Battery light problem; want to know if I can still drive with it on

I have a 2002 Ford F150 and the battery light has come on while driving on my way home to Atlanta from Birmingham. What does this mean? Can I make it from Birmingham to Atlanta with the light on? What should I do? Thanks!

Normally what this means is that your charging system is having a problem keeping your battery charged. If your alternator is faulty then you won't make it to Atlanta (no way to keep your battery charged).

Get to an auto parts store like Checker or Napa or equivalent and have your alternator checked for free!!!!

The alternator is not charging. Don't drive that far with the light on. You won't make it.

2008 f150 4x4 2008 crew cab.truck makes clicking sound when trying to start.wont roll over.don,t know if its battery or starter problem


I would try the battery first. I have a 2004 F150 that really discharges the battery fast if I don't drive it for a week or two. I ended up replacing the battery and then putting a trickle charger / battery maintainer on it.

Good luck.

2002 Ford Excursion battery light come on intermittently


Remove power to all aftermarket components, if you know how to use a multi-meter connect to power source inside vehicle.. Drive normal, if voltage drops below 12v while driving, it is faulty alternator. If bat light comes on and voltage is above 12v the plug on the alternator might be correded and throwing faulty light, or bad ground in gauge cluster...

if it is not running on all cylinders you need to check the coil packs and if your battery is not good this will not produce the electrcal output to really check you car out
