My 2009 Chevy Malibu just had a new battery put in within the last 60 days. Then I needed a new transmission. Got it fixed. Today my battery light comes on and stays on. What is this?

The light means that your battery is not being charged properly. It could be that when the transmission was replaced, they alternator belt was not put in properly or tight enough. I'd do the following:
1. Check battery connections to make sure they are clean and tight.
2. Check the drive belt to the alternator. It should be tight and not slipping.
3. If neither of the above is the problem, fully charge the battery with a battery charger so you can drive it for a while. Don't drive it without charging or you may get stranded. Don't let the battery run all the way down either or it may ruin it.
3. Check alternator output by driving to a nearby auto store or the place you had it repaired. They usually can check your charging system for free. The alternator could have decided to malfunction, although it's pretty new.
Good luck...

Hi, my alternator is not charging the battery, I have a 2009 Kia Carnival. The belt operating the alternator is not broken. My battery is completely drained (flat). When I turn ignition on, all lights

I would be getting the alternator checked out first, faulty relays are not something I have had problems with in the past, so I would go with the alternator, unless your battery is duff, don't forget a battery can be fine the last time you use the car and then it just goes dead. I would suggest you try a charged battery first and check when the engine is running that the ignition lights are all out, if not then change the alternator

Battery won't keep charge

sounds to me you have a faulty power steering unit, if it blown the fuse you must have electric power steering. I suspect your power steering is draining the battery. (internal short in power steering unit) If your battery won't hold or take a charge, replace it. check your alternator as well as that charges the battery.

My Honda 2009 2.0LX2009 model has charging system indicator light flashing. I have changed the battery and alternator but the problem persists

I'm not understanding what you are saying.
The battery should have a rating of at least 500 amps or more.
That is the cranking amps at zero degrees which has nothing to do with the warning light.
The light comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery. So if the light is on something is keeping the alternator from charging, or from the extra voltage from reaching the battery.
You would need to have the charging system tested by a shop with the necessary equipment. And probably not by the shop you are using now.

What can i do if the elctricity is less than the recommended level in gmc acadia 2009?

Are you talking about low battery voltage, or low charging voltage?

If the charging voltage is around 14v, then the alternator is fine. If around 12.5, then replace.
If the battery voltage at rest is less than 12.5, then replace the battery.

Pt cruiser 2009 wont stay charged. what is the problem?

Sounds like a bad alternator and or voltage regulator. It's easier just to replace both. You could take to a auto parts house. Many times they have a tester that can tell you exactly what the problem is.

My 2009 Chevy Aveo Ran Outta Gas And Battery Died After Sitting For A Few Hours. We Charged Battery, Interior Lights & Head Lights Come On, But Still Cannot Get The Car To Turn Over To Start. Help

Have you considered the alternator and battery? When the alternator isn't working, it wont charge the battery and supply proper amperage to the ecu, starter, coils etc which then the vehicle will not start, or if it does start it will not run proper. Try taking the alternator out and taking it to a local autozone for them to check it. Then you will determine the faulty equipment to replace.
