Without knowing more about your problem it's hard to say what the problem is. However the fact that the radio went off and the battery light is coming on would indicate an electrical failure.

Have you checked the alternator? Also, your alternator may be fine, but the leads that connect it to the battery can become corroded and cause a poor connection. I experienced this exact issue on a 2002 Chevy Grand Vitara, the lead connections on the back of the alternator just had to be cleaned.

My battery light blinks on and off in my saturn sc2. feels like it is not getting enough power.


Check the following: cable terminals for tightness, alternator output with the engine running ~14.2V, battery voltage with the engine stopped,~12.7. Also check for good ground connection of the battery and engine block.

No power in cig lighter


There is normally a 20Amp fuse that protects this unit. Check your fuse box for blown fuses. WARNING: If you remove power from the battery - then you may have to return to a seller to re-enable passwords to drive radios/cassettes etc; unless you have authentic manuals.

I think it means bad reception? No way to really know, the owners manual is useless.

Intermittent beeps


I get this when it loses the radio signal. I have to unlug it and remove/replace the batteries to reset the stations. You might also try hitting the weather/snooze button, listen to the quality of the reception and then move the antenna around to try and find good reception. These radios are picky about antenna reception location.

My vehicle is drawing power while off,


Common things are stuck trunk light or hood light.

Remove fuses for these and the radio and see if one of those might be the cause. Alarms are another common culprit.

One can put an ammeter in series with a battery lead to monitor while checking... DO NOT try to start however as you will blow the meter.

A very small current is normal for the radio clock and the engine/system computer memory.

New battery went flat


The battery was running the car's electrical system but not getting charged when the engine was running, indicating a problem with the alternator or charging circuitry.
