Question about Cars & Trucks
My 2006 HHR just recently has been having battery icon and DIC alert for check charging system. I went to Auto Zone and they put tester on battery and everything checked out OK but light and alert still keeps coming on. Any Idea Why this is happening and how it can be fixed?
Did they check the alternator too ? The warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery.

After searching around, I found several posts that suggested reseating all the relays and fuses under the hood. After checking, I noticed nearly all of them were not seated well. I pushed them all down and I haven't had the problem since.

if charging light is on w/ engine running,the fault could be the alternator or another component of the charging system.remove, clean and tighten battery post connections to check for alternator output,use a volt meter or multi-tester set to 50 Volts DC,w/ tester on battery terminals it should read 12 volts W/ engine off;13 to 14 volts w/engine running.if voltage increases when alternator is spinning,suspect battery
