Brake light& battery light keeps coming on now car won't start

Anytime the battery light on the dash comes on is an indicator of the alternator not charging, resulting in a dead battery. Low voltage will cause other warning lights to come on as well. Replace the alternator and fully charge the battery before running the engine, to avoid full field condition with the new alternator ( overheating).

My battery light has been coming on and off for a couple of weeks now and saying "Service Battery Charging System".

Have your charging system tested. The battery light is turned on when there is a charging system problem causing an over/under charge condition. You may possibly have an alternator problem. If the battery is not being charged properly, the computer will start shutting down electrical components for protection and to keep enough voltage supply to enable the vehicle to continue running

Draining the volts form my battery. Not sure what is causing this? I keep charging the batt. but when driven short distances, Battery not charging light keeps coming on ?

Hi, if the battery charging light keeps coming on and the battery is draining it almost certainly means that your alternator needs attention. It may be that the alternator belt is loose or is slipping or theremay be a fault with the alternator itself. A local garage should be able to help you rectify the issue quickly
Good Luck

Car won't start- makes a ticking sound when turn key- radio keeps coming back on after turning it off

It would appear that you have a low battery. You may need a jump start to get going. I would have the battery replaced and make sure your charging is working. When you get it jump started and it is running, check for a red battery light on your dash. If you don't see one, your charging system is OK and you just have a tired battery that needs to be replaced. You can also go through your display choices to the vehicle voltage reading. Make sure you have atlease 13.8 volts.

Hope this helps.

Why does the battery light keep coming on after

The battery light indicates insufficient voltage. I would recheck all the battery connections to be sure they are clean and tight. I would also have the alternator output tested, since the light will come on if the alternator is not providing sufficient voltage to keep the battery charged. Take the vehicle to an autoparts store and they will test the battery condition and alternator output for free. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped, Best wishes.
