Have the alternator checked. Also check all wires/cables, including ground cable from battery to engine.

Hi again just got a new battery, battery light is still on car is starting, but now whats the problem


The BATTERY light indicates that your battery is not getting charged. There could be several reasons for this most probably your alternator, which generates the current to charge the battery when the engine is running. If the new battery is not getting charged, it will eventually drain not start your car. To confirm that the battery is not getting charged and that is the reason for the BATTERY light, put a volt meter across the battery while the engine is running. It should read around 13 volts indicating that current is flowing into the battery. If it reads 11 volts or less, that means the batter is being drained and not charged. Then have your alternator checked.G

In a 2002 Grand Caravan What dose the Battery looking dash light mean when it comes on and stays on? Has a new battery in it.


Hi there,

If the battery dash light remains on, it is a strong indication that you have a recharging issue. The new battery will only work if the alternator keeps it charged well. My suggestion would be to take your car to a mechanic and have your alternator tested.

Good luck.

Battery terminal gets extremely hot. just replaced alterantor and battery. battery indicator light also on.


Sounds like for one reason or another that alternator is putting out too much voltage to battery. Did mechanic check to see if new alternator was rated same or close to old one, as in amperage rating? Pulley on new alternator same size? You'll need to get it to another mechanic who knows what he's doing, obviously that guy wasn't too concerned with curing your problem. That's why I was hoping you had a voltage reading when running.

Battery and brake indicator light stays on after start


When the lights are on check the battery voltage. Should be 13.0 to 14.5. If you unplug the connector on the alternator when the lights are on, do they go off?

Hi, Battery light coming on occassionally. Battery is new. Any ideas, could the alternator need new brushes or rectifier? Thanks


i think you are right...the alternator may need a new set of brushes. battery light coming on and off is an indication.

a busted rectifier would not indicate an on and off light but rather a steady on light. but it has 6 diodes and one busted diode would do the same. on and off battery light depending on the load present in the system.


tnx 4 using fixya,
