99 chevy malibu alternator?

One day I was driving and first my battery light came on. 30 minutes later the abs light came on then slowly all the other lights started coming on, airbag, brake...then the spedometer and gas gage all stopped working then the cruise, all the accessories. Finally the brakes got tight the power steering went, i couldnt accelorate. the car died and will not start again. Could it be the alternator?

That is a very good place to start. You and remove the alternator, and most auto parts stores will check it for you.

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...

2002 chevy malibu abs light & battery light on


-Sounds like the alternator no produce enough power.
-Start the car and let it runs for 10 minutes to temperature then check voltage at battery. You should get 14.5 volt or +/-. It less then
13 volts. the problem is the alternator. Replace it or rebuild.

Good Luck.

I have a chevy lumina 99 and while driving it the red battery light came on and then the orange abs light came on, it still starts and runs but both lights are on.


Check alternator for output. With car running, voltage at battery should be 14-15 VDC. Suspect alternator has failed, and reduced voltage may have set the ABS light. Let me know if you have more questions.

check crank or cam sensor. a bad crank sensor will cause car to shut off while driving downroad. then will restart after 10 minutes. a bad cam sensor will cause simillar symtoms. but these should set a code. get car scanned for codes. if you do not have a scanner. you can go to any auto parts store and they will scan it for free of charge.
