Why does battery dash light stay on after ignition and go off only after the headlights are turned on?
%REPLIES%. Answer . Hey John==Make sure the alternator belt is tight. GoodluckJoe. Answer . A Bad Diode in the Alternator will cause the light 2 stay on & still charg…e the bttery..
I'm not sure about all of these, but I have a 98 Taurus and the battery light came on. After a few days, the car died altogether and I had to replace my alternator. I would de…finitely take the battery indicator seriously and have your alternator checked.
Sounds like the alternator may not be recharging the battery properly Use a voltmeter to check A fully charged battery shoukld read approx. 12.8 without engine running S…hould read 13.8-14.2 with engine running with a good alternator Ford Focus 2001 - My experience with battery light coming on is the following: Put a volt meter on the battery if you get about 12.7 volts DC (Car Cold) or about 14.5 volts DC with the car running, your alternator should be fine. What you want too check is the fuse. In the fuse panel under the hood is a 10 amp fuse (red color) in position 10 (check your manual), if it is blown, that means your voltage monitor/regulator diagnostic module is suggesting it is not functioning. Replace the fuse should help. This also solved some stalling I had with the car, although I'm not sure why. .
Which light is staying on?
If your dash lights and radio are flashing on and off on your 2003Ford Windstar, you have an electrical problem that needs fixed. Youcan start by removing the dash and ensurin…g all wires are properlysecured.
The od light means that the over-drive is off. Pushing the little button on the shifter selector will turn it on (when the dummy light is not on) and off (when the dummy light… is lit).
It was my alternator, needed rebuild.
What causes a battery warning lite to flicker on after the car is shut off this is in a ford focus 04-the- light stays off when the car is running and car appears to be charging and running normal?
From your description it sounds as if the warning light is operating correctly. When the engine is running the battery is being charged and the electrical needs of the vehicle… are being fully met by the alternator's output and the battery is not expending stored power. When you turn the engine off the alternator stops running and anything in the vehicle that requires electircal power is suddenly dependent upon the battery to supply it. Thus, the battery begins discharging power, which triggers the warning light indicating that the battery is being discharged.
pull over let it cool and its supposed to go off, if not something bigger is wrong and needs to be fixed.
What would make your headlights stay on after shutting off the ignition but go out when you start the engine They will not come on when you push the switch on the dash?
I replaced the headlight switch on the dash and made sure battery terminals were clean and tight
Amber warning light on ford focus
\n. \nBad switch, somewhere, OR... a dorr is ajar.\n. \nThe Trunk Switch has a real problem with the Focus in that it is does not fully close due to dirt or corrosion. Sugge…st Synthetic grease with a brush all over the sliding parts. You will see 2 wires Black and Red leading to the Latch of the Trunk and these are the wires that the Alarm and Warning Light sense from. You might also have a problem with opening the trunk due to the same problem. Hope this helps.

The warning light will not come on because you have a separate oilgauge on the Ford Focus. This is the gauge that you should watchand it will show you that you are low on oil;… do not rely on thecheck engine light to alert you of it.

If the ABS light is on , a malfunction has been detected . It could be a fuse , a. sensor , or some other problem

You may need a tuneup, which consists of new plugs and wires. Could be the fuel injection needs cleaning, or several other things. Could be the fuel filter is clogged with cra…p from this inferior gas we're being forced to use. Fuel filter change is the least expensive. A "tuneup" (wires and plugs) is around $150, and NOT a recommended do-it-yourself job. The plugs are very fragile and you do NOT gap them.

1999 FORD RANGER XL THEFT LIGHT IN DASH BLINKS WHEN I SHUT OFF ENGINE AND STAYS ON AFTER I START IT. THERE IS NO HORN OR OTHER SOUND. WHAT DOES MEAN AND IS THERE A WAY TO SHUT IT OFF?
You have a problem with passive anti theft system. If it'sactivated light will flash when key is powered on but will notstart. It should never flash and start and engine stay …on. You needan auto locksmith to check the system, key halo, module and ecu.
