Alternator and stator....put a voltmeter on the battery - it should read about 12- 13 volts. Then start the bike.... when its running, the volts should increase.... if it doesnt....your charging system isnt working.

1994 Trooper. Stopped at red light. Suddenly all the dash lights come on and then goes off and vehicle dies. Won't start. Would the problem be the alternator?


Well the only thing the alternator does is keep the battery charged.
It would not kill the engine unless it locked up and would not allow the belt to turn.
Is the battery dead when it will not start, or will it crank and not start ?

Red charge light keeps blinking. does that mean the battery is dead?


Your user manual should provide some info. If not, consult with Radio Shack direct. I'm not familiar to this product so I can't tell you if the charger is defective or the battery needs replacement.

Battery charger red charging light blinks once then goes out


Do the batteries charge? Are they charged? The green indicator normally is the status signal that the battery is charged and the red indicates that the battery needs charging or is charging. If you plug in a charged battery, some chargers will flash red momentarily then go out. This is an indication that the charger checked the battery (red light) and if the charge is good, the red light will go out. I hope this helps you.

Bluetooth wont charge or power on. when charging the red light comes on. once disconnected from charger it wont come on


Indicator Lights:
1.Headset Status Headset Indicator Light
2.Powering on Steady blue, then intermittent flashes
(changes to standby mode)
3.Powering off Red appears and goes off
4.Standby Blue intermittent flashes
5.Charging battery Red solid light. Light indicator turns off when
battery is fully charged and headset is off.
6.Low battery Triple red flashes
7.Pairing mode Blue/red alternating flashes
8.Missed call Purple flashes. Press the call control button
to cancel flashing light.
9.Incoming call Triple blue flashes when ringing.
Power on and off:
1.Turn on the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows blue. You will hear ascending
tones.
2.Turn off the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows red. You will hear descending
tones. When power is off, indicator stays off.
If none of this is helpful then it may be that your battery is dead, if that is the case then you will need to replace the whole headset. The battery's are not replaceable.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

Battery goes dead but when checked they say its still good but needs charged. Charge it and it goes dead again


Did they check the alternator? You also might have a drain on your battery. You can remove the negative cable from the battery, take a test light and connect one end of it to the battery (negative side) and touch the other end to the negative cable you removed. If the light comes on then you have a drain on your battery. You could then pull fuses one at a time until the test light goes out and that one (system) is most likely your problem.

Red battery warning light


Have the alternator and battery checked.
If the alternator isn't charging, that would cause the light to come on.
If the battery is bad and not holding a charge, do to a weak or dead cell, that would also cause the light to come on.

Battery went dead,charged it back up now it won't stay running and a red light with a key comes on


if the battery goes stone dead on these vehicles, your anti theft module (SKIS module) loses its programming. unfortunately, the only way to fix this is to have the vehicle towed to the dealer an reprogrammed. call your local dealer and consult them on their particular procedures. good luck!

Seems to charge but then wont come on


Sounds like you bought a defective battery
You can test for this by removing the battery and holding the power button for 15 seconds. This will restart the charging cycle as if the battery were new. If it still goes red get a refund and a new one.
