Check to see that the belt is tight on the alternator.If it is, check the stator wire it may be loose.

There is not an alternator indicator light on a Honda Pilot. If the alternator goes out, the battery will not stay charged.

It means something is wrong with your charging system. Can be a loose of corroded battery cable, defective alternator or a battery with a dead short.

If you are 100% sure the battery and alternator are good and the battery is loosing it's charge then something is on pulling power from the battery. Can be any light or any relay on the vehicle.

The light is on because the alternator is not putting out the required voltage. Either the belt is broken, loose, or the alternator is defective.

Not a good sign, This could mean that your charging system (alternator) isn't doing its job. If you have problems starting the car due to not enough battery power, then check your battery to see if it is holding the charge. If after a while that you had to boost or jumpstart your battery your car gradually dies then check your alternator to see if it is putting out charge to the battery.

Is the alternator actually working. It is possible to buy a new alternator that is defective.

Dead cell in the battery requiring it be replaced or something is on pulling power from the battery. Some light or relay.

User Avatar

there is usually a fuse box next to the battery under the bonnet

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

A few causes that will make the Battery Light come on are: 1. Faulty Battery 2. Loose Battery Connection 3. Battery is not Charging, ie. Faulty Alternator

Usually a bad alternator or regulator. Many auto parts retailers will test the charging system without charging you.

That means that your alternator is bad and the oil light can indicate something about you oil level or oil pressure

The easiest way is to disconnect the battery for 15-30 minutes.

There is a problem with the charging system. More than likely the alternator is failing.

User Avatar

Usually when the battery light comes on its the Alternator, or a bad wire from Alternator to battery, but id check Alternator first.

User Avatar

Take it to auto zone and have the battery and alternator checked out free.

User Avatar

you might have a short take off the negative terminal and connect a test light to the negative cable then touch the negative post with the other end of the test light if the light goes on u have a short

User Avatar

The charging warning light should automatically reset if the battery is disconnected. Check the battery cables and ensure they are properly connected. Also check the alternator connections. If the light is still on there may be a problem with the new alternator.

Try disconnecting the battery for about 10 minutes or have vehicle scanned and codes cleared
