Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's service life and replacement will be necessary.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Sounds like plastic clicking when i accelerate in my 2000 ford taurus lx . Also the battery indicator light comes on and at the same time the temperature gauge goes haywire. What could this be???


Looks like you have an wiring issue.
Battery light comes on and stays on, indicate your alternator is not charging the battery.
But the light goes out and temp. light come on.
And im assuming the its not over heating.
you need to see an auto electrican to diagnose the wiring issue

My battery light and brake light goes on , some time goes off and on / I have a new battery and I change the altalnator


Check the battery terminals (where they are connected to the engine.) Those clamps can be loose or corroded. It happened to me and if i hit a bump or the road was bumpy, the battery cables would slide loose and the power would flicker or die completely
Open the hood when the car is off and try to wiggle the positive nad negative connections on your battery. They shouldn't move at all. If they're loose, tighten them up carefully. If they're covered in battery acid or corroded, then you may need new terminals for your new battery to connect well to your engine. Good luck, i hope this helps.

These lights will come on if your alternator isn't charging fully. With a multi meter test your voltage at the battery with the engine running. The voltage should be above 14 volts. If it is below 14 you will need to replace the alternator.
