At this point,I'm afraid that you have to take your vehicle to a reputable repair shop to verify that both your altenator and battery are functioning properly(It's not unheard of to buy faulty parts).If both the Alt and Batt check out good,then you are looking at a wiring short in the system somewhere.A Chiltons manual will help you narrow down your search radius.

Hello If it looks like a battery then most probably one of two things. 1- You have a bad battery. 2- You have a weak alternator that is not functioning properly and can not keep up with the car needs. You should check the alternator charging value and then check the battery. You could do that at any shop that has the Battery/Alternator testing tool. Hope that helps

Charging problem

Check that the alternator belt is well in tension, there is a tensioner, is the arm that move the pulley, you may need to use a rubber hammer to put it well in tension.
Check also the alternator wirings and the connectors.

Warning lights stay on


Brake light warning indicates possible low brake fluid in the reservoir;

Charge warning light indicates battery not charging which can be caused by defective alternator/regulator, slipping belt, corroded fusible link from alternator to battery B+ terminal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
