1999 cavalier battery light coming on but has new battery
Today my car started making a bit of whirring noise, it was at a low pitch when driving slow, but as i sped up and changed gears (automatic transimission) the whirring got higher pitched, then it suddendly stopped whirring and a few minutes later my check battery light came on. The battery is new though, the car still drives perfectly fine, its starts and stops, no lights are dim, when i had a friend look at it, he unplugged a wire connected to the altinator then plugged it back in. when i started it the light didnt come on, but halfway driving home it came back on again, please tell me its just one of the relays that needs replacing and not the alinator itself cuz thats a HUGE difference in repair costs!!

Oct 2, 2013 - I recently had new fan belts installed after hearing a high-pitched, ... Do you hear the noise when the engine is running and the vehicle ... Just replaced water pump (and timing belt) yesterday and squeal ... When driving it make a noise but change out and caught speed the noise is coming from driver side.Missing: 1999 plymouth breeze
It could be that you have a front wheel bearing that is getting noisy. Have someone ride in the RF seat and listen to the noise to try to figure out which front wheel the noise is coming from.
Also , check the tread pattern of the front tires to see if it has some unusual choppy pattern forming.
My truck Hino dutro year 2005 is on check engine light, coputer say this fault, p2002 particulate trap efficiency below threshold (bank 1) now i dont know what is this fault Plz send me detail for this fault and solution.
Sounds like there is a blown piston, to be sure have a compression test done on that #2 cylinder, if the reading is low, then you'll know.
A friend of mine had a 95 that did simular things only a little more,
it started smoking, dash lights flickered, etc. Finally, he had to get rid of it, the piston rod went through the engine block.
check the alternator drive belt,it may be loose and squealing.
the alternator itself could be also making a noise.
start the car with the hood open and listen to it.
look if the belt is cracked,loose or wet from oil or water etc.
things like thermostat housings leaking coolant can cause something like that.
Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.
it sounds to me like it could be the alternator im afraid but the only real cheap way to tell is time. if you continue to drive this and keep a check on wether it still starts or lights dim, with it being a new battery it is going to take a while fot it to go flat. if it does then try not to drive it too much as this will break it and cost you even more.
