The car computer system sometimes may require a period of two weeks to reset itself and clear the warnings, but if that is not happening, a computer a scanner that is usually used to scan for codes should be able to clear the lights off. this can be done for free in most auto parts stores like autozone. thanks

2012 Grand Caravan. How do I turn the battery light off after installing a new battery?


Test the alternator. The battery light is for the charging system. Once the charging system is working with the engine running, the light should go off. If your light stays on with engine running, the alternator may need service or replacement.

To test the charging system, just put a voltmeter on the battery with engine running. The voltmeter should register at least 13.5 volts- alternator is charging. If you only show battery voltage with engine running, like 12.2-12.8 volts, the alternator or charging system is not working. The battery light should be on to signify this.

Have an 07 f350 Ford pick up 6.0L power stroke .batterys replaced . Alternator replaced . Dash battery light still stays on no charge .soure voltage gd to alternator ,and plug . Reads gd voltage to si


I would try the regulator, there is a few tests to see if the alternator is charging, use a multi meter and check the b post on the alternator and earth and see what voltage it is producing, check all those sort of things and you will find the problem, make sure the battery terminals are very clean or they won't accept charge as well, hope this helps

Why is battery light still on after replacing alternator


charge lights work from a current flow either from the battery to the alternator or from the alternator to the battery. the opposing current flows will put the light out when each unit has the same voltage . So if the light is still on after the alternator has been replaced there are 2 checks to do . Check that the alternator is in fact charging correctly (dc voltage as well as 14 volts and next check is to see if the battery is any good and that the terminals are clean and tight. Best have it checked out at an accredited auto electrical shop.

Battery light on red.. replaced battery light still on


That battery light is a charging indicator. If the vehicle starts and runs, then the battery can't be the problem. The alternator isn't charging, replace the alternator. Have it tested first to be sure it isn't some other issue, but 99 times of a hundred, it is the alternator that causes that battery light to come on.

Battery light


The warning light should be on when the alternator is not charging the battery. Are you saying you had the charging system checked on the truck and all is well ?

The charge light came on: what's up? It still drives ok


The charge light comes on whenever the battery has a low charge.The alternator charges the battery.When this light comes on,it usually means the alternator isn't charging the battery.I would suggest having the alternator tested and replaced,if need be.

Bmw 2003 325ci coupe... i have just replaced the battery and the battery light is still on is this another fault or a faulty battery. Also every now and then the Yellow warning light on the dash for the...


Hi Stuart, the battery light indicates that the alternator is not charging. The alternator needs to be repaired or replaced in the case where the alternator is the problem. Before replacing the alternator you might want to check your fuses. It might be that one of the main fuses blew, causing the alternator not to charge. The traction control light will come on if it detects a problem with the supply voltage to the control unit caused by the alternator not charging.

Battery indecator light on on dash


Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.

Charging Light On After Replacing Alternator/Battery1999Windstar


Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.

To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.
