Have you checked out your alternator and battery to see if it is good. You can go to a parts store and they will load test your battery for free. Generally with the lights on it means something is wrong with your charging system or battery.

Why wont it charge the battery


If the RED light with a battery symbol is lit on the dash while the engine is running, your alternator is bad.

Battery symbol lights stays on in message centre


There's a possibility that the alternator isn't putting out power to charge ththe battery anymore. To do a quick test, start the car and while it's running, remove the negative battery cable. If the car dies, the alternator isn't working anymore. If the car stays running, there's an electrical problem in the system somewhere.

My 2006 Chevy impala light came saying check battery charging system went to start light comes on goes to start but dies right.., it won't stay running.., does this mean I need a new battery? Also the...


Maybe.
It means the alternator is not charging the battery.
The battery could have a dead cell, or the alternator could be faulty, or a wiring problem between the two components.
You would need to have the battery and alternator tested.

Have a 92 astro van ext. alternator and battery are good but as im driving the battery dies and is not charging .. the charging light on the dash stays on.....any ideas as to what it could be?


If the battery symbol stays on on your dash, it is the alternator. I had a 91 Astrovan and the light was blinking and then finally stayed on. Talked to a mechanic at Pepboys and he said that was a bad diode in the alternator. Also, make sure that your battery cable is good and clean.

I left my lights on for a while about 1 week ago and ever since then the brake light and battery light symbols come on and off - when i rev the engine they go off, however, today they stayed on..please...


A common problem with a car battery is low voltage. As a battery losses it's ability to store electricity it will result in a insufficient flow of electrical energy to the components in the car so my advice is that you need a new battery change it or have a shop test it to see if it will take charge if not you'll need a new battery.

Battery symbol came on and stays on.


You can reset the light by disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10min but if it returns, have the charging system checked. A battery light could be an indication of a loose/bad connection (corrosion on calbes/terminals) or an alternator problem. Since you've ruled out a serpentine belt issue (unless is slick/worn and not grabbling) I'm sure it's one of the above. Best of luck with your problem.
