I would have to say the alternator or voltage regulator is faulty, tho im not sure if the voltage regulator is located on the alternator or somewhere in the engine compartment on this model. Hope this helps.

Battery light comes while driving


Someone is missing something. Suggest alternator may be putting out voltage but not amperage or vice versa.

Battery light is on whilst driving


If your battery light is on whilst driving and your battery goes flat then their could be one of two faults you need to look for.
The first and most likely cause is that either the fan belt has snapped or if you have a squeling noise then the chances are it just needs adjusting.

If how ever the belt is fine and isnt slipping then this would indicat that the alternater isnt charging the battery properly so this would then need replacing.

Engine is heating up. very low idle when stopped. turn on heater makes strange noise and affects the idle of the engine.


This is impossible to tell without seeing the vehicle, but check to be sure your sepentine belt is still intact and turning the alternater and the water pump. I've seen these go out b4, and these symptoms seem consistent with the belt not driving it's components, overheating (the water pump not being turned) and lack of electrical poiwer( the alternater not being turned). Good luck and contact me if you are still having problems. We will try our best to help you solve this!

hi, if the battery light is lighting up then this indicates the battery isnt charging properly so what you need to do now is check that the alternater belt is tighten correctly and not slipping check all wires going to the alternater if they are ok then the chance are the alternater needs replacing.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Alternater not giving enough power


Check wiring on alternator and battery. Also be sure that there are plenty of ground straps. there should be one from battery to body and body to motor. Without enough ground this could also cause your problem.

03 kia won't start


Hi do you have any power at all ie when you turn the ignition on do you get all the dashboard lights light up as normal and can you use the headlights etc if you can are the lights bright or not.

If you have no power at all then the chances are the battery needs replacing or it could even be that the alternater needs replacing and then your battery has run flat.

The best thing to do is either charge your battery up and then try your car again if it starts up as normal but their is a picture of the battery lit up on the dashboard then this indicates that the alternater needs replacing.

If after charging the battery you still have no power at all then this would indicate that the leads coming from the battery are loose or not connected at all.

The main problem with the leads from the battery is with the earth leads one should go to the body work you will need to undo this and check that this is not corroded where it touches the body work you can use sand paper to remove any corrosion
The other earth lead connects to the engine check this is still connected and free from corrosion.

Check also the possitive lead from the battery that goes to the starter motor check this is still connected also as this is the main lead from the battery.

You could try using jump leads from someone elses car onto your battery this way if you still had no power it would then 100% be the leads at fault.

If after connecting the jump leads you thne have power and can then start the car this would then indicate that either the battery is at fault or the alternater the way to test this would be when the car is running at night time park up agains a wall about 10 feet away with the head lights on full beam facing the wall no when you rev the engine up the lights should shine slightly brighter then when you stop revving it should go slightly dim if it does this then the alternater is ok and the battery needs replacing.

If the lights dont go any brighter then this suggests that the alternater needs replacing.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Battery lite stays on when engine is running


If you have checked the battery, alternater, fuses and relays, it could be a faulty earth. Alternater may be faulty, there is a very good chance your fan belt may need tightening, your fan belt should not be too slack as if it was slack, it would not charge the battery properly and thus cause the battery light to stay on, if you push down on the belt it should move a little, but hardly much, if it is slack you may also get a squeal especially in wet weather, I would reccomend that you replace the fan belt. This is not expensive especially if you do the job yourself.
