Check all grounds running from all electrical, If there is not a good contact this problem will occur, when you locate the ground surface take sandpaper or even a knife and scrape or sand the connector and the ground surface then reconnect it, It should return to normal if not then it could be a solenoid possibly but not sure

SOURCE: Charging Light On After Replacing Alternator/Battery1999Windstar

Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.

To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.

How long did the 2nd alt. last before it died? The voltage regulator is, I believe, attached to the alternator. Have u had the voltage regulator checked?

On the terminal maked"l" you need to put switched power from the ignition[ the problem], will go away.If this is not an option then you can get an alternator repair shop to put a self exciting regulater and it will kick in with a quick rev of the engine,no wireing required

Tip

Charging system,late model Chrysler vehicles


2000 year and newer chrysler products put the voltage regulator in the PCM. If the regulator fails the replacement ECM is about 800.00<br /> An earlier ,say 1987,electronic firewall mounted regulator( 2wire) can be simply wired in for about 20 bucks.<br /> One alternator fld terminal to the new regulator,the other fld lead to the center terminal of the regulator ,this fld wire must also be tied into ign.+<br /> Be sure not to apply ign. voltage to the right side terminal or you will fry the regulator.

WHY DOES MY 1997 DODGE STRATUS STALLS


if the battery light is on you still have a fault in the charging system, you need to test your alternator,with the car running to ensure its charging 14v, and id charge the battry up manually to see if it's holding a charge.
you could have a broken wire problem, this could prevent the car from charging, but id test both thos eitem to make sure they work first.

My battery light just came on, so does that mean the battery is low? Or do I have to fix/replace the electrical system/battery cables?


you need to have the charging system checked to see if it is charging properly,it could be charging below the minimum voltage required to keep the light off,you could have a charging system problem that needs to be fixed.

1997 olds 88 with 6 mo battery, have had problems with heavy corrosion and the last 2 months sometimes will need to jump to start then after driven will start again - how do i tell if this is a bad...


I would have the battery tested and also have the charging system in the car tested. It does sound like the battery isn't holding a charge, but I would make sure the alternator is charging properly.
