The battery light indicates insufficient voltage. I would recheck all the battery connections to be sure they are clean and tight. I would also have the alternator output tested, since the light will come on if the alternator is not providing sufficient voltage to keep the battery charged. Take the vehicle to an autoparts store and they will test the battery condition and alternator output for free. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped, Best wishes.

If the battery light is coming on have the charging system checked. You may have a bad alternator and/or voltage regulator. The battery light is for the whole charging system not just the battery. But the first step now is have the system checked and that will tell you the next step to take.

Ford Escape 2003 new starter and battery turn over but still drags


Check all terminal connections. I would return the battery and have them check it, even if it is new. I have had this happen to me with a new battery. Next I would have the starter checked. Fully charge the battery with an external charger. Leave it disconnected over night. Reconnect the battery and try to start the vehicle. If it is slow to turn, the battery could have a bad cell in it. Fully charge it before you return it to the store to be checked.
