You should get the charging system checked to make sure its properly charging the system or if it is charging at a lower voltage rate than it should be.with the motor running it should be charging around 14-14.5 volts.if the voltage gets to low(13-13.5) or to high(14.8-15 volts or higher)it can cause the light to flicker.also have the battery checked as a new battery doesn`t necesarely mean a good battery.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I am guessing you have an electrical issue somewhere. I have had the same problems with vehicles and it is a pain in the neck. It starts with one part and soon another and another. I would advise you to have it put on a machine. This is the best way to do so and it will save you time and money. If it is electrical, it can be hard to find. Check all your wires in the starting circuit. Make sure your terminals are cleaned and connected tight. Check your wires around the starter and the alternator as well. Make sure all your grounds are grounded properly. All your grounds are black wires. Make sure everything is hooked up proper. Sometimes, when we change parts, we can often forget a wire or hose. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.

My abs light will all of a sudden go on while im driving and then right after that i will loose all power on my car the battery is then completely drained its so dead it wont even click to turn over


If the battery goes dead while driving, that means that the "charging system" isn't doing the job. The alternator may be fine, but there's something not connecting correctly. Have a competent mechanic check the full charging system.

2004 sebring won't start at all


sounds like you might have lost the altanator. Check the battary to see if it is very low, if so it was running of the battery and not the altanator. try charging the battery and see if it will run. If it does, checkthe voltage on the battery. it should be above 13 volts when runnig.If not it is the altanator.

Yes that will be the alternator gone bad (Won't be chargeing)

to varify this just take the small wire off the altanator (NOT THE BIG THICK OUT PUT WIRE!)

And put it to the caseing of the engine and the battery lights will come on! thisprives it is the alternator at fault!

just make shure that the altanator is not rubber mounted if it is (rare) it will have its own earth to the caseing may have snaped will cause same effect but you would see it any way if it was!

Replace altanater if that all checks out. NO USE GUESSING MAKE SHURE WITH SIMPLE TEST LIKE THIS ONE!

Have a good one...................Bruce

I just put a brand new battery in my 1996 dodge intrepid and the battery light wont go off.


if the battery light won't go of after replacing the battery you have a bigger issue, chances are the altanator is not putting out enough voltage. I would have that check as soon as possible, that way you don't die on the road. when the car is running the altanator should be putting out 14.6 volts at all times, if it is below 13 then the altanator should be replaced.
