You may need to have the error code reset by the dealer. Once the cars computer senses an issue it will lock it in untill repaired and reset. The only other possible problem is you alternator. If you alternator is going bad it is not sending enough power to recharge your battery properly. A new alternator can be replaced for under $200.00. Lets hope it is just an error code that needs resetting. Take care and please leave me positive feedback. It means a lot to me. If you have more questions do not hesitate to send them to me. I will do anything I can to get you taken care of. Have a good day.

When you get these batteries they only have a surface charge on them the battery must be charged, after charging reinstall and try the vehicle if the light still stays on the alternator may be shot. while engine is running put the red probe of a voltmeter set on dc to the back of the alternator contacting the large power output wire where it conects to the back of the alternator, there is usually a nut do this while all accessories are on especially the rear defroster the other black probe should be touching ground the meter should read between 13 and 14 volts while under such a load if it reads below 13 volts the alternator will not keep the battery charged up. Batteries if fully charged should read 12.65 volts any charge rate from alternator below this output is inadequate

Brake light and battery light both on


Hi Greg:

Is it possible that the brake switch is stuck on?

That would eventually cause the battery to go dead.



I'd suggest you charge the battery and try temporarily removing the wires from the brake light switch. See if the problem continues. Do not run the vehicle on the road without functional brake lights. UNSAFE, and ILLEGAL.

Battery light on red.. replaced battery light still on


That battery light is a charging indicator. If the vehicle starts and runs, then the battery can't be the problem. The alternator isn't charging, replace the alternator. Have it tested first to be sure it isn't some other issue, but 99 times of a hundred, it is the alternator that causes that battery light to come on.

Battery light


On this issue i suggest you to get the battery and its connections checked.
Either battery is got weak or the problem is related to loose battery connections.Some times battery connectors gets dirty and cause no connection issue.So disconnect battery terminals,clean them and reconnect and check ,if that is helping.
Also if the battery is got very old,then try with new battery.

2003 Cavalier. Battery warning light came on


Check for bad connection to the battery. Use a volt meter to check voltage from alternator to the battery, should be 14.5 volts to 15 volts. If you have anything less than that then look for a bad alternator wire from alternator to battery. Also check for a good ground connection to the battery. Do all the testing with everything off inside the car so you will not have a power drain from the system. hope this will help you.

Replaced battery, light is still on


The battery light is usually an indication that the battery is not charging. This could mean your alternator is bad but sure to check the alternator belt tension carefully. If it is loose, it can make the alternator appear bad.

Battery indecator light on on dash


Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.

My dashboard battery light is illuminated/i replaced the battery but light is still illuminated??


The battery light is not an indicator to replace the battery. It is an indicator to tell you that your alternator is not producing sufficient voltage to charge the battery. If you have a Delco alternator, you would be best advised to replace it. Those cars were notorious for bad Delco alternators.

Replace the alternator, and you should be fine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!
