The surpinetine belt is slipping on the alternator. A high pitch squeal can sometimes also be heard, because rain water is making the worn belt slip. So replace the belt first. Other possibilities are the idler tensioner might be weak, or worst case is the alternator itself. Also check if your battery cable connections are clean and tightened, because the battery may not be getting a proper charge.

John Mark, you just saved my sanity. I heard that high pitched noise this morning while driving my kid to school in the rain, then the battery light came on.
Thanks to you..

Runs poorly when its wet outside

Sounds like your distributor cap is loose. It's likely getting water in it when you drive through water.

Losing power when it rains

If only when it rains, you are looking at an insulation or wiring issue.
Check the heavy battery wires for any signs of splitting or poor connections. Also check the engine to body earth strap.

Battery light on 2006 Kia Sportage

Check the voltage coming out of the alternator with engine running it should be 13.0-14.7 volts.Usally when the battery light comes on the voltage is to low or not charging.If voltage is below 13.0 volts or higher than 15 volts then the alternator is faulty and will need to be replaced.

1997 Toyota Camry LE. During wet weather, water

Most of the problems come when its raining and if its not being driven and water still comes in then its the bonnet rubber and if when its being driven then its due to the rear wheel throughing up water under wheelarch and somewhere theres a crack in the weld or somewhere and it will find its way in..
So if not using it clean it out and when rain stops look inside no rain no leak Have a goodday

Check engine light on

The new sealed batteries fail without any warning, drive to the store, come back out the battery is dead, the other issues you have are caused by low system voltage, replace the battery and all should be well.
