This light indicates that there is no or too little voltage being produced for the battery. Try cleaning the battery posts. If the light still comes on then have the alternator tested. Hope this helps. Good luck.

My 2006 Chevy impala light came saying check battery charging system went to start light comes on goes to start but dies right.., it won't stay running.., does this mean I need a new battery? Also the...

It means the alternator is not charging the battery.
The battery could have a dead cell, or the alternator could be faulty, or a wiring problem between the two components.
You would need to have the battery and alternator tested.

If the alternator is charging the battery, the light may mean the brake fluid is low.

The battery light and brake light appeared on and stayed on afte starting it this morning what can the problem be?

If the battery and brake lights come on it usually means that the battery isn't getting charged. Either the belt for your alternator broke, or the alternator is not putting out power to charge the battery.

What does it mean when your battery light comes on?

All cars have a battery light on the dashboard that is designed to warn you if the recharging system fails. A simple circuit looks at the voltage that the alternator is producing, and turns the battery light on if it is low. The battery light indicates a battery charging problem. If the battery light comes on and stays on while you are driving, the most common cause is a broken alternator belt. Total failure of the alternator is another possibility.

Abs light is on

This generally means that you have a problem with your brake system. I would try opening the hood and checking the brake fluid level on your Avalon.

The battery light stays on, i bought a new battery but the light continue to stay on.

When the battery light comes on it doesnt mean that the battery is bad,its a means of saying low voltage in the system,test the alternator-or replace it,but 1 way to check it is to hit it with a hammer lightly on a sturdy part of the caseing,then start it to see if the light goes out,its most likely the brushes bad.

Battery goes dead every few days it has a new battery and altnator i jump it every 4days but something draws it dead this is my 1st jeep its a 99 grand cher larado with a 4.0l any ideas what would cause it

Disconnect the negative battery terminal and put a test light between the battery and the wire. If light comes on fairly bright that means that something is staying on in the vehicle. Start to pull fuses till light goes and that will tell you which circuit to look for. Could be something like a glove box light staying on that you can not see.

Battery lights stays on

When the light comes on it means that there is a problem with the
charging system. Could be a number of different things. First check your fuses. Then the belt that drives the alternator for proper
tension. If you find nothing there then take it to a reputable garage
and have the charging system checked. Good luck. Neil W.
