It illuminates signs in dushboard.what could be the problems


first check your battery and cables... a dying battery and/ or corroded, loose cables may be the cause all those problems

If you don't have the owner's manual, you can get a PDF file of it from a USA ford website: Google search 2005 ford focus owners manual

The battery light means bad battery, alternator, or wires

Oil light means low oil level, bad oil sensor or bad wire to sensor

Abs light, check brakes or wiring to speed sensors or abs computer

Orange check engine light, a sensor or other electrical part has failed or wire broken to that sensor. You will need an obd2 scanner to find out trouble codes!

But, if ALL OF THE LIGHTS ARE ON while car is running, you really need to check and make sure the battery and charging system is OK FIRST

My 1994 honda passport will not stay charged new altnator and new battery


is the engine running at 800 rpm or more.
if engine RPM is way low the Alternator will die out.
trans light , where is that? name it. exactly
lets focus first on the engine, and RPM
does the dash have a tachmeter, ? yes, then use that.
we keep a hand tachometer (optical , ready for no tach cars)
RPM is everything.... maxwells laws. and such.
1: rpm 800 or more all the time. rule 1, do not skip this.
2: belt to ALT not slipping'
3: battery good. terminals on battery cables tight both ends and
NOT PACKED in green corrosion, .
4: alternator case is grounded good.
5: The connection and ALT, all good.
6: you key on, and the dash charge light must turn on,
if not fix that now, on old cars, the dash light , causes the ALT to self excite, if the lamp burns out the alternator boots up DEAD.
or fails every other car starts. (does)
7: new alt is the wrong alt. zillion wrong ones, only 1 works.

Hi my car is a nissan maxima 96 went i am driving the breke light and the battery con on and of on the dash board


This is a real warning...I presume the lights come on at idle...and go off as you accelerate...The idle speed could be low...need a tune up...the alternator belt could be slipping, and the battery is not properly charging at idle...Have your alternator checked for free before you are stranded...Many auto parts stores do this test for free...Hope this helps.

is the alternator charging??if you have a battery charge light ..put ignition in start position..battery light should come on..if it dosnt the volatage regulator is shorted..if it does come on start engine..it should go off once engine has started.. buy a cheap dc voltage meter..radio shack 6.00 ..start engine,, get your voltage meter put red lead on battery positive black on neg.while engine is idleing it should read 13 to 14 volts..if you have a charge gauge on your dash check to see what your reading is..put headlights on at idle if it goes below 12 volts..its not charging..unless you have a short..then battery will lose charge overnight or after a few hours depending on short..that should cover most of it..happing hunting

When car sits a for a while it's hard to start and very low idle


my first ting to check would be battery, as since it is occurring when it sits for a while, then this would be the most likely source as the alternator charges the battery amd since the battery is low on charge, then this also causes the low idle

The dash lights keep coming on. The brake light,


This same thing keeps happening with my car. I've had the battery, alternator, alternator wore and plug changed, and the lights still keep coming on, and car keeps cutting off. I talked to someone today and they said it might be bad wiring or fuses so.... that may be it!

Sounds like a charging problem. When your battery runs low there is not enough current to operate the sensors properly. When you charged the battery it thought the system was fine till it gets low again. I would have your alternator checked and battery. Good luck and have a great day.

Car wont start after stalling on freeway


Check alternator voltage @ battery while car is @ idle, it should be charging @ 40 amps. Sounds like a voltage issue. I would start there.
