My battery light has been coming on and off for a couple of weeks now and saying "Service Battery Charging System".


Have your charging system tested. The battery light is turned on when there is a charging system problem causing an over/under charge condition. You may possibly have an alternator problem. If the battery is not being charged properly, the computer will start shutting down electrical components for protection and to keep enough voltage supply to enable the vehicle to continue running

What does it mean when the service charging system light comes on?


Your charging system has failed or is beginning to fail. Most likely it is your alternator beginning to act up. It could also be a battery that has a bad cell and the computer is seeing a much higher charge rate than normal. Most charging systems are controlled by the engine ECM today so the output is monitored all the time. You will need to have a complete electrical system diagnostic to locate the reason including having the codes retrieved from the ECM if any.

1993 cadillac. I'm having trouble with the charge light coming on, only at night causing the headlights to go off and on. been pulled over 3 times now. The battery is new, had alternator tested and te


Could one WHAT be overcharging the other WHAT???

To understand the problem you must first understand that the car runs off of the BATTERY. The job of the alternator is to replace the power that the car uses back to the battery. The car DOES NOT operate off of the alternator (many people do not get this). The charge light comes on when the charging voltage from the alternator is lower than the voltage that is available at the battery posts (that is why the charge light is ALWAYS on when the ignition switch is on but the engine is not running.

If the CHARGING SYSTEM had been PROPERLY tested, you would have seen this in the tests. If you removed your alternator to have it tested, this does not test the charging system in the car.

This can be caused by a failure or high resistance in ANY PART of the charging system. This includes not only the battery and the alternator, but also all of the connecting cables, wires and the ignition switch.

If the battery and alternator are both good, then the problem is most likely a loose or badly corroded battery cable. However, high resistance in the ignition switch circuit to the alternator can also cause this type of problem. The charging system in your car needs to be PROPERLY tested to pinpoint the location of the fault.

DASH READS REFRIGRANT VER LOW CORESSOR OFF


This is telling that it needs to be charged with Freon, so compressor automatically turns off, as to save unit as, if no Freon, no sense having compressor run. You need to have it charged with Freon, and have system checked to make sure no leaks at same time.Almost any service center can charge system and check to make sure no leaks, then compressor should come on and work fine. Thanks Mike

The "service charging system" message


Hello,

" service charging system ", means you have an issue with your battery, your alternator, or
your voltage regulator. Something is causing your battery not to charge properly. You should
have it checked as soon as possible. This could keep your vehicle from starting next time.

I hope this helps you.

If it continues have system checked by service station.The check charging system could be temporary until Battery is fully charged.If this caused any damage I would be suprised, we all have had battery drains from time to time.Good Luck.

"Service A/C" dashboard light


This light indicates the AC compressor is turning off and on (cycling) to often in a set period of time, this is caused by a low system charge, you need to have your system checked for leaks and then topped off, in most cases the light comes on before the system stops cooling.

Service message for alarm system


The message is trying telling you that the system has a fault and most likely the control module has disabled the system. After the problem is fixed the message will clear. You can have the system tested by Volvo to see what part of the system has a fault, most likely they will charge about 1 hour labor time.
