Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country
Posted by Anonymous on
There is a reason these were originally called 'idiot lights' because they don't tell you much.
Normally however, that light is telling you that the battery is no longer being charged or cannot accept a charge. If you have a chain auto parts store in your area, call them and ask if they do free alternator and battery checks. They mostly do since they sell both of those items.
I would also recommend while you are there, look at the digital multimeters they stock. If they are under $20 US, you might buy one for future problems; they are very useful for quick auto and home electrical checks and simple to use even while the translation into Chinglish is sometimes amusing.
If you use eBay, you can find an even cheaper multimeter there.
Checking only across the battery terminals will show if the alternator is functional since they typically put out well over 12.6 volts even at an idle. However, a bad cell in the battery can also drag the voltage down but will generate considerable heat in the battery.
