Have you checked your belts and charging system? The light is telling you that you have a problem in the charging system. This could be the belt, battery, loose wire or alternator. You need to to address this or you may get stranded somewhere with a car that won't run. Once you perform these checks you'll find the problem and can repair as needed.

This problem is caused in a Faulty Alternator. The Output from the Alternator is not enough or somehow dropping. This may be because of faulty Alternator. Replace the Alternator. Also to be confirmed, take a Volt meter and use it to check the output from it.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

My Buick Rendezvous's battery keeps dying. Charged it, died again. The battery light keeps turning on then it dies. I don't know what to do, I really need this car. I dont know if its the alternator.


The Battery Light coming on usually indicates the charging system is not working. If you can limp it down to your local Auto Parts Store they will usually check your battery and charging system for free.
Yes a fuse can cause charging system to malfunction - also there will be a Major Fuse/Fusable Link. If you have your owners manual there will be a section showing fuse locations and description.
Let me know if and how this helps you
thanks

I have an 09impala that wont start the battery charging system light come on i dont know what to do


The light comes on because the system is not charging the battery. But this does not mean the alternator is bad. It could be a plug, wiring, Or (worst case) the ECM is bad.

Truck wont start red light keeps blinking fast keep hearing clicking under the hood and in the cab dont know what happened got in the truck to start it, and had driven down the road and it died. now the...


THAT SOUNDS LIKE LOW VOLTAGE. PUT A VOLTMETER ON THE BATTERY WHILE TURNING THE KEY IN THE START POSITION. IF THE VOLTAGE DROPS BELOW 8 VOLTS, THAT IS TOO LOW. BATTERY NEEDS TO BE CHARGED OR REPLACED & TERMINALS CLEANED. IF IT STARTS CHECK THE CHARGING SYSTEM. MOTOR RUNNING, VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY SHOULD READ 13.90 TO 14.90. IF IT IS TOO LOW GET THE ALTERNATOR TESTED.

Why does the battery light keep coming on after


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.

The alternator is not charging. Don't drive that far with the light on. You won't make it.
