Noticed battery and brake light on my 01 montero sport lxs. Was told I need a new alternator. My car never died nor had a problem starting. Is there another reason for those two lights to be on?


As a first step to checking make sure your battery is full of electrolyte and give it a full charge to see if that causes the battery light to go out. The two lights may not be connected to alternator fault. If, when the battery is full charged, the battery light goes out and stay out you will have got to the bottom of the issue. You need to do this as soon as possible because the brake warning light is a major issur, If charging the battery cures the battery warning light but not the brake light then you have a brake problem.
If charging the battery puts both lights out and they stay out then it is probably as the garage argues.....there is no reason for a lrake light to go out if no brake work has been done.
You are o a path of investigation that must be carried out quickly in case the brake warning light is a valid warning.
Wouldn't drive too far or fast till you have resolved the matter


good luck

Car will not start when ignition key is turned. All warning lamps light up, enginee doesn't even try to start even with the clutch depressed


1. So the car was running normally and then on one occasion you put in the key to start it and all the warning lights flash up on the dash and the starter motor will not turn the engine over. Is that correct.

2. When you last drove the car were any warning lights appearing on the dash.such as check engine warning, engine overheating, electrical charging warnings etc.\

3. Has any work been carried out on the car recently.

4. How old is the battery in the car.

Warning light on bottom left of dash- circle with 3 dashes on left and right side of it. What does this mean?


It's an yellow warning indicator lamp. It lights when front brake pads are weared. Now it's time to replace used brake pads!

Unknown dash warning light. Almost full yellow circle with arrow head at one end. Anticlockwise direction. Open at the bottom. Exclamation mark in the centre.


It's similar, but not identical to the standard brake warning light (these usually have two circling arrows, one on each side). Check your brakes. The park brake may be on, or there is a fault in the brake system.

I think it's time for a rule requiring warning indicators to have a printed label as well as an icon. Too many people have trouble figuring out the hieroglyphics, especially when they don't follow a standard. Even if you don't read the language, you can look up the word on Babelfish. You can't do that with an icon.

Alt has a small red wire in the plug. what is it for


The circuit it forms part of runs from the battery, throug hthe charge warning light on the dash, the the voltage regulator on the alternator. The wire does two jobs.

When the alternator is generating output, it fails to carry any current (sounds odd, but that's how it is) because there's a similar voltage at each end. As a result, the charge warning light on the dash goes out.

When the alternator is freshly spun up, current flows through this wire (sourced through the warning lamp) to provide the initial excitation for the alternator, allowing it to generate electricity. One the alternator is working, it uses its own power to create excitation.
