Question about 2001 Dodge Intrepid
The battery light came on, so I had the battery check and it needed to be charged, a few ours later my car turned off due to the battery dying. I had the alternator checked resulting that I needed a new one that I did replace. So, now I have a new alternator and battery; however, the battery light is still on. Can someone assist? I thank you in advanced for your time and understanding.
Two things I'd check with a Volt meter,( around $ 30.) make sure the Alt. is grounded properly. Put the positive (red) prong on the power connection and the negative (black) prong on the alt casing and check reading, should be around 14.3 no higher. Put pos. on power terminal on battery and neg on engine block, again it should read 14.3 also. If it is fluctuating irratically, there is probably a short in the system somewhere, also check your fuses and resistors in the fuse box. Good luck Cheers, Gary

Testimonial: "Good evening Gary, I thank you very much for your assistance. Now, there is no possible way for me or someone else to have it checked with a Volt meter. I'm a single mother that has been unemployed for the last few years; due to not been able to find a job. I apologize for giving you the T.M.I, however, there's a reason why I did; which takes me to ask you a question. Is there any way that I can check the fuses and resistors (don't know what resistors are) just by looking at them with the naked-eye? Again, today I replaced my 2 days old battery with a new one and the battery light is still on. Now, tomorrow morning I am going to double check and see if my "Alt. is grounded properly" since, it's 11:23pm now. Thank you once again Gary, I really appreciate your assistance. Good nigh and take care. :-)"
