My 2009 Chevy Malibu just had a new battery put in within the last 60 days. Then I needed a new transmission. Got it fixed. Today my battery light comes on and stays on. What is this?


The light means that your battery is not being charged properly. It could be that when the transmission was replaced, they alternator belt was not put in properly or tight enough. I'd do the following:
1. Check battery connections to make sure they are clean and tight.
2. Check the drive belt to the alternator. It should be tight and not slipping.
3. If neither of the above is the problem, fully charge the battery with a battery charger so you can drive it for a while. Don't drive it without charging or you may get stranded. Don't let the battery run all the way down either or it may ruin it.
3. Check alternator output by driving to a nearby auto store or the place you had it repaired. They usually can check your charging system for free. The alternator could have decided to malfunction, although it's pretty new.
Good luck...

About 3 weeks ago, the battery in my 2001 chevy lumina died. I wasn't able to drive it for about a week and went out today to do so and the lights came on, dimly, and the car wouldn't start. The battery...


Well, I would charge the battery with a plug in battery charger for about 3 days to make sure it is fully charged.

If the battery doesn't take a charge, then I would replace the battery.

Make sure the connections are shiny, clean and tight at the contact points.

After the battery is charged, then I would have it tested for starting/charging at your local parts store or Sears or Walmart or other battery retailer.

Remember, batteries only last 3 years on average, so if charging it doesn't solve the starting problem, then I would consider buying a new battery for the vehicle.

Good luck on this repair.

What is the drive cycle or vehicle break in for 1999 Malibu After I changed the battery last week, I went to inspection today and failed


There isnt any drive cycle or break-in for a battery being changed out. You will need to take your fail slip to a service shop and see what caused the vehicle to fail inspection.

the monitors should have set by now. usually its around 50 miles. and a couple cold starts. i would have the computer scanned if the monitors have not set and youve driven quite abit more than this. we change batteries all the time and usually have all the monitors set in a couple hours.
