Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Cold weather, turn on ignition and all lights very dim. I drove a mile or 2 and then check engine, ABS, and another warning light came on. Car died. We jumped it but it won't keep the charge and continues to stall. we can't get it started without the jump, but the minute we disconnect, the volts drop. battery only 2 years old...bad battery or something more serious?

Sounds like a bad alternator, engine will only run till battery goes weak, due to alternator not charging system, any auto parts will check your charging system at no charge, hope this was very helpful.

2003 Cavalier. Battery warning light came on


Check for bad connection to the battery. Use a volt meter to check voltage from alternator to the battery, should be 14.5 volts to 15 volts. If you have anything less than that then look for a bad alternator wire from alternator to battery. Also check for a good ground connection to the battery. Do all the testing with everything off inside the car so you will not have a power drain from the system. hope this will help you.

All lights are supposed to turn off when a subaru key is off right? No! There is a switch on top of the steering wheel column that will turn on lights for warning when parked. You somehow have hit that switch.

BMW 325xi; 160k; check engine light on-->next day, wont start!


I would try to jump it to see if the starter engages and the engine runs, if it does you have a connection problem between the engine starter and the battery, if it does the same thing with cables then you will probably have to tow it in to the shop. I do not think your problem is related to cold weather, but it could very well be related to the check engine light. Exactly what the check engine light is on for I can not say with out a code, but I agree with your thinking about taking it to the shop. Hope this helps, let me know.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!
