unless it is an add on after the car was made it quite possibly is for the day time running lights. because the lights stay on i would suspect it is a relay for the headlights located in the fuse panel near the battery. feel the tops of them if you don't have a diagram... the one that is very hot is the one. there is a chance that the daytime running lights module has failed tho they usually do not come on at all when that happens

SOURCE: no dash lights, no power

It goes straight to the mains fuse box on the firewall inside the engine bay and from there to the battery.
But if you smelled burned then it has surely fried other wires - you will gonna have to cut the loom open, find the shorted wire, inspect all the wires around it and replace the shot ones.

The first thing you need to do is stop wasting your money by replacing parts. Then get a volt-ohm meter and a test light to test the circuits between the battery, the alternator, the ignition switch, the starter relay and the voltage regulator. (a.k.a. Charging System Circuits)

To start, the "B+" or "BATT" terminal on the alternator (large black wire) MUST have a solid, direct connection to the battery. Check for the proper voltage here. Then, the red wire on the alternator at the "F2" terminal should be HOT at all times. If not, you probably still have a bad fuse link that you missed. The "F1" terminal on the alternator (Light Green wire) is known as your "FIELD" wire. It comes from the "IG" terminal at the voltage regulator. It should be hot any time the key is in the ON position. If not, your voltage regulator is not working or your ignition switch is not providing power to the regulator. Finally, The "F" terminal (Red wire) at the regulator should be hot any time the ignition switch is in the ON position. This actually gets it's power from the starter relay, which gets its power from the ignition switch.

Brake light, battery light, service engine soon light on. white smoke from under the hood. area near belts loud and I smelled burning rubber. put car in park the engine shut off. What's the problem?


If your battery light came on, and you smelled burning rubber, it could be that your belt that drives the alternator, which charges your battery is broken or flipped upside down. Do not drive with the battery light on or else you will stop dead when the battery does not have enough charge in it to keep the car running. If you decide to drive and not follow my advice, then be sure all extra electrical power is off eg. radio, fan, DVD, lights etc.

Car dashboard lights wont turn on and smell of burning wires


If you're smelling insulation burning - STOP. Fuses should be blowing before insulation melts / burns.

Have the car checked my a trusted mechanic before using anything in the car that makes the wiring burn or melt.

Sounds as if you have a short draining the battery overnight. Take the battery negative off and run a 12volt test light between the terminal and the ground post on the battery. leave the key out of the ignition switch. see if there is a dim or bright light glowing in the test light. If either one is the case start pulling out your fuses and watching the light until the light goes out. When it goes out y have identified the circuit your short is in. ( headlamps, door switches, ect. ) Make sure to put each fuse back in the proper place so as not to burn anything up!!!!. By the way , you did NOT keep the positive battery terminal off to see if the alternator was charging did you? If you did you just burned up your new alternator,which by the way will give your battery a direct short to ground through the diode trio in the alternator, thus causing the battery to very quickly drain. and Why should you have to jump start a NEW battery? Check to see if you are lucky enough to have a charging fuse, if you did the positive off while running thing that fuse could save you if you have it.

Battery Light still on


The new alternator is probably ok.
I would say you burned a fuseable link in the wiring harness.
The alternator has a fuse wire between it and the battery to protect it from overload.
Have someone check the wires coming out of the back of the alternator. The big wire should have battery voltage, the small wires energize the alternator when you start the engine.

My asb light comes on when starting and stays on. Lights won't come on , power locks won't work, power windows won't work, radio won't work. All fuses are good and car runs fine.


Those are all really common symptoms of the alternator going bad on those cars. I would have it checked to make sure it's charging properly.

The first thing to do is have the battery tested, just because you charged it doesn't mean it will stay charged if the cells are sulfated up or shorted.

2001 lincoln navigator battery drain


Did you check for B+ voltage at the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator ? When yor turn the key to run , not start , does the charge indicator light ? When the vehicle is running is that charge light lit or off ? There is a fuse that supplies B+ voltage to it . Fuse # 30 located in the central junction box , it's a 30 amp fuse ! Plus one more fuse located in the battery junction block # 11 20amp . With out B+ voltage at these connections on the alternator it will not charge .

Battery light came on in 01 dodge neon and now after swapping battery there is a burning smell. What could it be?


You have a problem in the battery charging system, a battery light has nothing to do with any problem with the actual battery, it indicates that the part called the Alternator that charges the battery and supplies power to the car when the engine is running may have a problem (other things can cause this light as well). As far as the smell goes it may be overcharging the battery, but it may also have an electrical wire or component over heating, this is a possible fire hazard. Please have the battery charging system tested for proper operation ASAP to avoid further damage to the electrical system.
