The battery red light comes if battery voltage is low, if the battery is very old then get the battery replaced.If the battery is not very old then get the battery recharged and clean the batter terminals wit contact cleaner. ---------------- But mostly this light comes on when battery needs replacing.----------Thanks.

    Sorry but even if the battery is no good this will not cause the battery light to come on, the battery light is a warning of a problem in the recharging system.
    I have had many cars with flat and nonchargeable battery's and never seen the warning light for this problem.

Is that when the engine is running? If so It sounds like the alternator that charges the battery when the engine runs is faulty and eventually the battery will go flat. Alex

Red light on battery jaguar xtype

A red battery symbol on your dash indicates that your charging system detected a failure. Your car might be running and working fine but its probably because your battery is in excellent condition and you are running everything from your battery. Unfortunately, your battery will deplete and cause your car to die even while driving so be very careful and have your local shop check your vehicle for a bad alternator or similar criteria. Try not to drive your vehicle at night or with the A/C on until the problem is corrected.

Hello: If the red battery light stays illuminated with the engine running then the alternator may not be working.

2003 Cadillac CTS shuts off at red light.

Sounds like your alternator is not charging your battery. Probably a loose wire, battery cables, alternator wires, or possibly a bad alternator. Check all the wire connections. Check for a loose or bad alternator belt and have the alternator and battery tested.

Warning Light

On the Festiva, there is no amp meter on the dash, so you have to rely on a red light that comes on if there is a problem with the battery or charging system. The light is on your dash and has a + - sign on it, indicating that its related to the battery/charging system.
