Have you battery tested. Maybe you battery is failing or has failed and is weak. Also check your connections and make sure your belts are in good condition and tight

Car is operating off battery only


Check the main lead from the alternator back to the battery especially at the battery terminal where it may be corroded off. While the alternator may be good if there is a failed diode in the rectifier in the back of the alternator it will not charge as it will be producing ac current and you need dc to charge the battery.

Battery not charging car is dead and will not start


Starting with the battery light, the warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. It could be a faulty alternator, or a problem with the wiring between the battery and the alternator.
Normally you can drive a vehicle for several miles on the battery alone.
If you have charged the battery and it checks out ok, you would need to check the wiring from the battery to the alternator and to the fuse box for problems.

Brake light on, gas light on, battery light on. Dashboard lights.


Hi, that would be your alternator needs to be overhauled. The battery light is usually a good indicator that your alternator is not charging.
You'll need to get the bearings,brushes, and vacum pump seals replaced. Hopefully the regulator is ok, but they will test this when you get it repaired.

In short your alternator is not charging....

2000 Saturn LS1 dashboard battery lite


the alternator has a circuit in it that illuminates the battery light on the dash.that circuit is most likely at fault but because the battery went dead once i would think your alternator is just about at the end of it's useful life.

Car died but now starts


Try cleaning the battery cables where they contact the battery. If that doesn't do the trick, most auto parts stores wil ltest your battery for free. Do both first before lookng into the charging system. Alternatively, Place an external battery charger on the battery and charge it up. If that fixes it  then test the charging system.
