Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
Yesterday, the ABS and battery light flashed as I accelerated and went off when I braked or was idle. I drove 2 blocks home and parked the vehicle. Went out this morning to do a volt test (to see if it was alternator) and battery was completely dead. Could bad battery be causing the light issues or was it the alternator that allowed the battery to die?
I suggest you pull the battery and alternator then take them to a auto parts store for testing. Most major chain stores will do this for free. Another alternative is to get the car running with a jump or battery swap. After you get the car running remove the positve (red) battery cable. If the engine dies the alternator is not working. If the alternator is bad you will want to get your battery checked. The alternator going out could have damaged the battery so that it will not hold a full charge. Good Luck!
