Hi, Both my wife's warning lights have come on for the battery and brake system.both happened a the same time. 1996 mazda 121 1.3 litre


For some reason, some import models tie the two warning lights together.
The problem could be low brake fluid, or the parking brake is on, or the alternator is not charging the battery among other things.

Noticed battery and brake light on my 01 montero sport lxs. Was told I need a new alternator. My car never died nor had a problem starting. Is there another reason for those two lights to be on?


As a first step to checking make sure your battery is full of electrolyte and give it a full charge to see if that causes the battery light to go out. The two lights may not be connected to alternator fault. If, when the battery is full charged, the battery light goes out and stay out you will have got to the bottom of the issue. You need to do this as soon as possible because the brake warning light is a major issur, If charging the battery cures the battery warning light but not the brake light then you have a brake problem.
If charging the battery puts both lights out and they stay out then it is probably as the garage argues.....there is no reason for a lrake light to go out if no brake work has been done.
You are o a path of investigation that must be carried out quickly in case the brake warning light is a valid warning.
Wouldn't drive too far or fast till you have resolved the matter


good luck

2001 mitsubishi montero sport 4wd battery and brake lights are on.


I doubt it is the belt because if the belt is slipping you should hear it.
The alternator could be about to crash and not charging at lower speeds.
You would check alternator output to find out.
The battery and brake warning lights are on the same circuit.

Warning lights stay on


Hi,

Brake light warning indicates possible low brake fluid in the reservoir;

Charge warning light indicates battery not charging which can be caused by defective alternator/regulator, slipping belt, corroded fusible link from alternator to battery B+ terminal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
