Question about 2005 Volkswagen Passat
Today while driving on highway the battery light came on and then went off when I slowed down. The car has 71,000 mile on it. Any idea what it may be? Could it be the alternator, belt etc..
Check your battery terminals are not loose or corroded.
Check your alternator dive belt tension is OK.
If no problem with drive belt, it may be worn alternator brushes.
If the problem persists get the alternator checked.
