Mine was doing this also and stalling bad. I found a broken vacuum line going to the DPFE sensor. The problem came back several weeks later. I cleaned the connections to the DPFE and MAF sensors with contact cleaner. Replaced the DPFE sensor, and found I had a broken clip on the MAF sensor connector (probably the actual problem. If you aren't getting enough air flow, or the computer thinks you aren't from bad sensors or connections, it adjusts the mixture leaner.

What would cause the GEN light to come on on a 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel?

When your 99 VW Golf is stationary the headlights seem to loose brightness intermittently Anyone know of this problem?

It may be the result of a malfunctioning alternator, or simply a loose alternator belt. When the car is idling, the rpm's of the engine are decreased. This means that the battery is putting out energy, but the engine is not moving the alternator fast enough to refill the charge. When the car is moving, the alternator is getting enough power to keep the lights from dimming.


Why would all your lights dim on your car also just replaced the alternator?

I always replace the battery when replacing a alternator. They seem to fail hand in hand. Next check the battery cables and alternator connections. Also check to make sure the belt is tight enough. If it is slipping then the alternator wont be charging the batttery correctly. It has to be one of these things. Good luck.

What to do about battery light staying on after staring up your Ford Escape Just put in a new battery and no change?

Same thing happened to me. Replaced the battery & the light went out for a couple weeks; after which it was back on again. This time I took it to the shop & they said the alternator was about to go. I didn't want to "fix" something that was "about to go" so I drove it for about 10 more days before the alternator stopped putting out enough juice to keep the car running or battery charged. Took the car back in & paid to have the alternator replaced. Guess they were right b/c it has worked just fine since. Good luck. It sounds like your alternator is about to go.

Why does operating my ac drain my battery?

It could be that your alternator is no longer putting out enough charge to handle the load of the AC running. Some auto parts stores offer free bench testing of alternators and some can even test it while it is still attached to your car. I would recommend getting it tested. Also, someone may have replaced the alternator in the past with a lower amperage than is required for a vehicle with air conditioning. Hope this is helpful!


Why does the battery light on a 2002 Civic LX come on when started goes out at exactly 4000RPMs and then will come back on at 2500 RPM even after the battery was replaced?

This is not a battery problem. Your charging system, the alternator, is not putting out enough juice to charge the battery until you reach 4000 rpm. Have the alternator and charging system checked.

Why does 1994 Ford Taurus loses connection when trying to start and the battery and starter has been replaced?

This can be due to loose or corroded cables and or connections , and did the car start even at least once after the battery and starter was replaced? If it did you probably need a new alternator or if your handy enough you have the choice of rebuilding the alternator. Many stores offer free alternator testing , I my self have a 96 Taurus and i have had many problems over the years and now I'm at the point where my alternator is bad and i will soon be rebuilding it. If it is none of these issues then there is some thing more serious wrong in which case it needs to go to a mechanic who can determine and fix the issue.


Why does 1997 buick park ave go dead while driving or stopped at a light dashboard flickers and goes dead wont restart for 5 to 6 minutes?

Since it is shutting down while it is running that tells me your alternator is not putting out enough current and needs replaced. You will need to charge the battery fully prior to starting after installing the new alternator or you could burn out the new alternator as well. I.King

No alternator should EVER charge at 27 volts. That's enough voltage to burn up the computer.


How do you replace the alternator on a 1996 Buick Regal?

Best to get a shop manual for this operation, if you have not replaced it before. Usually there is an "Idler Pulley" on many late model cars that is "spring loaded". You "Bias" this pulley (usually with a socket wrench) so that the serpentine belt has enough slack in it so you can remove it. Then you disconnect the Positive Battery cable, disconnect the "Field Wire" harness and Positive battery lead from the alternator, unbolt and remove the alternator. Reverse procedure to install new alternator. TommyTrouble


What would cause a 1995 rodeo to not get enough amp so it could start?

Low/bad battery, bad battery connection. If the battery isn't getting fully charged you might not be able to start. If it isn't getting charged, check the alternator.
