The battery light is not an indicator to replace the battery. It is an indicator to tell you that your alternator is not producing sufficient voltage to charge the battery. If you have a Delco alternator, you would be best advised to replace it. Those cars were notorious for bad Delco alternators.

Replace the alternator, and you should be fine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!

Yellow/Orange engine light on the dashboard what is the problem?T


Toyota Yaris engine warning light - this light will stay illuminated if there is a malfunction within the engine after start up - we would advise you to use the Toyota i905 iCarsoft kit to diagnose the engine problem, the kit will also clear the codes & reset the dashboard light. You might need to replace your MAF sensor because of this warning light, if so you should visit www.bavariandominator.co.uk for a replacement.

Headlights don't work why?


Test the headlight switch as follows.
  • Move your car to a dark area, such as waiting until night or moving to a dark garage, to test your headlight switch.
  • 2Turn on your car, so you can see your dashboard lights. Note whether some of your dashboard lights fail to illuminate.


    • 3
  • Turn on your car's headlights. Note whether your car's headlights illuminate.
  • 4Press the high beam lever to activate your high beams. Note whether your high beams activate.
  • 5Put your car in "Park." Move to the back of the car. Note whether your parking lights are illuminated.
  • 6View any remaining driving lights, such as lights above the license plate. Note whether these lights come on.
    If more than one set of lights does not activate when you turn on the lights, you may need to replace your headlight switch. If only one set of lights does not turn on, try replacing the lightbulbs in that set and then retesting your car. If the lights still do not illuminate, you may need to replace your headlight switch.

    I have a 1983 oldsmobile 98 and the dashboard lights wont turn off how can I turn them off so my battery wont die


    Is it the illumination lights? If so, that sounds like a bad headlight switch-when you put the park lights on (first click), it turns on the dash illumination lights.
    If it is warning lights or other lights on the dash, it could be a bad ignition switch.

    Brake and battery dashboard lights remain on with


    If the brake and battery light are illuminated then you should have your alternator tested. It is possible that your charging system is failing in some way. Make sure your belt is on the engine. If the belt is on then make sure it is in good condition and tight. Make sure battery terminals are tight. Have the charging system tested.
