Charge should be 14.2 volts with engine running, take your car to an electrician to test the battery and alternator, he won't charge you for that. Good luck

Hi again just got a new battery, battery light is still on car is starting, but now whats the problem


The BATTERY light indicates that your battery is not getting charged. There could be several reasons for this most probably your alternator, which generates the current to charge the battery when the engine is running. If the new battery is not getting charged, it will eventually drain not start your car. To confirm that the battery is not getting charged and that is the reason for the BATTERY light, put a volt meter across the battery while the engine is running. It should read around 13 volts indicating that current is flowing into the battery. If it reads 11 volts or less, that means the batter is being drained and not charged. Then have your alternator checked.G

Car has new alternator and battery but battery light continues to come on dimmly. Voltage reading is 11 volt instead of 14 volts. What do I need to make my car run right again?


Could be a fuseable link or fuse - or the computer.
I would check for voltage on the alternator terminals first.
The computer sends a signal to the alternator to activate it.

Instructions for changing alternator on 1986 Toyota Cressida. Dash lights indicating bad battery came on.new battery starts right up... Problem with alternator????


The light comes on because it is not receiving the proper signal from the electrical circuit. Before you replace any parts take a 1/2 hour and some emery cloth and make sure that all the connections are tight and making good contact. Do the battery cables at the battery and the wires that attach to the alternator, including the plug-ins. Also clean up the ground wire that runs from the battery to the body. If the light is still on then get both the alternator and the battery tested. The alternator should read above 12.5 volts, preferably 13.5 to 14. It might be a new battery but get it "load tested". This is a measure of your battery's ability to retain voltage. A reading in the area of 11 volts after the test is an indication the battery is dying or not big enough to do the job. 500 CCA is a good size for a battery, less is working it harder and wearingit out faster. Hope this helps.

1998 windstar van: charging system light goes


It could mean the alternator has gone bad already... with the car off, the battery leads should read 11-12V.. with the car on, the battery should read 13-14V.. if it's lower then it's not charging your battery and if it's higher, it's damaging your battery....
