Have the alternator and battery checked.
If the alternator isn't charging, that would cause the light to come on.
If the battery is bad and not holding a charge, do to a weak or dead cell, that would also cause the light to come on.

When you power off the unit, it goes from bright led to low light led and shows a red light staying illuminated. Which means its STILL drawing battery. How do you turn it off completely?

Why does the Engine Warning light come up but other warning lights like battery, oil pressure etc.don't show up in ignition mode & the car doesn't start?


Sounds like a wire was not re-installed under the hood. When the alternator or battery were replaced, there are several power wires under the hood that attach to the same power terminal. Look for a RED wire with a large round connector, that is just hanging out in the open air. You need to install it back onto the post that it came off of. good luck.

Hit a bump on the road and the engine cuts out. No warning, no warning lights. Engine starts normally after that.


Check to see that your battery is secured. See if you can wiggle it. Make sure all battery terminal connections are tight, and all ground wires.

Car won't start. it tries to turn over, but just doesn't .battery replaced several months ago so it's not that. The red "GEN" light pops up. Is that the generator signal? Manual doesn&


Interesting. They haven't used generators in over 50 yrs.
But yes that was the warning light for the generator.
If you have a volt meter that would tell you what the system is doing.
If the engine will not crank, and the battery is fully charged, you would need to check the connections at the starter for voltage and ground.
And the red warning lights would normally come on until the engine starts.

Red battery shaped warning dash light on now car won't start no battery no blinkers


The battery ran out of power because the alternator is not charging it.
Have the alternator output tested and take a look at the fuses.

Warning Light


On the Festiva, there is no amp meter on the dash, so you have to rely on a red light that comes on if there is a problem with the battery or charging system. The light is on your dash and has a + - sign on it, indicating that its related to the battery/charging system.
