Battery Alternator Visit Workshop Warning light on 2003 Mercedes Benz E320


If your lights for the battery and alternator are on it could very well mean that either your battery is no good or that your alternator stopped charging. If it has stopped charging, you have what's left in the battery to get yourself to the repair shop before you're on the side of the road.

My alternator workshop light came on while driving my car but it turned of again should i be concerned


Workshop light ?
You mean warning light ?
If it came on and then went off, it could have been a wet belt allowing the alternator pulley to slip.

Why won't my 03 ford taurus start


Who told you the alternator was fine? Sounds exactly like an alternator issue, fuel relay cant stop your dash gauges from working. An alternator should be putting out 13-14.5 wolts with the car running. Do you have any lights on the dash? like a battery light or anything out of the ordinary?

Why would my battery light be on and the alternator workshop message appear.


Hello there,
When your battery light turns on, it simply means the battery is working without it being charged. The alternator is not working and need to be replaced, as it is not charging the battery, that is why the battery light is on as well as the alternator workshop light.
Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp
