Corrosion. Remove the batteries and look at the battery leads in your product. White to greenish color.

Periodic battery light flickers on my 2003 town car.if you just tap on brake or flicker headlights .is there a separate diode that could cause this?

You have a defective alternator, that what is most likely causing the flickering light. A voltage output test will not reveal this.

It is very easy. I suggest rechargeable batteries since they last longer and cost less with use.

I have a 2003 caravelle tdi 2.5, the battery is running down too quick if it stands for a day it needs to be jump started.

First do not assume anything. How old is the battery? Of it is more than 7 years old, it probably needs replaced. It all depends on the cycle of charging of the battery. Short trips cause the battery to be in a less than ideal state of charge. The longer a battery stays in this state the more the plates become sulfate which means less life. A full charged battery should last for 10 years by this is rare. The charging system must be ebaluated to see if the alternator is keeping the battery at full charge. If only short trips and no road trips are being taken, them a battery charger/maintainer is needed. Voltage to batter from alternator should be 13.6v up to 14.3 depending on the load. If a auto battery becomes completely dead because of a constant discharge, it looses half its life every time it happens.

2003 Ford Windstar won't start

Either your battery has failed or the alternator/ regulator/rectifier has. With the engine running, check the DC voltage at the battery terminals it should be above 13 volts but below 15. If it is outside this range then your alternator or regulator has failed. This is the most likely. If it is in this range then you need a new battery. As you have changed the battery it may need changing again if the rectifier has failed. but hope it is the alternator giving no output.

Lights flicker

When my headlights started to flicker at night, I soon found out it was the battery. It died one night sitting in a friend's driveway with the radio and headlights on. My battery was over 5 years old at the time, and the tow truck driver said I was lucky to have it work that long. I purchased a new battery and the lights no longer flicker at night. Just a suggestion. Hope this helps you.

My battery light is flickering on my 1998 ford Taurus. The alternator is only two years old but the battery is close to six or seven years old. But, it still starts up in negative degree temperatures. The...

Probably the alternator again. If you have a voltmeter or there is one in the car, check battery voltage with car running. It should be at least 14 volts. Not 14 volts or no voltmeter--take alternator off and have tested at parts chain. Let me know if you need instructions or have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Started with the battery light flikering, then all the electrics went including the powered steering. Battery is now flat and will not start. The alternater belt is ok

One of the most common causes of electronic problems i have found is the battery losing capacity. How old is the battery? Most batteries are designed to last around 4-5 years. After this range, the battery will start to fail and will lack the ability to start the car, and is some cases, especially in newer cars, the ability to power different accessories. In one of my cars, a Corolla, the old battery just caused the engine. In my other car, a town and country, all of the electronics would sputter,e.i. the tachometer and speedometer would flicker violently. If the battery is old, or you are not sure of its age, take it to a garage or autopart store like Autozone and have its capacity checked. They will usually do this for free. If the battery is new, or the capacity check showed that the battery is fine, i dont really have any other advice, but atleast you know its not the battery. Anyways, i hope this helps in some way. The best of luck...

I have a 96 cavy z24 battery died but was able to get car home

you may have blown a fuse in a process of remove and install the alternator ( the car was running before that right? )
so check all your fuses and fusible links coming from the starter.
check for spark at spark plugs
check for fuel pressure
these will help you to issolate problems
