Remove your alternator and have it tested at your favorite auto parts store,It sounds like it went bad,if it is and you do replace it make sure your new battery did not get drained due to your bad alternator.

Is this an ECM problem?


No, not the ECM. Replace the alternator. The ECM fields/grounds the alternator to work. The ECM monitors the voltage and sets the light if voltage is to low or to high. Since it puts out 16+ volts the ECM is still working. The regulator in the alternator is bad.

1999 cadillac seville wiring diagram


Check wiring with a test light or volt meter. switch lights to low beam, connect volt meter N probe to a good ground then probe the light socket for the low beam power cable, should show battery voltage, now switch to high beam and test for battery voltage if ok remove the grounded meter probe and probe the cable in the socket that you have not tested this is the ground cable, battery voltage should show if ground cable is ok. If no voltage repair cable ,If voltage present check filament on bulb high beam perhaps the new bulb is faulty.

Wont start or turn over but makes a clicking sound at the shifter


when you hear a clicking sound it means your battery voltage is too low The battery posts and clamps need to be cleaned and put back together. Did you leave lights on or something to kill the battery? Or is the battery not charging? You may need a new battery and a new voltage regulator. Is the belt tight? Is the alternator producing a voltage or is it time to get it serviced or replaced? These are rhetorical questions of course.

Check the belt tension for the alternator. Have load test done on the batteries as if one battery has a bad cell it will cause a charging problem

New Battery low voltage issue


If the alternator light is on there is a problem in the charging system. Have a local Autozone or O'reilly auto parts test it when the light is on, do not have the test run unless the light is on. I think you have a defective alternator but the meeting should confirm this.

My dad purchased a suzuki swift new in 2009 from garage and it is now on its 3rd battery. The garage just replace the battery with a new one. What could be causing the battery to go flat


1- battery with low voltage or out of charge for several days 2- excessive usage of electrical equipment esp. the lights while the engine off 3- low battery fluid level 4- and rarely, hyper voltage supplied to the bat. 5- check the dynamo belt (loose)

2004 ranger battery light is on put in new battery bui light is still on


Could be the alternator output too low. If it is not producing enough voltage then your new battery will eventually run down.
