Question about 1993 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

The alternator belt on my 1993 toyota tercel break loose.

I was able to drive the car home but I had the battery and brake light indication turned on. My question is, if I will be able to drive it to the repair shop with the engine not quitting. I'm also concerned about the brake light indication. Does that mean the brakes might not work? I appreciate very much for a response.

Hi there,

The Battery and brake light indication means there is some wrong with BRAKE.
First get it repair before you drive it, also check the Break oil level.

Post further comment for more help.

Not sure why the brake light came on unless it is warning of the lack of ABS but it can be a failed alternator causing the overnight discharge. Alternators have semiconductor diode in them and when one fails, it can easily drain the battery within hours.
If you can get it moving, drive to one of the chain auto parts stores; they will check your alternator and battery while in the vehicle.

Warning lights stay on


Hi,

Brake light warning indicates possible low brake fluid in the reservoir;

Charge warning light indicates battery not charging which can be caused by defective alternator/regulator, slipping belt, corroded fusible link from alternator to battery B+ terminal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
