2012 Grand Caravan. How do I turn the battery light off after installing a new battery?


Test the alternator. The battery light is for the charging system. Once the charging system is working with the engine running, the light should go off. If your light stays on with engine running, the alternator may need service or replacement.

To test the charging system, just put a voltmeter on the battery with engine running. The voltmeter should register at least 13.5 volts- alternator is charging. If you only show battery voltage with engine running, like 12.2-12.8 volts, the alternator or charging system is not working. The battery light should be on to signify this.

Battery charging system light is on but system is charging


have the alternator bench tested as it may have a faulty rectifier pack in it
charge lights basically work by when not running the current flows from the battery to the alternator through the light
when the alternator starts to charge it puts a reverse current back through the light in opposition to the battery and so the light goes out
if the light stays on then that means that the current from the alternator is alternating and the battery is keeping it on.

How do I replace my alternator in my 2005 GMC truck


It is more than likely an alternator problem. Charge the battery and drive to an auto parts store, and they can check the alternator on the vehicle for free.

What causes the charging system go from charging then stops then charges again


To test a battery use a load tester. The problem may be a cell bridge failure . Check for tight clean terminals and tight wires on the alternator.

My battery light comes on and goes off while im driving


The battery light is coming on due to either a defective Alternator voltage regulator Diode (built into the alternator) or to a wiring connector problem at the Alternator. When the charging system voltage drops below the battery voltage the battery warning light will come on, this is not a Battery problem as many think, it is a charging system issue as stated above, the main component of the charging system is the Alternator..

Battery not charging. had charging system tested. all okay except alternator. removed alternator and had tested. replaced alternator. system still not charging.


Check the connections and the fusible link. A fusible link is an inline fuse in the wiring. You will need a multimeter to test and troubleshoot. Check that when the ignition is on, that you are getting 12 volts to the lead to the alternator. The ignition switch controls turning on the charging system.

Good luck, jim

CHARGING LIGHT STAYING ON AND ALTERNATOR CHARGING TO 18 VOLTS OFF AND ON


The light will come on if the system is over charging. No system I know of charges at 18 volts. That is way too much. You need to have the alternator checked out. Most system charge at 14.5 to 15 volts at the most. You will burn out something major if not fixed. you can go by most auto part stores and they will check it out for free.
