Let me start out by explaining how the light works. The light is positioned in the wiring between the battery and the alternator. It indicates a flow in electricity. If the alternator quits charging electricity will flow from the battery to the alternator and the light will indicate the flow. If the battery is bad electricity will flow from the alternator to the battery and the light will light up. the first thing I do is clean the cables on the battery. Then I start the truck. While the truck is running disconnect one of the battery cables from the battery. If the truck shuts off the alternator is not charging. If the truck runs with the battery disconnected the battery is the problem.

Battery not charging car is dead and will not start


Starting with the battery light, the warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. It could be a faulty alternator, or a problem with the wiring between the battery and the alternator.
Normally you can drive a vehicle for several miles on the battery alone.
If you have charged the battery and it checks out ok, you would need to check the wiring from the battery to the alternator and to the fuse box for problems.

2003 kia optima battery light came on and headlights went dim and then out but high beams still work, dash lights are dim and the car still runs.


The alternator has stopped charging for some reason.
First check alternator drive belt is ok;
Check dash 'battery' (or 'ALT') light illuminates when ignition on and motor not running- if not, check 'ALT' lamp is not blown and connections to alternator are ok;
If all above ok, the alternator may be faulty.
