I need to drive the car 70 miles home. I got in it today and started to drive. The electrical problem light was on. Do I dare drive it 70 miles?


by electrical problem light do you mean the charge light was on
If so check the drive belt for the alternator as it probably drives the water pump as well and if the water pump is not being driven you will over heat and damage the engine
if all the belts are ok and everything is working , it could be an alternator or an alternator fuse
IT takes 5 minutes for an accredited auto electrician to check the problem and if it is just an alternator and you do not have an electric power steering pump and don't intend stopping the engine for the drive , then the battery should get you home
If you have to use head lights then stay put and have it fixed

Red battery on dash


The red battery icon lights up if your charging system is NOT generating enough voltage. Everything that using electric current on the vehicle runs off of the battery power, which is supplied by the alternator/regulator. If your alternator is not working your battery will eventually drain and car will die (headlights will kill it fast). First thing I would check would be if the alternator belt broke. If so ,replace it. If not, your alternator may have quit and needs replacing. Alternator is like 2 or 4 bolts to take it off (easy stuff). Once you get the electrical system working again, be sure to let you battery get a full trickle charge, as not to cause you problems later.

What is an engine wire harness? Could it be responsible for my check engine light flashing? Could it have anything to do with the temperature gauge staying below C and running rough?


Your vehicle has hundreds of electrical circuits. The wires for these circuits are bundled together in what is called a wiring harness. The engine wiring harness is the bundles of wires that go to the electrical components of your engine.

Damage to a wiring harness can cause all kinds of electrical problems that can affect everything from how your engine runs (or fails to run) to how your lighting or entertainment systems work.

Yes, a damaged wiring harness could possibly be the cause of the problems you are describing with your vehicle. It could also be a lot of other things. That is what DIAGNOSIS is for. If your check engine light is flashing, it is because your engine control system needs to be diagnosed to determine what is causing the problem with your car that is causing the light to flash. The check engine light means pretty much what it says: CHECK YOUR ENGINE, or more acurately, your engine control system.

What does the "check gauges"


Your check gauges light can mean many things. Most of the time if the light comes on it means that one of the dash gauges is not within its recommend safe zone. Check all of your gauges and make sure they are all in the safe zone. If everything is in the safe zone then you may have other electrical problems which will only be able to be solved with the help of an automotive computer.
I hope this helps you out.
