i think it is the alternator because the idiot light is connected to your regulator of your alternator. it is an indication that your alternator is not charging anymore.

SOURCE: battery charge light comes on a few minutes after car starts

Couple of things to check, first this may be nothing more than a belt that has loosened or stretched after the install.There should only be about a quarter of an inch stretch in the belt between pulleys. Caution - only check with engine stopped!!! The alternator causes a strong resistance when it is producing electric power, so slippage is to be checked first. Second, if the battery light comes on and off; it maybe acting in error. Get a multi-meter and check the battery voltage with car and ignition shut off. With the meter set on 12volt bat, place the black probe on the negative side of battery or ground and the red probe on the positive side of battery. If you get a reading of 12.66 v the battery is being charged and is full. If you get 12.45 you have a 50% charged battery. If less the alternator wiring needs further checking into as there maybe issues with wiring or the alternator itself. Hope this helps.

Are you sure the alternator isnt "over" charging? if not, you may have a "loose" connection somewhere with the cables, or a malfunction in the dash cluster. Also, are you positive the battery is forsure good?

It can be as simple as the funny belt tensioner on the alternator!

I hope you got a simple volt meter to check the voltage.


12.8-13.6V is a health battery.

Get someone to help you to put tension on alt. belt.

If it does not look good then change it.

Double check all belts.

The should not give over 1/2" I like to keep them 1/3" of less.

Tighten all connections.

Pull spark plug cap one at at time to check for corrosion.

The coil can cause a lot of problem.

Spend time to grounding and secure all coil boot.


Good luck

Whats causing my battery not to stay charged on my 2006 mercury mariner. I have already checked the alternater and its ok


As long as the alternator is putting out between 13.8v and 14.5 its OK. Load test the battery. The only other thing is a parasitic draw. Usually happens from a light staying on or some other keep alive memory device in the car. Easy way is to take a 12v test light and remove the positive battery terminal. Place the test light between the terminal and the battery with everything off. If the light comes on bright you have a draw. Leave the test light attached and try removing a fuse at a time until it goes out. Once it does you found the circuit to go after.

I have a2001 Saturn SL and the battery light came on,Ireplaced the battery and had the Alternater checked but the battery light stays on. Advance Auto Parts said the alternater is not chargeing


Battery light usually means the alternator is not charging, get yourself a multimeter, select Volts, put red probe on positive and black probe on negative while the car is running, it should read above 13 Volts, not higher than high 14s, if it reads 12 volts or lower while engine is running than your charging system, alternator mainly, needs attention, any decent mechanic can check this in 2 minutes.

My battery light has started coming on intermittently the past couple of days. What could this be? I did notice on the highway at night that the lights seemed to dim a couple of times and then come back...


You are at the beginning of a charging system problem. Items included are Alternator, battery, drive belts, wiring and ground circuits.
If you are a backyard guy, pull the alternator and get it bench tested.

hi, if the battery light is lighting up then this indicates the battery isnt charging properly so what you need to do now is check that the alternater belt is tighten correctly and not slipping check all wires going to the alternater if they are ok then the chance are the alternater needs replacing.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Alternater not giving enough power


Check wiring on alternator and battery. Also be sure that there are plenty of ground straps. there should be one from battery to body and body to motor. Without enough ground this could also cause your problem.

03 kia won't start


Hi do you have any power at all ie when you turn the ignition on do you get all the dashboard lights light up as normal and can you use the headlights etc if you can are the lights bright or not.

If you have no power at all then the chances are the battery needs replacing or it could even be that the alternater needs replacing and then your battery has run flat.

The best thing to do is either charge your battery up and then try your car again if it starts up as normal but their is a picture of the battery lit up on the dashboard then this indicates that the alternater needs replacing.

If after charging the battery you still have no power at all then this would indicate that the leads coming from the battery are loose or not connected at all.

The main problem with the leads from the battery is with the earth leads one should go to the body work you will need to undo this and check that this is not corroded where it touches the body work you can use sand paper to remove any corrosion
The other earth lead connects to the engine check this is still connected and free from corrosion.

Check also the possitive lead from the battery that goes to the starter motor check this is still connected also as this is the main lead from the battery.

You could try using jump leads from someone elses car onto your battery this way if you still had no power it would then 100% be the leads at fault.

If after connecting the jump leads you thne have power and can then start the car this would then indicate that either the battery is at fault or the alternater the way to test this would be when the car is running at night time park up agains a wall about 10 feet away with the head lights on full beam facing the wall no when you rev the engine up the lights should shine slightly brighter then when you stop revving it should go slightly dim if it does this then the alternater is ok and the battery needs replacing.

If the lights dont go any brighter then this suggests that the alternater needs replacing.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
