What makes voltage light and fuel light come on and stay on. On my 1995 mazda 929

Hi,if you are talking about the red light for the alternater is on then it means that the car is not charging,and the fuel light is to do with the sender unit in the fuel tank.
to see if the alternater is working ok you need to put a mullty metre on the battery and see what the voltidge is,get some one to press the frotal pedal you should see the reading jump up from 12v to about 14v approx,if the valtidge drops bellow 12v or dose not increase then the alternater is falty replace,
then to check that the fuel sender is working find the wires on the fuel tank take off and join together switch on ignition if the fuel diyal dose not go to full then replace the gauge if it dose go to full replace sender.
hope this was some help,all the best.

I have a problem with fuel shortage or Lowe voltage. coast to lite excel oration.

driving , or parked, engine on or off. (sure key on)
please post full clear symptoms.
post all the car does good and bad.
parked, idling and driving.

my guess is, you were driving, then looked at the cluster
  1. and the fuel level dropped fast. (power loss 12vdc that is)
  2. and the voltage gauge, dropped,(well it didnt lie , it did drop)
  3. this means the battery charge is too low, and falling.
  4. the battery is bad. or
  5. the charge system( I never said to replace a part) is bad.
  6. or the battery lugs are rusty. clean them.
battery is 12.6vdc rested, engine off
battery volts running is 13.3 to 15vdc, , if not charge system is upset or battery so bad the charge system shuts down.

2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee jerks hard then the rpms go high then almost to zero

which engine?
sounds to me like you need to watch the dash voltmeter
if it reads zero , running the PCM , and spark all die
as does engine stall.. so that is first. Voltage.
if the gauge is missing like on some cars, (sad) add one
or connect any voltmeter to the CIG lighter socket (aka. power port today)
or go to any auto store and buy the cheap tool that fits there.
called a battery/alt tester (some have LEDs that shift to good , bad)
a real voltmeter works better showing real volts.
When and engine dies. the PCM sees this, and tries everything
in its power to stop that, (fuel and air supplies)
but failed. as the PCM falls below the 300 RPM it knows it lost the battle and then goes to boot up self tests. with the CEL glowing
if it fails to show the CEL, (stalled) that means in all cases...
the PCM lost power.
lost DC power distribution. for many a reason.

from loose or bad fuses, or bad ignitions switch or as per above
filthy battery lugs.
how i fix these, (sure it must fail to fix it....... or go broke guessing)
  1. i drive with the voltmeter connected full time. per above.
  2. I say it drop. to 0v driving. oops. that is bad.
  3. I then move the red test lead (black is on body ground)
  4. I move it forward in the path of power distributution, that means to the fuse box in cab that runs ECU power.
  5. I then see if the power is lost before that fuse or after.
  6. i before i work to the engine bay main fuse box. PDC.
  7. I then find the point power does not drop
  8. the failure IS between those 2 points,!!!

I have a 1993 F150 4.9 2 wheel drive, my charging system as not working. I have replaced the alternator and the system will not charge .The voltage goes up and down and when it drops it pegs my gauges to...

You have two fuseable links - one for the main battery circuit and the other for the voltage regulator which includes the stator.
The third wire goes to the gauge or warning light which "turns on" the alternator once it is running.
Does the gauge or warning light work, and have you tested the output of the alternator on the engine ?

Car wont start...clicking noise

well running the voltage from alternator should be at least 14 volts or a bit higher, engine off it should read at least 13 volts at battery. if alternater is less then 14 volts, it is the alternator at fault. or a loose alt, belt.

Dies while driving

First off, add a new ground wire from the engine to the body just for the hell of it. Now clean all the battery cable connetors aat all point and add WD40 afterwards. Also check connectors from dash panel to engine circuits. This is real suspect. WD 40 them also

Voltage irregularity

Well that's ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE, the voltage regulator is in the ALTERNATOR. This vehicle needs an alternator and that should take care of this problem. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
