You have a charging system problem, low voltage output most likely due to a defective diode in the alternators rectifier circuit.

Battery light on my message center


Hello...A red battery light or image usually means there is a problem with your charging system..either your alterator is either not operating or emitting low voltage usually because of diode failure...alternators generate Alternator Current(AC) which is the same of household current...but the vehicle can not use this...It doesn't even register...The alternator has diodes which convert AC current to DC(Direct Current) which the vehicle can use....If the alternator is not doing it's job...The vehicle will pull current from the battery while the vehicle is operating..which is not good.The alternator should be able to run the vehicle...all the accessories...and charge the battery all at the same time...Drive it into an auto parts store and have them test your charging system before you get stranded...and most of the time...the car will die at night because of the headlights.....Let me know what happens...I hope this was helpful.....PEACE.....

Most likely you have a bad alternator. The alternator maintains the the charging system. you have the option to remove the alternator and take it to the parts store and have it tested too!.

Sounds like your alternator is not charging your battery. Probably a loose wire, battery cables, alternator wires, or possibly a bad alternator. Check all the wire connections. Check for a loose or bad alternator belt and have the alternator and battery tested.

My 2003 mercedes kompressor C200 key is not working!


the key's are special order and they are fairly expensive. Test the voltage in your remote batteries. They should be 3 volts. These systems are very voltage senstive and require a good battery to operate properly. I'm assuming you have the original batteries in the remote now and it is 6 plus years old. These batteries generally last 3 years so it is definatly time if you have not replaced them yet!
