Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Battery light alerts when car is driving

The battery light alerts when after the car is driving for 3-5 minutes.
The battery and alternator were check at normal values per the dealer, however the light still remains lit even after a new battery was installed.
Old Battery =12.05 volts New Battery =12.02 volts
I was advised that trouble shooting the cable bundle between the alternator and battery would be another choice at a high cost as a possible solution. (That is not a very good option)
Please advise how to resolve this problem. Thank you very much.
Best Regards

The thing that sucks about the Sebring, I have a 2001, is that if there is a problem and your car detects it 3 times, it will stay programmed in the onboard diagnostic, even if you have repaird it. The only way to have that little light go out, is for someone to reset the onboard diagnostic computer with the fancy machine code reader that only the shops seem to have. So, have it reset.

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

Battery dashboard light stay on when driving


The light is on to alert you to the fact that a problem has been detected in the charging system of the car. You need it checked by a professional to determine what that is.

I have lost all power to my vehicle while driving. What could this be?


It is possible that you had enough battery power to get started but once running you were essentially using the alternator and eventually it gave up. The reason why a boost did not work is that your battery probably is very dead

Alternator. Have it tested with a voltmeter while on the car and running. Or take it off and have it tested. The current to run the car and the accessories is from the alternator when the engine is running. The battery light coming on alerts you that the alternator is not doing its job.

More than likely your alternator is bad and not keeping the battery charged up, plus you may have an electrical draw somewhere in the vehicle draining the battery also. I would check out the alternator first. Good luck.

2000 jetta has multiple alternator and battery failures


In my case, the instrument cluster was bad, causing the MFI display and radio to go haywire and putting a contstant drain on the battery. $760 to have the VW shop replace it. No problems related to the battery or alternator have occurred since.

Good luck.

Either you threw a belt or the alternator went bad. Your symptoms sound like alternator...you were running on the battery till you ran out of power.
