Possibly a short inside battery itself.....or some major powe draw that alternator can't keep up with suggest try another battery....see if it does it again trouble light may still light till it has time to reset so be patient but see if car stalls out again....light should reset over time if battery was problem

2003 Savana 3500 battery light is coming on intermittently. Sometimes van voltmeter shows 14 volts then sometimes it shows 11.5 volts. Is the voltage regulator internal should just replace alternator


ITS part of the alternator. Check it directly at the alternator if u can. It sounds like an alternator starting to go. Have it ckd if u can. It should be reading 14- 14.5 volts at the battery.

How do i know if it is the battery or alternator, if my 99 T&C dies after the battery light and other lights suddenly come on


It does not sound like your battary or alternator. BUT:
You take a 12 v0lt test meter and touch the Positive With tthe red probe and Neg with the black. Meter should read 12 to 14 volts .
Use this same method at the 2 wires coming out of the alternator with the engine running (Keep the cords clear) Push the probesw into the connector on each side. If car won't run remove both and take to your parts store for Free testing..

Sounds more like a short or serge to me.

Hope this helps. Best I can do with the info you gave. Mike

'06 Sedona battery light comes on. Low voltage indicated on radar detector. Battery was replaced ...2 days later the same problem. When battery was replaced, I unhooked batt connectors and van still...


It can still be the alternator, the alternator can produce enough to keep the car running, but it may not have enough to keep the battery charged 13-14 volts. It don't take long for a new battery to drain if the alternator isn't putting out the right voltage. Find a voltmeter and check the output from the alternator to see what voltage is being produced. If it's not at least 12.5 -14 then have the alternator checked out.

My battey light is on in my 1990 saab


HI:
The battery light means your car is running off the battery. check out your alternator,your alternator belt, and yor battery connections. Most auto parts stores will check your alternator for free!

Alternator and electrical problems ive changed alternator twice,now clicking noise under dash bat. light comes on and dash lights flicker


check all battey connections and system grounds. Check that the battery has 12v and holds properly when load tested. To check charging system, don't disconnect any battery leads...put a volt meter across the battery. when running, you should have at least 12.9v and volts should not drop. (usual reading is generally at or near 13) at idle with all accessories on voltage should be close to that as well. voltage should not exceed 14.Also make sure that drive belt is not slipping.
