Check to see if alternator is charging. Battery light is an indicator that your alternator is not charging. Start engine use multimeter at battery 20 v dc or if autorange meter just dc. engine at idle the battery should read 14 - 14.5 volts. if not replace alternator.

When the car is left overnight the battery is flat the next day. Also the dash boad lights are on indicating a problem with the brakes and the airbag.


START THE CAR, CHECK VOLTAGE AT BATTERY WHILE RUNNING AT HIGH IDLE. VOLTAGE SHOULD BE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 13.80 TO 14.80 OVER 14 IS BETTER. IF THAT IS OK THERE MAY BE A BATTERY DRAIN. TO CHECK FOR A DRAIN, TURN OFF ALL SWITCHES, CLOSE ALL DOORS , INCLUDING GLOVE COMP. DISCONNECT NEG. BATT. CABLE, PUT 12 VOLT CIRCUIT TESTER ONE END ON NEG. BATT TERM. THE OTHER END ON THE NEG CABLE. IF THE LIGHT COMES ON THERE IS A DRAIN. NO LIGHT - NO DRAIN. IF NO DRAIN HAVE THE BATTERY TESTED AT A CERTIFIED ELECTRICAL SHOP

I am afraid not the dash bleeps if you have left the lights on, indicating you have left them on and to turn them off.
Otherwise the lights will stay on and rapidly drain the battery.
Alternatively buy a 12v trickle charger which yyou place in the windscreen it should help keep your battery alive.

This should be done with everything turned off and the door closed. with negative battery disconnected. place 12 v test light between the battery terminal and the cable end.(on neg. side) if the light lites up there is a drain. remove one fuse at a time until u see the lite go out. that is the sytem the drain is on. usually glove box light or trunk light or visor light left on or stuck on.

Battery


Hi there. It appears that some electrical devise on your vehicle which is draining the battery. As a quick check, you should check absolutely every interior light is going off – the cabin lights and if fitted the following lights – luggage/boot light, glove box light, under-the-hood lights. I you are sure none of these have been accidentally left on you then need to have someone check just how many amps are being drained from the battery – this will give an indication of the ‘load’ that’s draining the battery and thus the offending/likely electrical circuit. Of course, it might also be the battery that is at fault, in that there is an internal short circuit within the battery. If you are able to look into each cell of the battery, if you see the water bubbling within one particular cell, then it probably indicates that there is a short in the battery and that it needs replaced. Again, have the Dealer or Fast Fit Center undertake a battery discharge test, this will quickly identify whether your battery is performing properly. Hope this helps, Scottech.
