I was just reading on another forum about the Ford Escape Battery lights staying on. They said it was the overflow reservoir being low. My 2003 Ford Escape XLS battery light has been on for 6 months. I went to autozone last Wednesday and they said my battery was bad. I got it replaced yesterday. Battery light still on.
So tonight after I read the other forum, I figured it would be worth checkng. My reservoir was about 1/2 inch below the full line. I filed it about 1/4 inch above the full line.....lo and behold, the battery light went off when I started the car. How freakin stupid. But there is your answer.

This is a clear sign of a alternator going bad or the result of the pos + wire not tight on the alternator, which creates a short because of arching in turn creates corrosion.

Did you have the alternator tested on the car, or off ?
If the alternator charges but the light stays on, the problem could be in the wiring on the car.

1995 Toyota V6 Battery light on instrument cluster stays on


The battery light comes on if the battery voltage is too low. Check you battery voltage. It should be above 12V with the engine running. If not, the alternator is not working. Next, check if there is power on the FIELD terminal of the alternator. Again, you should have 12+V. Check if the Alternator fuse is blown.
