Check at the starter solenoid,the battery cable from the battery goes to a large post on the solenoid,there will be some wires,connected at the same post the positive battery cable is mounted,these will have some fusible links ,that look like wires,see if they will pull apart like taffy,if they do,they are burned out,just replace them,,,,,Also make sure the battery cables are hooked up correct,positive to positive,and negative to negative.Check all fuses under the hood in the fuse relay box,look at them good,like main fuse,and others.Make sure the negative battery cable is good,they are bad to go out.

The battery light indicates that your alternator is NOT charging the battery. Your alternator is not working; it could be one or more of several reasons:
1. the brushes may be worn out in the alternator that supply power to the field windings. This is a fairly simple and inexpensive fix for a do it your self job, but automotive shops seldom if ever will do this.
2. Other things like diodes or an open winding could be wrong with the alternator; in which case you should just replace it [and while you are doing so, replace the serpentine belt]. See video enclosed
3. The battery could be bad because of the deep discharge it has experienced.

2007 Saturn vue v6. The battery light and a light with a car with a wrench in it came on last night. It started this morning but then it died and now will not start. Is this the battery or alternator?


At this point maybe both. The battery light comes on when the alternator is not supplying enough power to operate the vehicle, and the battery is being forced to provide the difference. This problem, if not serviced, will quickly drain the battery. Replacement of the alternator is most likely needed. Be advised that alternator manufacturer/re-builder will not warrant an alternator that is installed on a car with a dead battery. So have you battery checked out; if it is good get it charged first. If it's bad replace it along with the alternator and you should have no problems.

Battery light on red.. replaced battery light still on


That battery light is a charging indicator. If the vehicle starts and runs, then the battery can't be the problem. The alternator isn't charging, replace the alternator. Have it tested first to be sure it isn't some other issue, but 99 times of a hundred, it is the alternator that causes that battery light to come on.

yes it could.If the alternator is bad your battery light should come on while running.when u replaced the battery it should have ran good for a minute till the alternator started draining draining your battery.Then the battery light would come on.I would replace it or have it checked.You can check it by starting it up and keep any elelectric off radio,lights,ect.then disconnect the battery if the car stalls its the alternator.the car would stay running with good alternator

We replaced the alternator and the battery and the belt tensioner but charging system light still stays on


There are two things that generally cause a battery warning after an alternator replacement. The most common is a loose connection either with the control plug (aka “relay” plug-in), charging line connection, or the ground. The other is a blown fuse or defective connector or relay, which could have been broken or shorted when the alternator was installed or on the first start-up after its installation.
You can check that the alternator is supplying enough power by starting the car and disconnecting the battery. If the car dies, the alternator isn't working properly (or a wiring/relay/fuse issue).

Car died while driving!can only jump start.dim lights ect


If all your connections are clean and sound, then your car should be able to run without a battery. Start the car and disconnect the negative terminal. If it stops your alternator is faulty. This would explain dim lights that are draining the life out of the battery instead of being alternator driven. Same as the dieing while driving, the battery can't keep supplying power forever without being recharged by the alternator.

If the alternator is ok, the battery needs replacing. Repeated draining of batteries kills them.

Replaced battery, light is still on


The battery light is usually an indication that the battery is not charging. This could mean your alternator is bad but sure to check the alternator belt tension carefully. If it is loose, it can make the alternator appear bad.

Battary light on , engine cut off car won't crank


sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.
