    Battery is fine but discharging. Impossible to unplug connector while engine is running.To get to the altenator you must remove air filer tube that is bolted to radiator chassie.Then loosen belt and push altenator down to get to connector.

When the lights are on check the battery voltage. Should be 13.0 to 14.5. If you unplug the connector on the alternator when the lights are on, do they go off?

    Can you take the vehicle to a parts store and have the alternator checked?

My dashboard lights (battery emergency brake light & air bags) are flashing on my dashboard while driving but go out when I come to a stop on my 2001 santa fe


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

I have a 1992 Toyota corolla for about a day the brake and battery lights stayed on while driving and then I stopped at a red light and it died. When I go to start it nothing happens


when brake lights stayed on surely you have a brake light switch faulty.- It is above Brake Lights Pedal.
If you have battery light on either the alternator belt is off or the alternator is faulty does not charging.

The issue may be the alternator is going out.If an Autozone or Advanced auto is in your area usually they will test these for you at no charge. Would have the system tested multiple times because it may pass once then fail the next. If it repeatedly still passes. There may be an wiring problem at the pigtail plug of the alternator.

Brake light stays on. Fluid ok.


First disconnect the battery for one minute and reconnect it. This may reset the light. If not check the fluid level sensor. If it is OK the indication would be the master cylinder has a problem. As always any brake problem should be addressed quickly.

Brake and battery lights stay on


when both lights stay on with the car running it usually indicates an alternator that is not charging at an acceptable voltage level. check the battery voltage with the car running, if it is under 13.5V you should replace your alternator.

Warning lights stay on


Hi,

Brake light warning indicates possible low brake fluid in the reservoir;

Charge warning light indicates battery not charging which can be caused by defective alternator/regulator, slipping belt, corroded fusible link from alternator to battery B+ terminal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
