You must have a slip speed on you belt. Tighten it. You may need to purchase an alternator that can handle more current or watts.

Could be a number of things. A common problem is the O2 sensors. Shoot down to your local Autozone or Pep Boys and have them pull eror codes out of the system. That will tell you where to start looking

Your battery may be weak, or becoming dead celled!! Replace it with a new one and if the problem persists, replace the alternator!

I need to bypass my heater coil as my aircon is leaking 2003 kia pregio any photos?

Im not quite sure what bypassing heater coil has to do with aircon leak, unless you mean there's coolant leaking from under dash, if coolant is leaking, remove hoses at firewall and follow them back to engine, you can use one of them to bridge from one to the other. Or put a connector between the hoses

Battery keeps going dead

There is a charging design defect on Hyundai vehicles. Replace the alternator immediately as this defect may occur below 30,000 km of travel. Avoid using the USB charger while aircon, head lights, and radio are ON because the alternator ampere rating will get overloaded, and power will be drawn from the battery.

Engine dies when a/c is on

hi sounds like you have a charging fault when you switch the aircon on as it uses 30% more power to run the aircon so if your charging system is faulty it will struggle to keep charged, you need to check your charging out put when running it it should be charging at around 14.3v .if it not then the problem will more that likely be alternator.

Battery light is on intermittently. Battery is new.

If your vehicle has done over 120,000km then the alternator will need to be reconditioned shortly. The battery light coming on is an indicator that your alternator is not charging properly.
So you should get your vehicle to a good auto-electrician asap before your battery starts to go flat.

Alternator light on all the time

The light tells you that the alternator valotage is too low. It should be a little higher (14 - 18) than the battery voltage 12-14.The alternator has worn brushes. Replace them or swap for a reconditioned alternator ($80-120)

1989 Chev PU , Aircon Dead , Want to Convert

Anyone can convert R12 to R134. It is as simple as screwing the two adapters on the low side and high side charging ports. Now to charge it you need to evacuate it as you said and then charge the system with R134. The hardest part is finding the way to evacuate and then recharge the system without going to a repair facility.
