If the Battery Light is on you have a fail at the Alternator. When cars had generators the Battery Light actually referred to the Battery but now that indicator demonstrates the Alternator is not doing what it is supposed to. Now given the narrow nature of the question there could be a few variables in this mix. Starting at the Alternator verify everything is in fact connected properly to the Alternator, follow that to the Battery, and then the external wiring such as Ground points etc. If the installation is correct than the Alternator has failed but it may not have failed completely and it is still providing some power. Test it for output and if it fails replace it.

It would be easier to tape over them, otherwise you are looking at removing the entire dashboard so you can remove your gauge cluster. I would rather fix the problem that is bringing the lights on in the first place.

Sounds like you need a new alternator. If you know how to take your alternator out (consult a chilton's), take it to autozone or a similar parts store and they usually have an alternator tester. If it is bad, buy one from them and get some money back for the core. If you can avoid taking it to the shop, do it, because they will way overcharge you and the alternator is easy to replace. Usually it is just a couple of cables, and a tensioner that you can loosen to take the belt off so that you can remove it.

I would check the alternator. Check the battery terminal connections to make sure they are tight. My immediate response remains to check the alternator.

Batery wont charge new alternater and batery the batery light does nont come on in the dash


Check the 30 amp alternator mini fuse (#26) in the engine compartment fuse box by the battery. By the way, if you don't have an owners manual, you can download on here: http://www.motorcraftservice.com/pubs/content/~WOVSAB/~MUS~LEN/40/97sabog1e.pdf

I got a new battery, its been in it for a month or so. Now its dead and when I jump it off it starts then I turn the headlights and it dies and the battery is dead again.


In computer controled cars the computer needs at least 10 volts to operate . If your car is not charging or not carging enough The voltage is low to start with when you boost it. Then you turn on the lights it drops the voltage more to where the computer can't opperate. The batery should be charged before you start it anyway because it is really hard on the altinater to recharge a dead batery. An altinater is only meant to keep a batery topped up , its not a cahrger.

It wont crank like not getting power


ok sounds like you have a dead battery
1) if turns but slowly:

posible causes:
1.1) old dead batery/
or underchaged battery >check altenator in this case

did you leave your headlights turnt on and drained the battery of its charge?if so get a jump start and then run the car for 30-45 mins to rechagre the battery

if you have at your disposal anothere batery that you know has a good charge
try starting your car with that batery(not using jumper cables) hook it up!
if the slugish turn over is still there

1.2) check your wire conections for corision this means completly disconecting 1 lead at a time (only on one end of that lead)and cleaning them with a wire brush or some sand paper.
(on the battery and the starter also the ground strap conection to the frame.)

2) WONT TURN OVER AT ALL:
posible causes:
2.0) dead battery >try charging it>get a jump start
2.1) blown turnkey igntion fuse
2.2) blow fuse for main har nes wires
2.3) bad starter
2.4) corosion on wire conection (most often the batery terminals)
2.5) starter replaced and hooked up incorectly.

2.6) alram system preventing the turnkey igntion system from getting power

Secruity light stays on the truck won't start


Did the batery die??? Did you have to boost??? could be one of two things the pcm or your key needs to be reprogrammed, for the key connect the batery to a batery charger with it still connected to the truck, leave the ignition on for about 10-15 minutes or until the security light goes out, when it does go out turn off the ignition and turn it back on for another 10-15 minutes repeat this another time and it should be ok, if not take it to GM to have them check the pcm or replace...

goodluck...
