SOURCE: "battery not charging"

first when was the last time the drive belt was replaced? replace the drive belt first then have the alternator tested if the belt did not help the problem

SOURCE: Battery not charging message. Took battery to have

Most likely you have a bad alternator. The alternator maintains the the charging system. you have the option to remove the alternator and take it to the parts store and have it tested too!.

SOURCE: warning message and battery light

Sounds like you have a bad alternator. His car was what was keeping your going by supplying the power. When your alternator goes out, the car will only run off of the battery until that has drained enough to not operate all the electrical systems. The battery may still be good. You will have to have it charged and tested to be sure, but you may have to replace it as well.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Hello: The RFA stands for the Key Fob That you use to lock?unlock your doors. RFA stands for Remote Function Actuator.. Replace the battery. Go to Auto Zone and they should have the battery and probably not charge you to replace it.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.


Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

Noticed battery and brake light on my 01 montero sport lxs. Was told I need a new alternator. My car never died nor had a problem starting. Is there another reason for those two lights to be on?


As a first step to checking make sure your battery is full of electrolyte and give it a full charge to see if that causes the battery light to go out. The two lights may not be connected to alternator fault. If, when the battery is full charged, the battery light goes out and stay out you will have got to the bottom of the issue. You need to do this as soon as possible because the brake warning light is a major issur, If charging the battery cures the battery warning light but not the brake light then you have a brake problem.
If charging the battery puts both lights out and they stay out then it is probably as the garage argues.....there is no reason for a lrake light to go out if no brake work has been done.
You are o a path of investigation that must be carried out quickly in case the brake warning light is a valid warning.
Wouldn't drive too far or fast till you have resolved the matter


good luck

Test the alternator out put.. First check battery for voltage.. should be 12v or slightly better.. Start engine and check the battery again.. and it now should be 14= VOLTS.. IIF ITS NOT 14+THE ALTERNATOR IS POSSIBLY BAD.

Battery not charging car is dead and will not start


Starting with the battery light, the warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. It could be a faulty alternator, or a problem with the wiring between the battery and the alternator.
Normally you can drive a vehicle for several miles on the battery alone.
If you have charged the battery and it checks out ok, you would need to check the wiring from the battery to the alternator and to the fuse box for problems.

88 Izusu Trooper II with 274000 miles Battery warning light comes on when first starting and running- after driving awhile, it goes off and starts charging- also during the warning period- the blower


Sounds like your battery isn't charging properly, first thing to check, is your alternator belt slipping, is it tight enough, if so does it need replacing?

Next the battery, if its over 2 years old it could be on its way out. Does it hold its charge?

Finally, Alternator, is it still providing a charge for the battery? Are all electrical connections good and clean?

Battery warning light was on this morning , and for several miles altrnated between being on and off. After several miles it got dimmer and finally turned off. Car seemed to run all right though.


Replace the battery. The batter is on it's last leg and is about to die. The reason the light went off is because as you drive, the alternator provides charge to the battery. So the further you go, the more charged the battery becomes. That said, if the Battery warning light was on when you started the car, and you had not left any interior lights on over night, then the battery is losing charge rapidly or is not holding a charge.

Absolutely i would put a voltage meter tester on the battery terminals with the vehicle running you should have a reading of 13.29 to 14.29 anything lower would indicate not charging efficiently

Low battery light comes on, then goes off, followed by the seatbelt light to start flashing. Took for a drive today, same thing happens, then all other warning lights come on and car just goes dead in...


It sounds like your battery is not charging. You may have a good battery and a good alternator but what you need to look for is the alternator fuse . It is usually a square block style fuse , 50 to 80 amps, normally in a fuse box under the dash. If it blows the car will drive till it runs out of battery juice and go bonkers just like you describe right before it dies. The charge light on the dash usually will not warn you of the problem. I think the manufacturers just want to charge you big dollars just to replace a fuse most people are not familiar with.
