Sounds like a short in the brake light circuit - most likely near the brake pedal switch where the wires flex continuously.

CHECK ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT COULD BE LOOSE NEED ADJUSTING OR GLAZED NEED REPLACING. IF ALL IS GOOD, CHECK ALTERNATOR VOLTAGE OUT PUT AT BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR FAULTY BUT CHECK ALTERNATOR BATTERY FEED AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRES FOR LOOSE CONNECTION OR DAMAGED FRAYED WIRES. CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE.CHECK THOSE THINGS BEFORE BUYING NEW ALTERNATOR.FIRST TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE DISCONNECTING BATTERY CABLE TO KEEP FROM LOCKING OUT RADIO.

The redbattery light just came on. When I accelerate, the red light flashes. Can you help? Also, the red brake light comes on and off. Thank you.


The battery light may have come on because your alternator drive belt is loose or worn. The flickering could be explained by the acceleration. As you give it more revs the light goes off. On the other hand the alternator may need to be overhauled. I dont know what the brake light flashing is about.
