With the battery connected one by one remove the fuses again one by one and when you put it back in its place if you see a small arc that means there is a draw on the circut then you follow the circut be sure the ignation is in the off position

My 2009 Chevy Malibu just had a new battery put in within the last 60 days. Then I needed a new transmission. Got it fixed. Today my battery light comes on and stays on. What is this?


The light means that your battery is not being charged properly. It could be that when the transmission was replaced, they alternator belt was not put in properly or tight enough. I'd do the following:
1. Check battery connections to make sure they are clean and tight.
2. Check the drive belt to the alternator. It should be tight and not slipping.
3. If neither of the above is the problem, fully charge the battery with a battery charger so you can drive it for a while. Don't drive it without charging or you may get stranded. Don't let the battery run all the way down either or it may ruin it.
3. Check alternator output by driving to a nearby auto store or the place you had it repaired. They usually can check your charging system for free. The alternator could have decided to malfunction, although it's pretty new.
Good luck...

I havw a 82 Grand Prix with a 350 chevy truck engine ,recently my battery won't hold a charg (new battery ) i have cleand conections, checked fuses . any ideas thanks Rita


Put a volt meter across the battery terminals and check the output. You should be seeing around 13.5 volts at idle, no higher than 14. At idle with all accessories on, it should read just a bit lower but should not drop even after ten or so minutes. Your alternator has a built in regulator so when you get a new one, that's all you need. Also make sure the heavy red wire from the back of the alternator is secure at both the alternator and the battery (the extra small wire on the positive terminal) Any problems, ask me and I'll give you more if needed!!! Careful when checking the back lead on the alt...it's always hot when the battery is connected.

1988 chevy truck battery light flashes when going fast and stops when slow down


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!

I have a 1984 ford f150 with a new voltage regulator and perfectly working alternator but it charges at over 16 volts


a low battery in you meter could cause a higher reading. I've seen this before. Other than that the regulator is not working perfectly if its over charging or if you have a battery that will not hold a charge'

I just put in a new battery and alternator and my


First step is to check the voltage of the charging system. Should be around 12 volts when engine not running , 14 volts when engine is running.
If these test out OK then your warning light is the problem. Could also be a poor connection or broken wire at the alternator. Alternator must be grounded to work , but if it wasn't , the light would probably not come on.

you need to put a chevy alternator with a built in regulator on it.
You need a 3 wire alternator. Two wires go to the battery and one wire goes to anything connected to the ignition switch.
