Question about 2003 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

Help! I need answers.

Battery light keeps coming on after the altenator and battery were replaced. I can drive it a few miles and then the ABS light, Service engine, Service Engine Soon and battery light all come back on and the headlights go out!

Anyone know what I can try next?

Battery light followed by total failure on freeway. Autozone tested altenator and replaced battery earlier that day.


change alternator and maybe battery. Since the battery is pretty new, draining it like you say only took a year or two off its lifespan. Remember how your car acted this time, as most newer cars do the same exact thing when the charging system or battery needs service. In the future, you will recognize the symptom and know where to look before you get stranded.

Battery light and abs light is on and battery wont stay charged, new battery and altenator is good


This sounds like a bad alternator , maybe it charges at times and other times it does not, check connections to battery and at alternator, also make sure all fuse are good.

This is yet another question about my 1999 mazda protege, I replaced the battery and altenator but the battery light still came on after just a few short rides in the car, what else could be wrong????


Check the wiring to the alternator for signs of overheated connectors, replace as needed and don't use crimp connectors solder all wiries and shrink tube them to insuklate the solder joints.

Battery and brake indicator light stays on after start


When the lights are on check the battery voltage. Should be 13.0 to 14.5. If you unplug the connector on the alternator when the lights are on, do they go off?

Brake, ABS,STC,CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS ON.


I had the same problem which was diagnosed incorrectly 3 times
Could be one of 2 things you may want to check
Have a tech read your codes
Have the ABS Control Module checked by a technician. If that is ok then make sure they look at the altenator
In my case, I was getting voltage spikes that were shorting out system controls -the ABS Control Module and the battery, etc. Once they put in a new altenator, the problem was fixed.
