Question about 1995 Suzuki Swift
Hi I am Vortash the battery light is an indicator to if the Alternator is charging or not .. if the light is on it is saying that it isn't , check the plug and wire connections to the alternator check your earth strap from your negative side of the battery to earth or if it is a continental positive earth car check the + side is attched to the earth securely and cleanly .. check the output from the alternator you should be gettinfg approx 13.5 to 14 .5 volts DC if not switch to ac if you get a reading the rectifier has gone and will need replacing ..( most of the modern alternators come with new brushes attached to a rectifier as a single module ) Check the fan belt tension slipping belt can cause bad charge rate and bring the light on .if you are finding the car is becoming difficult to start the battery going low the fault is realy dead to rights a charging fault.. Hope this helps Vortash
