My 97 dodge neon battery light was on for a week the power for the sterio flickered on and off until today the power shut down gages started to flicker and everything shut down Would it be the alt?
Probably the alternator but I'd check it to be sure first. Many auto parts stores will check you whole charging system for free so call around.

Why would the battery light still be on after starting your car even though the battery is not running down?

Can a bad battery go dead while driving the car leaving power to everything else but lose the ability to accelerate?
Can a battery that fails the storage capacity test keep an engine from starting - even when the engine still cranks?
No. If you have enough power for the engine to crank then it has enough power to run the other systems. ALSO..i've started a car with a good battery and replaced it with "unknown battery" and it has stalled the motor. Starter and everything was good. Technically, even if the battery is dead and all other systems are normal this shouldn't happen. Go figure.
The same thing happened to me this week with my '96 Explorer . Battery light came on, would not go off. But my amp meter is showing that my alternator is doing its job. I left the lift gate open for about 2 hrs and when I went to start it the battery would not turn the engine over. Jumped it and didn't have a problem...but that battery light was still on. If the serpentine…
Why doesn't your car start--it started kind of progressively weaker as the week went on now it doesnt start at all?
My 2000 Volvo s40 will drive fine but sometimes will not start there will be power from the battery everything will work but sometimes you have to wait 45- an hour for it to start?
The cause I think in this instANCE is the battery recovery rate after the engine has started or has been running i.e 'x' amount of volts has to be received by the ECM to start the engine. Nothing wrong with the car (by the sounds of it, not burbling during start up). My thought is to get a new HD battery.
1999 Cougar driving about 60mph car started 'lunging' and shut off for a few seconds and then everything came back on for a few seconds stopped and started right up but did this 3 times in 5 miles.?
When battery charger was hooked to the battery the plastic on the terminal started to melt what was the cause of this?
You have no electrical power gauges just flicker back and forth then max out buzzing sound coming from under dash sounds like Morse code. It used to start but will not start so far?
This has just happened to me. I called a local ford dealer, and much to my suprise, he did help out over the phone. He had explained that a fried battery will case the relays to go haywire. I purchased a new battery, installed it, and walla....my van started. Hope this helps, good luck. this happend to me too, but it turned out to be the wire from negative on the battery to the ground…
The battery will be Damaged. Possible damage to the Started Relay. Also check the alternator, more specifically the voltage regulator circuit which is built into the alternator.

Is there a way to determine whether it is your battery or alternator that needs to be fixed in a 2001 Bonneville?
If you can get your vehicle started you can then un hook the battery while it is running and if your vehicle stays running then your alternator is good. If it stalls and dies as soon as you unhook the battery then the alternator is not good. If you can get your vehicle started you can then un hook the battery while it is running and if your vehicle stays running then your alternator is…
1993 Acura Vigor It will not start when you turn the key you hear a click but it does not start this all started after you got your battery terminals cleaned and it cannot be jump started?
If a jump start will not start it then it is not the battery. You either have a short in the battery cable connection to the battery or the engine/starter or you have a bad starter. Test for a short in battery, battery Cables or connection. Trace where the positive battery cable connects to usually an electrical box on the inside of the engine compartment and put the positive jumper cable there while putting the…
