Make sure the engine is idling at the correct speed. A dirty throttle body or sticking idle control valve can cause engine speed to drop too low and the alternator will not spin fast enough to keep up with electrical loads.

The only voltage regulator is in the alternator and is not serviceable. Try looking at your battery connections and make sure they are all clean and tight, also check your earth connections from the battery to the body & engine. Get your battery checked, other than that get the alternator checked or changed. My opinion is that it is probably a bad or dirty earth connection, check for this first.

Hi Rich , what lights are you talking about ? Exterior Lighting , Interior Lighting ? It doesn't matter All lights are controlled by SJB smart junction box ! An you can't just stick in a used one , It will need to be programmed ! Interior Lighting The interior lighting system consists of the following components:
  • Smart junction box (SJB)
  • Dimmer control switch
  • Interior/map lamps
  • Cargo lamp
  • Glove compartment lamp
  • Vanity mirror lamps
  • Door ajar switches
  • Puddle lamps
The interior lighting system consists of 2 subsystems:
  • Courtesy lamps
  • Demand lamps
The courtesy lamps are controlled by the SJB. The courtesy lamp subsystem consists of the interior dome lamps, the puddle lamps and the overhead console lamps (if equipped). The SJB supplies voltage to the courtesy lamps when the SJB receives the required input.
The demand lamps are controlled by the SJB. The demand lamps subsystem consists of the glove compartment lamp, all map/reading lamps, and the left and right vanity mirror lamps.
The SJB supplies power to the interior lighting system. The SJB will set DTCs if certain circuit failures exist with the interior lighting system.
Exterior Lighting Headlamps
The headlamp system is a dual-beam pattern system. It consists of a low and high beam, with a replaceable bulb. The headlamp assembly has the park/turn indicator lamp integrated into the headlamp assembly. The smart junction box (SJB) supplies voltage to the headlamps when demanded.
Principles of Operation
The SJB receives inputs and delivers outputs to a majority of the electronically-controlled features of the vehicle. The SJB constantly monitors the systems under its control and reports a concern in the form of a DTC. The DTC can be retrieved with a scan tool through the medium speed controller area network (CAN) communication network.
NOTE: Prior to the removal of the SJB, it is necessary to upload the module configuration information to the diagnostic tool. This information must be downloaded to the new SJB after installation. For additional information, refer to Section 418-01 .

Oil light comes on when the car is idleing or when I let off of the gas it blinks what could be the problem?


Low oil pressure maybe? Oil pressure will vary depending on engine speed-higher speed=more psi, lower speed=less psi. If there is a mechanical reason for low oil psi then idle is when it will be low enough to turn on or flicker the light. Also, you could very possabily have a slugged up oil pick-up screen.

Battery wont charge, battery/ABS/SRS/BRAKE lights come on while driving and flicker. voltage increases to dash lights/fan speed/headlights periodically.


Get a volt meter, start your car and see how many volts your car is producing while running. Should be around 14 volts. May want to watch the meter for a while since your electric seems to fluctuate. Most voltage regulators are internal of your alternator. If you are getting a lot more or less than 14 volts while running, replace the alternator. If it is not charging, voltage will drop as vehicle runs, until battery is dead.
