The idling speed may be a little low or you may be having forewarning of an alternator problem developing. make sure the belts are tight enough. The idling speed on your car should be self regulating. Could be an idea to take it for a scan. could be that something in the management system is in need of attention. Regards Johngee

The altenator is bad. Not charging the battery and running the car. Once the battery drains the car will die. You can charge the battery and it will run untill it is drained.

It sounds like your alternator might be starting to go bad and the Battery Light is coming on because it is not charging the battery correctly. Have your Alternator checked with a volt meter, it should be reading 13 to 14 volts if working correctly. If not, replace your alternator.

Hi,dash lights came on and off then the battery now car wont open


Hi, it seems to me that the alternator stopped charging the battery and the battery run flat. If possible unlock the vehicle with the key and jump start the car. Check that the charging rate at the battery and at the output of the alternator is more then 13.4V but not more then 14.6V. If the voltage is lower or higher then these values you might need to replace the alternator. Just make sure that the main alternator fuse is still fine.

2002 mazda protege5 auto battery light coming on


I'm guessing that you've tested the actual current output of the alternator then. I'm assuming that the output is between 13-14Volts at the battery when the car is running... If it's too low, then it's not charging your battery at all, too high, and it's frying your battery.... Another thing that can cause this is if you have a short in your electrical system.. that, however, will be difficult to narrow down...
