I think that you have a alternator/rectifier problem more than at battery problem. See how you go with the new battery and if it gives up on you, you will know were to go next good luck.

Resolving battery dying out and discharge light dosen't come on?

Discharge light will actually only come on when the alternator is not putting out its normal 13.5 - 14.5 volts. Sounds to me your alternator is fine, your battery has some dead cells, and will go dead soon as you shut off your engine. Battery is not accepting the charge the alt. is giving it. New battery is needed.

Battery light is indicating that you have a problem with your charging system (alternator).
Sometime old faults are stored on system and need to clear the memory.
To clear the memory.
unplug both wires on battery terminal.
Touch them wire together that will clear any stored memory from the system.
Reconnect wire and re-check for any lights.

Hope that help.

My 04 Ford Focus the battery light keeps coming on & going off, have fitted a new alternator belt but it didn't solve the problem. The battery connections are good. Also the rev counter, speedo & mileage clock keep going haywire when the battery light is on. Do you think it is the alternator? Or is it some other common problem?

My 1998 deville has a new battery, new alternator,oil changed and new filter and it sometimes goes dead as I am driving it. Oil light comes on. Have any ideas what this might be?

OK, the oil light going on means that the oil and filter should be changed again and the 10w30 oil should be used.

The alternator may be defective.

Just fitted new alternator but battery light not working

That indicator is commanded by a relay connected to the alternator. Check the wires and the relay. Or it may be just a burned bulb.

Bmw e46 battery light comes on intermitantly when driving and car feels its about to stall. i have had a new alternator fitted and battery is ok but still get the same problem.

One of the wires in the circuit is loose, or a fused link is defective. Check all fasteners and connectors to make sure they are secure. Spray a small amount of lithium grease on the connectors to ensure that they connect fully - your intermittent problem is due to intermittent contact.

1991 ford ranger battery light

bad battery module for the light or a dieing cell in battery

batterys can be tested and wont show a dead cell at all but you will be told that the battery good
most batterys are refurbished batterys sometimes getting the luck of a good battery is 50/50 chance

heres a way to test the battery and alternator at the same time
start vehicle
disconnect battery positive post
if vehicle dies the alternator is at fault if vehicle doesnt die its the batterys life dead cell
