This means the connection is bad, you will need to replace the connector but also the connector must be bad to cause this, it may be a bad alternator if the connector is justed cracked alittle then it may be the alternator but if its broken apart then its the connector and needs to be replaced, you can try an auto part store or if they dont have it then the dealer will. good day

Battery light stays on and drains battery. Brand new battery, alternator and starter?


What is year--make--model?
If something wrong with wiring circuit, somewhere, replacing the part won't fix it.
Make sure charging system is working properly. To look up wiring diagram, I need vehicle info. The battery lite is on even with key out? Unplug alternator, see if light stays on, check the alternator wiring connector.

Battery keeps draining, turned off radio, nothing plugged in. Gets worse in cold weather


INTERMITTENT BATTERY DRAINS ARE HARD TO FIND. TURN OFF ALL SWITCHES IN THE VEHICLE. MAKE SURE THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT LITE IS GOING OUT. OPEN THE HOOD. CLOSE ALL THE DOORS. MAKE SURE ALL OF THE COURTESY LITES ARE GOING OFF. DISABLE ANY UNDER THE HOOD LIGHTS. REMOVE THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE. USE A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, FASTEN ONE END TO A GOOD GROUND, { METAL PART OF THE MOTOR} . FASTEN THE OTHER END TO THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY. IF THE TEST LIGHT LIGHTS UP THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. IF NO LIGHT , NO DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT IS ON LOOK IN THE FUSE/RELAY BOX NEAR THE BATTERY. PULLOUT THE FUSES, LARGE & SMALL ONE AT A TIME, IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT THE FUSE BACK IN TRY THE NEXT FUSE. WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT, THAT IS THE CIRCUIT CAUSING THE DRAIN. IF IT NEVER GOES OUT, DISCONNECT THE ALTERNATOR. IF THAT MAKES THE LIGHT GO OUT, THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE ALTERNATOR. IF THE LIGHT IS NEVER ON, YOU MAY HAVE TO DO THIS ANOTHER DAY TO FIND THE DRAIN. ALSO HAVE THE BATTERY RECHECKED.

Start the vech and take of the pos ternimal from battery and if it stays running means the alt is good but if it shuts down the alt may be U/S.Make sure everything is turned off.

Gas gage dont work, gas warning lite stay on, spedometer gage all the way 160, rpm gage also all the way, battery lite stay on, abs lite on, srs on, when the car is on or running. 1996 MB s420


That may be a sign of a bad alternator. start you car and take the positive batter cable off the battery. If the car dies replace the alternator. That is a really good sign that your alternator is bad.
