There's no reset for a battery light (alternator), check voltage at battery with engine running, that will be alternator out put voltage, should not read less then 13 volt's, also check voltage at back of alternator, on the big wire, should have no less then 13 volts also, if voltage is less then 12.6 volt's there, bad alternator, will have to be replaced again, if voltage is good there, but not good at battery, check for bad fuse or fuse link, hope his was very helpful.

Your battery has failed. Be sure to check for the alternator not working to charge the battery. If your battery is 5 years old it's bad.

Headlights don't operate correctly. inconsistantly dimming or going out.running lights going off & on during day driving.Replaced one headlight bulb, didn't solve anything. fog lights,turn signals,...

Your charging system appears to be fluctuating. May be time for a new Alternator. OR You have a poor battery connection affecting the alternator.

2005 Equinox will not start

Okay...not sure by the description....if you have noise while turning the key and it is clicking....bad starter. If you have NO power at all like a completely dead battery and you have to jump it, then the battery is either going dead or your alternator is not keeping the system charged. You can go to almost any parts dealer and they will test the battery, alternator, and starter for free.

Do you have any noises when you try to start it?

Radio will not shut off until I open and close another door

The theft light coming on is normal. Also, the radio will stay on for about 10 minutes after the key is removed and you do not open the doors.
