Dear Battery Light.......Can I make a couple of suggestions for you? First off...let's double check and make sure that the electrical pigtail for the alternator is actually engaged on the alternator...give it a little push to make sure it's in well. Second......are the battery terminals clean and mounted securely? Make sure of that.....finally..take a little gander and make sue that your ground straps are back on the engine and trans ground...you can perform a simple charging system test on your honda to see if you are even putting out enough voltage to satisfy your motor....please get back to me if you need and more help...

My 2009 Chevy Malibu just had a new battery put in within the last 60 days. Then I needed a new transmission. Got it fixed. Today my battery light comes on and stays on. What is this?


The light means that your battery is not being charged properly. It could be that when the transmission was replaced, they alternator belt was not put in properly or tight enough. I'd do the following:
1. Check battery connections to make sure they are clean and tight.
2. Check the drive belt to the alternator. It should be tight and not slipping.
3. If neither of the above is the problem, fully charge the battery with a battery charger so you can drive it for a while. Don't drive it without charging or you may get stranded. Don't let the battery run all the way down either or it may ruin it.
3. Check alternator output by driving to a nearby auto store or the place you had it repaired. They usually can check your charging system for free. The alternator could have decided to malfunction, although it's pretty new.
Good luck...

Why is my transmission not selecting gears


check the battery with a load tester and have the out put of the alternator checked . Clean battery terminals and posts to shiny clean and ensure that they are tight.. With the battery light coming on it is possible that the gear problems is that the voltage to the TCM is too low and so it is not operating properly or the solenoids are not getting sufficient voltage to operate properly.

Battery light, ABS light, and Oil light flashes on and off when driving the car. Dash lights,front marker lights, and tail lights will not come on until the car is warmed up.


Electrical problems are hard to fix. You need a voltage test for the charging system and a battery test.

The oil light, abs light, are not hooked up to the turn signals. Never heard of balance of lights coming on in that manner.

The heater fan, headlights, and wipers will slow if the charging system can not keep up. Battery light is accurate to show discharge.

Trans shifts can be affected by voltage. Some transmissions use electric solenoids to shift and they mix voltage to get different gears.

Car stays in 2nd gear all of the time. (Limp mode) Fix Engine light stays on, D green light blinks constantly for automatic transmission Honda Accord 2005


Ah, I see. You want to outsmart the computer? Right logic, wrong computer. I think the problem is not in the transmission, but it is the engine computer that has communicated with the transmission computer and put the car in limp-in mode. The fix engine light is sent from the engine computer, and this is the main computer in the car, the main drive train computer, if you will.
The short answer is yes it will reset, by just unhooking the battery. Won't do any harm. Start it up about an hour later, and be sure and let it warm up to normal operating temperature (closed loop) before you take it out for a test drive. Otherwise you may be miles from home in 2nd gear limp-in mode again.
The real fix is to talk to your car...like communicate with the computer and get those trouble codes read...talk to it nice, not the abrupt tone of the glaring idiot light, and maybe it will respond in a kinder, gentler easy to fix diagnostic code!!!!
Good luck.

Hold light blinking, check engine light on, engine slows down


check tps sensor (throttle position sensor in backside of the throttle cable) and map sensor (manifold absolute pressure on front little 1 inch sensor with vacuum line) make sure there plugged in. the ecm (engine control module driver side inner fender) and tcm (transmission control module under dash) both need the data to know when to upshift and increase fuel/air. Otherwise the computer runs default values and guesses off of other sensors giving poor performance. also disconnect battery for 15 min. usually resets aveo service lights if you dont have a scanner.

Fixed check engine trouble code but light with same code comes on


Your transmission problem could be related to the TPS sensor. The TPS sensor indicated to the PCM when and what gear the transmission should be in. As for the Lucas and other additives to the transmission may be doing it more harm then good, As the transmission oil is thicker, the transmission line pressure increases. The PCM try's to compensate for that by letting the converter lock up clutch to slip and the fluid retention in the solenoid to change gears stick causing it to shudder between gear shifts. Recap, Check the TPS sensor readings and the Wire Harness. Look for loose connections and corrosion that may not be giving the proper readings to the ECM. Rescan the car for any DTC codes and most transmission chop can do that for you if your going to get it serviced there anyways. Have the transmission fluid flushed and filter changed, and have them do a transmission line pressure checked, there are additives out there to keep the fluid from foaming which is ok, but changing the fluid's weigh can cause transmission failure. Good luck and hope this helps and keep me posted, be glad to help.

Check engine light


The check engine is a fault indicator, it will stay on until the fault is fixed and a certain number of miles driven to check that the fix was successful, it can' t be reset, you can erase the code with either a OBD 2 scan tool, or in some cases by disconnecting the battery for 1 hour, but if the fault is not fixed the light will come back on in short order. Very seldom do you fell anything different unless the fault is transmission related.
