Engine light is not switching off while driving

Run fault codes to find out what put the engine light on. Replace or repair asap as it is telling you that something serious has happened to the engine management systems. Check oil level and coolant level at the radiator. To ignore a warning light is an invitation to expensive disaster.

New batterey an new alternator still dies when i unhook pos cable

Where both rebuilt alternators any good
& retested at store?

Your explaining a constant voltage drop,
once the battery is hooked up.

How about the ignition switch?
Does that have anything to do with
the regulator control in alternator?

You haven't said you have 14 plus volts
with motor running,so basically you don't
have an alternator charging your new battery
& the ignition currant, even without the lights on,
is running down the battery

All I said is what you already know

I'm is missing something?

Don't unhook any battery cables with
the motor running,were not living in the 1960's

Those type tests will ruin many things on newer
vehicles, than yours,loose that practice & also avoid
jump starting any vehicle from 1996 on

I have a 5 series BMW and am puzzled by a very quiet electric motor sound that comes from very low on the centre consol behind the temperature display panel. It is not the heater fan motor. The noise is...

Have BMW do the diagnosis. The noise you're hearing is the "re-circulate fan". It's supposed to run for up to a minute after you turn car off. It re-circulates oaf through front vents/cabin filter. Trust me, you do not want to "operate" on that dash.

1996 vette has new battery running fine and now wont start

The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

Fan continues to run/Battery goes dead

Hi Scott,
The electric fan should run, for a few minutes or more depending on how hot the cooling system is. ( normal )
I would suspect that the problem is the battery, Or the terminals are corroded or loose. Have it checked under load, Any auto parts store will do it for free.
Heat and vibration are the most common cause of battery failure.
Unless you are constantly draining it all the way down, with a car stereo. or some other voltage drain.
The average lifetime of a battery is actually about two or three years, Less in hot climates.
Good luck and Keep those Jumper Cables handy till you get it diagnosed.
Regards paul
