The most likely cause is alternator failure, and will required alternator replacement.

I would assume it is the alternator, check all connections, including battery for corrosion. Autozone will check this problem for free and guide you to a solution with their equipment. I would start there.

Alternator is likely bad. Remove alternator and take to parts store for testing.

Check Charging System lite comes on. New battery, system tests good. Gage needle varies + to _. Turn ignition off, restart no system lite. What could cause this problem?


Hello and have you tested the voltage at the battery with a voltmeter should be right around 13.5 to 14.3 volts if it less then this at anytime the check charging will come on to tell you the voltage is low output to the battery witch if it does drop the problem is usually the voltage regulator. Also the reason if it is on and then you shut it off and restart the light goes out is because you have just pulled a bunch of power from the battery to start the vehicle so the regulator opens up to full charge to replace the power loss. but could be a problem once the voltage gets back to normal the regulator doesn't know what voltage it needs to maintain so it just stops charging instead if trickle charging

When i stopped all dash board lights came on and now wont start and has no power to anything


When vehicle stalls, the dash lites may come on.
Make sure battery has a full charge, battery connections all good. Make sure charging system is working properly.
Use a test lite and check voltage to fuse circuits in fuse box. Some fuses circuits are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. Right now, I can't tell if you have problem with battery--battery connections--charging system--fusible links--ignition switch or what? You need to do some testing. Let us know what you find?

2000 lincoln ls-check engine light is on+other electrical problem


One at a time
  • Check engine light is tripped by the #2 02 sensor. If the cat converter fails to clean up excess emmisions it turns on the light
  • Seat won't move- Chk for an obstruction in the tracks.
  • The alarm system-Watch itand wait for it to go off to make sure nothing is disturbing it. If it is motion sensitive, the cooking fan coming on can or may do it because of voltage chages when it kicks on.
  • Battery - check the charging voltage at the battery-- should be between 13.6 to 14.2 at an idle. This, if not righ, can cause the battery to not charge deep enough and can affect yor alsrm system. The battery needs to be 90% up to par to keep any electronics stable. Check for a draw on the batteryby removing rthe ground cable and watching for a spark when you touch it to the post. If there is a spark, something is on and and it needs to be located. Chances are it's the alarm system.
If your battery isn't charging correctly or is defective, The condition will affect the discharge rate. being it has no seep charge to start with.

change the drive belt and have the voltage regulator in the back of the alternator checked out and also check for any draws on the car anywhere cause this can cause the alternator to over charge trying to keep the battery charged up
