    Battery and Brake lights coming on. Lost power. Put in new battery still have the same problem.

    Brake & Battery dashboard lights come on and stay on during ignition. If I stop and restart the car, they don't come on again. 12 hours later, the electronics on the car started failing and the batter went dead. 24 hours later, my mechanic told me he'd need to replace the alternator.

    Went out to van one cold morning, would not start. $90.00 NAPA battery was less than 1 yr old. Replaced with new battery; one week later, same thing. This whole time the brake and battery light are faintly lit on dash, going on and off (it seems) with accelleration and braking. New battery was reading zilch on tester; had to replace AGAIN. Dealership ran diagnostics, alternator read at 14.2, which I'm told is good. Any quesses??

There has been known issues with the alternator on several year/versions of this car. If memory serves me right, there was a TSB for the alternator either over or undercharging.The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) specifies replacing the alternator and re-flashing the PCM.(Powertrain Control Mudule).

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.

Most likely, there are metal peaces on the break pad, for when the pads get wore down to a certain point they rub the rotor to let you know its time for new breaks.

this can be caused by a shorted cell in the battery, has the battery tested? and clean the battery cable's, corrosion can also cause this condition.

It's normal for belts to loosen up a little after installation. I'd check the belt and re-tighten until there's no slack. A slipping belt would certainly cause the issue you have. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck!

Brake battery light

If these lights are staying on then I would assume that the alternator isn't charging.

Get the charge rate checked and an auto electrician to replace or service the alternator

04 sedona belts moving slower when ac turned on and brake and battery light come on

is your car at an idle when the a/c is engaged it takes power to run this circuit your engine will slow down. most cars have a sensor that will increase you idle when a/c is engaged. this also compensates for the added drain on the alternator

Brake and battery light don't turn off.

1. Your battery is not charging appropriately (the alternator has gone bad)

2. Top up your brake oil or have your brake system checked.

But be sure to take the car for diagnostic scan too.
