constantly draining power from the battery.
best to have it looked at by a mechanic.

I suspect a weak battery, but how do I know it's not a bad ALT?


when your car is running disconnect the positive cord from the battery. if the car stays on, than it is your alternator, if not its your battery. also if the car stays on, the head lights go dim if the alternator is malfunctioning
