I don't know if that was a question or a statement, if the belt broke off then replace it. it is probably the reason your brake light and your battery light came on. your alternator can't charge the battery with no acc belt and as for the brakes, well i need more info to really answer anything further. i don't even know there is a question involved.

Overheated while driving.


Your timing belt broke. Normally it won't start after breaking, but it could have jumped a gear and when it did start it ran very poorly. Finally it broke completely. Timing belts are only good for 60-80,000 miles, most never change it till it breaks. Unfortunately many engines are ruined when the timing belt breaks due to no clearance between the valves and pistons. Your car, depending on which engine, is safe. It has clearance built in . While you replace the timing belt, I would reccommend replacing the timing gears too, and if you have high mileage, replace the water pump, because it is behind the belt.

My car was squeaking like a belt.then the battery light came on while driving.it drained the battery


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Looks like that you have an alternator belt issue. It was squeaking for the belt is loosen. I strongy suggest that you tighthen it for the alternator to charge the battery. If the alternator belt looks worn then replace it for optimum performance.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Check alternator belt. Light is to show alternator working, not battery state.
If you have a volt meter check output is around 12.5 -14.5 volts when car running.

While driving my 2003 Jetta TDI last night accelerating up a hill my battery light came on and the car died. All other lights work, glow plug light still comes on. Engine turns over but does not fire. ...


Did you check the battery? Alternator? The 2003 Jetta TDI's are FAMOUS for breaking the alternator pulley right off the shaft. Is your serpentine belt hanging?
You could have a bad battery, broken alternator, broken serpentine belt, or bad alternator among a few other things. If your belt is hanging either the belt broke or more commonly, the alternator puller broke off the shaft.
It happens all the time with the 2003's

Over-heating after squealing. could it be a broken alternator bel


Your serpentine belt broke. Don't drive the car until it's replaced. You will totally drain your battery and possibly blow the enging because the coolant isn't being pumped through.

My lights started going dim on the dash. the voltage kight started comeing on and then the warning sign came on check chargeing system


You need a new alternator. Also check to be sure that your serpentine belt didnt break. The car was not charging the battery (either the belt broke or the alternator is bad) and running entirely off the battery causing the lights to dim and the voltage light and check charging system lights to come on. Good luck to you. Thanks for using fixya!
