Brake and battery light on new battery and alternator installed


Wouldn't be a fuse, but it seems as if the alternator is still not putting out normal power, or else your battery has a problem taking a charge. Better have the battery tested for a dead cell. also see what a voltmeter says about alternator output now. If you have an electrical problem in the wiring somewhere or in the alt. charging controls, then possibly one or more of the diodes in the alternator may got burnt out. That means the alternator puts out less power.
On some newer cars, the engine computer, pcm, controls the rate of charge of the alternator. So you have to be careful diagnosing -know how your system operates. That's why mechanics always ask for year, make, model, and engine size if applicable.

Then have the alternator checked out, this is probably your culprit; as the alternator slowly wears out, it will still send current, but not at the peak performance. if the alternator checks out fine, inspect wiring harness to make sure all connections are good.

Considering that it occurs more often with the a/c on, it is most likely a problem with either your battery, where it is too weak to sustain the engine output, or with your alternator. I advise checking your battery, and if that isn't the problem, checking your alternator. If neither of those seem to be the problem, its also possible that it is your torque converter, or a skewed setting in your ecu, both of which would most likely need to be checked by a professional.

Sounds as if your alternator is not charging the battery. The battery is the main source of your engine "spark". the alternator is across the leads to supply charging to bring your battery up to the 13.2 volts that is available. Of course the alternator will run your auto if it is producing voltage, i.e. jump start, or push start. It takes a certain voltage to run your computer which monitors the battery and if that voltage is not sufficent to produce the timed spark, (battery runs down), then the vehicle will not fire on all cylindars.

If the battery is not recharging while the car is running, bad connection between alternator and battery. If it is dying while sitting, but charging while running, something is draining it. What? Who knows. It could be anything from a clock on the radio to an engine fan that doesn't stop. Look for anything electrical that is on when the car isn't. ANYTHING. Even the smallest light can pull more juice than you'd expect. Good luck.

THE BATTERY LIGHT COMES ON TO ALERT YOU TO THE FACT THAT THE BATTERY IS NOT BEING CHARGED BY THE ALTERNATOR, IT DOESN'T MEAN THE BATTERY HAS A PROBLEM, HAVE THE ALTERNATOR TESTED FOR PROPER OPERATION.

Chrysler Sebring 2004 Convertible Bad Battery Charge Problems


I would look at the alternator. I had a grand am that would do that to me, even with a brand new battery. The alternator output wasn't able to run the vehicle and charge the battery. Alternators are picky things, especially being in Canada (which I assume from the KM), the hot and cold cycles don't play nicely with the brushes and core. I'd have the alternator checked and replaced if needed.
