The light tells you the alternator is not working. If it does NOT light, that suggest the alternator is working. This sounds like a discharge problem, not a charging problem. If so, it is not a DIY for you.

Battery won't stay charged


1. the car drain's the battery even when it is not started or the key isn't in ignicion, the car has a electrical problem, you left a light, the starter could drain it, the alternator as well, or a bad radio is draining the battery even with no key in the ignicion,
2 it's a bad battery (discharges it self by beeing counicated inside).

solucion 1. to see if the car is drainin the battery would be by disconecting a battery termina and see if discharges again, if not, then the car drain's the battery.

solucion 2. if the battery discharges even when if it's disconected from the car, then change the battery.

warning, the first cause coul'd induce to a self discharging battery. even if you changed the battery, do a litle monitoring to be sure it's not the car that is turning the battery bad. how? if you install a new battery, leave the car for a few days (i mean do not start the car) and see if the battery discharges, if so, then you have to search what is draining the battery (that could be a very costly work, time and money and complicated). or put a ''battery disconector'' so the car cannot discharge the battery.

Resolving battery dying out and discharge light dosen't come on?


Discharge light will actually only come on when the alternator is not putting out its normal 13.5 - 14.5 volts. Sounds to me your alternator is fine, your battery has some dead cells, and will go dead soon as you shut off your engine. Battery is not accepting the charge the alt. is giving it. New battery is needed.

Car wont start but the lights, radio and everything battery operated comes on but it just makes a click noise when trying to start engine


If you can hear a click (quite loud) from the engine compartment, but the starter won't crank, this also could be caused by discharged battery. Battery problems - Discharged or dead battery is one of the possible reasons for a car not to start. Very common is the situation when we forget to turn the lights off overnight (the dome light, for example), which causes the battery to drain. In this case when attempting to start a car, all you will probably hear will be a clicking noise - there won't be enough power to turn the starter. Here is the simple way to check if the battery is discharged: Turn the ignition on. With the engine off, turn the windshield wipers on. If they move way too slow, much slower than usual, the battery is probably discharged. Also look at the dashboard lights - if they appear very dim, the battery is probably discharged.
If the battery is relatively new, it can be recharged. All you need to do is to boost your car and let the engine run for a while to charge the battery.

However if your battery is more than three-four years old, you will probably need to buy a new one. Sometimes, an old battery may even die with no apparent reason, even if the day before it was OK.

If the battery is OK, the starter solenoid, starter cables or the starter motor itself could be a problem.
