Battery is charged - motor will not start.


Sounds like bad battery connections or ground. Brake lights on permanently may be draining battery also. Brake light issue may be switch at pedal out of position or adjustment.

1999 3.2l. Why are battery and brake lights on?


was not on before the new alt,? is alt new or used.?
or came on only after the new ALT?????????
my guess, is 2 failures.! (one ignored and 2nd grew)
on with engine running, guess yes.
Good question and is same answer on all cars.
1: engine rpm too low, what is yours (below 80 rpm)
2: fan belt slips. bad tension pulley (weak and old???)
3: Alt bad, or its wires bad.
4: brake level low, (@MC) or hand brake switch stuck on, or other brake failures. a plenty, scan the PCM and ABS if you have ABS.
id not drive it with the brake lamp on (Savvy?)
the battery light is really the ALT charge lamp.
it glows anytime the Charge system can not charge the battery
if you drive far like that, the engine will stall and not crank.

5: the horn fuse power the alternator, so check the horn fuse
10amp , key on, 12vdc on both sides of fuse is needed/
fyi: the meter fuse runs the charge lamp, if said lamp is dead bingo.
6: fact 2, the PCM does NOT run the Alternator on the 3.2L .
7: alternator case not grounded right.
8: battery is bad, causing alternator to drop off line
9: battery cables bad, at the 4ends or they are bad.
10: the plug on the rear of alt is bad or its wires or pins rusty.


brakes:
the brake lamp has 3 inputs ("OR" logic) master cylinder level low.
the hand brake lever and the EBCM (electronic brake control module)
a technician unplugs each to see what causes the error.
if you unplug mC wire and hand brake wire
then the EBCM is UNHAPPY, scan it.

Won't start lights on the dash flashing on and off no management light on


Sounds like the battery or the alternator
Usually has to do with the voltage regulator in the alternator.
That tells it where to put the power and how much output to put.
If the voltage starts to fail it will put the power to the most important parts which is the engine and it will make your lights flicker.

On a 1994 honda civic, the lights were left on all night and got a new battery and now there's no power at all, no lights and carr will not start again no power at all, what can the problem be ?


Make sure the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight, and the battery is fully charged, Leaving the light on will not harm anything only discharge the battery, sometimes a junction box is attached to the neg battery terminal for other cables make sure they are clean and tight .
