    You really need to work on writing sentences that make some sense. I suggest you charge the battery and have it load tested. If the car starts, have the charging system tested. If battery is OK and still engine dosen't turn, check starter operation.

2012 Grand Caravan. How do I turn the battery light off after installing a new battery?


Test the alternator. The battery light is for the charging system. Once the charging system is working with the engine running, the light should go off. If your light stays on with engine running, the alternator may need service or replacement.

To test the charging system, just put a voltmeter on the battery with engine running. The voltmeter should register at least 13.5 volts- alternator is charging. If you only show battery voltage with engine running, like 12.2-12.8 volts, the alternator or charging system is not working. The battery light should be on to signify this.

Ive a VW passat 99 1.6 petrol and the battery light on the dash is appearing and i am not sure whether its the battery needs changing or if its the alternator, I got a battery tester and comes up 12volts...


It should be charging at 14 to 14.5 volts when the car is running. SInce that's what you're getting, your alternator is good, and the battery is on it's way out.

Batteries keep going flat


No it does not, there is no connection.

If the alternator was not charging, your charge light should glow to tell you that. If the charge light is NOT glowing while driving, then you simply have a dying battery which cannot hold a charge for long.

The oil light not glowing when the ignition is turned on shows only that the globe has failed.

No power from alternator to battery


Is the battery ignition light coming on when you turn the key on. Wiring for an alternator is quite simple, the 60amp cable (thick wire) is a direct feed to the battery. The thin wire (normally blue) connected to the 'ing' terminal gets a live feed via the battery ignition light. if the bulb has blown or this wire is not connected, the alternator will not charge. If you can, use a 12v 5watt test light connected to the battery, start the engine and touch the 'ing' terminal. this should prove and energies the alternator to start charging.

1. Is the lights glowing correctly?
2. check the battery contacts once again re fix them.
3. check the polarity of control unit (Rectifier circuit).
4. check the charging current without load. if it is good it is to be expected. when there is 20 amp load.

ALTERNATOR/BATTERY PROBLEM


I would look for a large fuse or fuseable link between the alternator and the battery.

I have an 04 envoy with 108,000 miles runs strong but some issues. the car will try and die out and will recover but a few minutes later it will in fact die out! my key will get stuck in the ignition....


Your problem is not with the ignition key tumbler, but rather the ignition switch. This a common failure item with the Envoy. For tips on changing the switch, visit www.trailvoy.com and do a search on ignition switch.
