Check the voltage at the battery with the engine off. Then check the voltage with the engine running. It should be at least 1 volt higher than with engine off. If both voltages are the same, then the alterator is bad,

Battery dead 2 mornings this wk, battery 2 yrs old checked out good, dashboard light says trunk open but not, Could this drain battery or maybe sensor is bad?


Check the switch of the trunk light if it's shutting off when the trunk close. The indicator light on your dashboard says something's wrong. Although the trunk bulb consumes small power when switched on (i guess it's only 5W), but draining out the battery power depends on how long the vehicle hasn't been started to re-charge the battery.

1997 bmw 328i dash lights all lit up at once and after several minutes they faded, and eventually the headlights and dashboard lights dimmed.


Alternator. Have it tested with a voltmeter while on the car and running. Or take it off and have it tested. The current to run the car and the accessories is from the alternator when the engine is running. The battery light coming on alerts you that the alternator is not doing its job.

2000 Saturn LS1 dashboard battery light


the light is across one diode in the rectifier pack in the alternator, usually there are 9 of them, one of yours has failed, probably the failed diode is leaking current and draining the battery. In this instance the battery will be good (if drained) and the other 8 diodes will show a good charge.Get the current drain checked with everything switched off

its not charging, check the belt that drives your alternator, your fuses, check for some loose connections at the back of alternator, if the light stays on while the engine is running, replace your alternator. good luck!
