1999 3.2l. Why are battery and brake lights on?


was not on before the new alt,? is alt new or used.?
or came on only after the new ALT?????????
my guess, is 2 failures.! (one ignored and 2nd grew)
on with engine running, guess yes.
Good question and is same answer on all cars.
1: engine rpm too low, what is yours (below 80 rpm)
2: fan belt slips. bad tension pulley (weak and old???)
3: Alt bad, or its wires bad.
4: brake level low, (@MC) or hand brake switch stuck on, or other brake failures. a plenty, scan the PCM and ABS if you have ABS.
id not drive it with the brake lamp on (Savvy?)
the battery light is really the ALT charge lamp.
it glows anytime the Charge system can not charge the battery
if you drive far like that, the engine will stall and not crank.

5: the horn fuse power the alternator, so check the horn fuse
10amp , key on, 12vdc on both sides of fuse is needed/
fyi: the meter fuse runs the charge lamp, if said lamp is dead bingo.
6: fact 2, the PCM does NOT run the Alternator on the 3.2L .
7: alternator case not grounded right.
8: battery is bad, causing alternator to drop off line
9: battery cables bad, at the 4ends or they are bad.
10: the plug on the rear of alt is bad or its wires or pins rusty.


brakes:
the brake lamp has 3 inputs ("OR" logic) master cylinder level low.
the hand brake lever and the EBCM (electronic brake control module)
a technician unplugs each to see what causes the error.
if you unplug mC wire and hand brake wire
then the EBCM is UNHAPPY, scan it.

1998 expedition yesturday was low on fuel got gas drove with headlights on got 4 miles down road vehicle died thought was bad gas 3hrs later vehicle would run but abs light and brake light would flash


There is a problem in the electrics of the vehicle. First place to start is to check the alternator drive belt for condition and tension. Next place is the battery terminals and condition and tension . Third place is to have a load test done on the battery as it may have an internal short and drawing all the current from the alternator. In effect when you add power requirements ( park lights then brake lights then headlights) you are actually using more current than the alternator can supply to keep the engine system running.

CHECK ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT COULD BE LOOSE NEED ADJUSTING OR GLAZED NEED REPLACING. IF ALL IS GOOD, CHECK ALTERNATOR VOLTAGE OUT PUT AT BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR FAULTY BUT CHECK ALTERNATOR BATTERY FEED AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRES FOR LOOSE CONNECTION OR DAMAGED FRAYED WIRES. CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE.CHECK THOSE THINGS BEFORE BUYING NEW ALTERNATOR.FIRST TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE DISCONNECTING BATTERY CABLE TO KEEP FROM LOCKING OUT RADIO.

Battery and brake light came on ,on my hydia elantra whats wrong


for the battery light, test the alternator. If you have a voltmeter, check voltage at the battery with engine running. Voltage should be at least 14 volts. If you don't have a voltmeter, take the alternator off and take it to the parts store for testing.

for the brake light--may be caused by the alternator problem, but at least check the brake fluid reservoir. If it's low, refill and check the car for leaks at the wheels or below the reservoir/master cylinder.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

My 1995 Nissan Pathfinder overheated and the battery & brake light are now on. How do I remove the thermostat to check if it works?


If the battery and brake lights are on it means the alternator isn't charging the battery. Check to see if the belt to the alternator broke, that belt runs the water pump also.

I have a brand new battery in my 2000 Honda Civic & the car will not start now. The battery was installed 2 days ago & the car started just fine & ran fine, but then I didn't drive it for 2...


Check the function of the alternator. Charge the battery with a battery charger or jump start the engine. While the engine is running use a voltmeter to check the voltage at the battery posts. Red to + and black to -. You should have between 13.5 − 16 volts. If you do not the alternator is bad or the drive belt is loose. If the alternator checks ok then something is on that is drawing power from the battery and running it down. Check under hood, trunk, glove box, and interior lights. Can also be a brake light switch causing the brake lights to stay on. In rare cases it can also be a stuck relay such as a power window relay. From you description I think you will find the alternator is ok and your problem is something is on and running the battery down.

1998 nissan altima break fluid and battery lite keeps coming on. also hear a belt slipping noise in the engine. only has 42,000 miles


possibly separate issues...there is a float in the brake reservoir that will detect low fluid..low fluid is usually a sign of wearing brake pads as the fluid displaces this wear and lowers the level in the reservoir. A slipping belt will cause battery charging issues as the alternators slips too much and wont chrage sufficiently.run charging system diagnostic and ensure all belts/tensioners and alternator to be performing correctly...good luck
