triple diodes in alternator are bad
It's not charging the battery. Check the alternator.
Alternator is not charging. Have it tested and/or replaced.
You might have a bad battery, a poor connection between the battery and alternator, or a bad ground from the battery.
you need a new alternator
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt. If the battery and alt test ok than check the connections to the alternator and battery.
possible battery drain, either bad wiring or alternator issue.
That would tend to indicate that the alternator was not charging the battery for that interval.
alternator. go to a parts store and have them test the charging system. must will do that for free
it indicates that the alternator is not functioning sufficiently to keep the battery charged.
its the alternator if the car is running with a battery light on. but check fuses first
When this light stays on, it is telling you the system is not charging. Possible bad alternator, battery, or loose or disconnected wire.
yes if one of the wires was getting an earth from the alternator cover or rubbing off the engine the battery light is really an alternator light warning you that the alternator is not charging the battery
If the alternator belt is tight, the alternator may be at fault.
Usually when the battery light comes on its the Alternator, or a bad wire from Alternator to battery, but id check Alternator first.
test the voltage on the battery first, then on the alternator. If its good then it could just be the diode in the alternator. I would suggest you replace it becuase eventually your alternator will die and the battery will not get charged leaving you stranded somewhere. It is possible to just be a battery but you wont know unless you have the battery tested. check the voltage on the battery and the alternator before you do anything else.
There is no problem...the problem was the alternator. You have fixed the problem.
If it stays on there is a problem with the charging system. Most likely a defective alternator.
alternator is probably not charging. you need to fix this NOW. new alternator is likely the only repair.
No.... You need to change the whole back tail piece
That is typically caused by a faulty alternator. Have the alternator tested; the light is indicating that the alternator is not providing a charge to the battery.
No. If the alternator is working fine, the battery power is not used.
