Battery likely not holding strenght, light will stay on as a reminder of the problem, disconnect the negative cable of the battery for 5 minutes and reconnect it, this reset the error codes ( that is what the light is, an error code), good luck

Car started engine light on noticed gearbox slipping thn it cut out n whn i try and start it makes a clicking sound will it be the starter motor? And trans oil low


Could be the alternator. If the alternator is bad, you run the car off battery power, which drains. When it gets to a low point, many different things in the drive train can happen. To include the transmission slip. The starter clicks because the battery is low.. Not being charged up by the alternator.

Won't start All the lights and electronics are working in the car. When I turn the key, nothing happens; won't turn over.


neutral or park switch maybe need to check starter wire from ignition switch to starter see if you are getting power to starter
quick way to do it is headlight s on turn key if lights dim then the power is going to starter
check starter good luck

If the battery is not recharging while the car is running, bad connection between alternator and battery. If it is dying while sitting, but charging while running, something is draining it. What? Who knows. It could be anything from a clock on the radio to an engine fan that doesn't stop. Look for anything electrical that is on when the car isn't. ANYTHING. Even the smallest light can pull more juice than you'd expect. Good luck.

Your alternator should power everything when engine is running. Battery is only for start up. Test voltage with a multimeter when engine is running , should be 14V or more . Any less indicates low alternator output.

This is a Direct result of a Bad Alternator. You can Run on what is left in the Battery for a Little while and if it sits for a While the Battery will retain enough Power to Start. You may need a New Battery in Addition.
