Replace your alternater or have it load tested first. It seems that it wants to put out 13 volts or over, but once a load is placed on the charging circuit, it just can't keep up.

What doese it mean when the battery light comes on then i turn it bk on and it wont start on my 2001 pt cruiser


The light means your battery is not being charged and the chances are its also very low on charge so may not turnover the engine for starting, the light should go out as soon as the engine starts if your alternator is working properly. battery light on because of one of these things. the battery needs replacing because its become very difficult for the circuits to charge it(dead cells eg more than 5yrs old). Your Alternator is not outputting charge to the battery( because belt has broken, or because alternator brushes are worn or because its just broken or one of the wires has broken or is loose.). use a voltmeter to check battery voltage is around 13 volts. just after starting an alternator will change the battery voltage to around 14.5 volts if the alternator is ok and after warming up should stay around 14 volts.

2003 bmw x5 4.4 battery light stays on


Brother Mark, changing the battery with a new one being done won't make the light go out, as you noticed. Light is still on so you changed the alternator. Good, but the battery light is STILL on. This only means that the charging circuit from the alternator is not working in the voltage regulator or the wiring is not connected properly to the alternator/regulator. A new battery will show over 13 to 13.5 volts not connected. An old battery will still show 12 volts and still be weak or bad. After connected and engine running, the system will show at least 14 volts because alternator/regulator is working properly, using a voltmeter/load tester connected to the battery. If after replacing the battery and alternator it is still reading 12 to 13.5 volts, it is not working and the light will stay lit on the dash. You may have purchased a faulty alternator if the system tests out this way. Have your system checked with a volt meter or load tester bit be sure all the connections are proper and clean.

Not sure about DTC but Diesel Bighorns have a real problem with cooking their alternators which present with similar symptoms to what you have described.
Hope this helps.

My 1998 isuzu will get jump started but wont hold the charge i thought after it runs for a couple of mins it should recharge it self wats wrong snl


If the battery is bad it will not hold a charge. Have your battery checked a the local parts house or your mechanic. Also have the charging and starting systems checked to insure they are working properly. Battery should have a reading of about 12.8 volts, alternator should be putting out between 13 and 14 volts. Starter should not draw to many amps.
