What is the meaning of astra battery warning light?

That is the charging system warning light. If it stays on or flickers it means the alternator is not outputting enough voltage to keep the battery charged. With a digital volt meter you should read from 13.5 to 15.5 volts at the battery with the engine running. If not the alternator or the voltage regulator is defective. The voltage regulator is more than likely built into the alternator.



Why does the battery light flicker and the car feels like it will die but it doesn't?

If the battery light flickers, it's losing voltage. It would be worse when the lights and other accessories are running. It just may not be enough to kill it yet. I would suspect parts in this order. Alternator(if there is a voltage guage, should be around 13-14 volts) discharged battery

Your battery is not being charged because of a problem with the charging system Whether its a problem with the alternator / voltage regulator , the serpentine belt etc . you should have the charging system checked


How many light bulbs can you light with a battery?

it takes 1 C type battery <><><> That answer is not really very helpful because the question doesn't say what the voltage of the light bulbs is! This question cannot be answered without knowing at least the voltage of the light bulbs and also the voltage of the battery that is being asked about.



Will the brightness of a light change with the size ooof the battery?

The brightness of the light will change with the voltage of the battery.That's not always related to its physical size.The higher the voltage is, the brighter the light will be, until you reach oneparticular voltage where the light goes out, because you have burned it outwith overvoltage.


Why is my oil light brake light battery light and coolant light on and low voltage?

Sounds like battery/alternator problems. Check battery first, it's cheaper to replace.


Will your battery light come on if your Voltage regulation is bad?

If it is undercharging the battery yes, but if it is overcharging the battery no in most instances. If it fails completely the light will come on.


Why would your battery light stay on after you have put in a new battery and alternator?

The battery light comes on when the alternator output voltage is too low or too high. You have a wiring or regulator problem.The battery light comes on when the alternator output voltage is too low or too high. You have a wiring or regulator problem.


2003 Pontiac vibe battery light flickers what can cause this?

It is possible you have a bad alternator, or a bad connection at the battery. You can take the car by your local auto parts store and have the altornator checked.

Probably the battery is discharged. It's possible the battery is not charging because the power adapter is dead. Check the power adapter with a voltmeter.


How do you wire a high watt light to a battery?

Need more information. Wattage of bulb, voltage of bulb, voltage of battery and wire size of the circuit.


Your alt light is on but battery is charging?

Does alt. light stay on after car is shut off? If so could be voltage regulator is defective and overcharging battery when running Does light stay on after car is shut off? If so could be a bad voltage regulator--if so may be overcharging battery Check voltage readings at battery should be around 14.2 with car running -- if much higher than this voltage regulator is bad.


Why did the battery light on the 2001 ford expedition come on?

Check battery connections, check alternator out put. Exc.


Why is your battery light in your 2005 Malibu maxx coming on?

How do you know if your alternator is bad on your 97 Plymouth voyager?

When the battery light stays on or flickers. If you have a voltmeter, you can check voltage at the battery. With car off, should read 12 volts. Running, it should be 13 or 14 volts, unless there's a problem with wiring between the alternator and battery. You can check voltage between big wire, usually red, from back of alternator and frame while running, but watch out for belt, alternator fan blades, other moving parts.


Can you light a light-bulb with a battery?

Yes as long as the battery and bulb are rated at the same voltage. (Boy Scouts do it every day with flashlights.)


Please explain the charging circuit in automobile. 1. How does the charging light comes on when ignition switch is turned on 2. How charging light comes on when alternator is not or less charging?

When the ignition is turned on, battery voltage passes down the wire to the alternator to 'excite' the alternator when the engine starts. When the engine starts and the alternator generates a voltage, the light is extinguised by the charging voltage cancelling out the battery voltage coming down the wire. If and when the alternator completetly fails the the light will come back on as there is no sancelling voltage. if the alternator produces a voltage lower than the voltage from the ignition switch then the battery light will glow.


Why would the battery light and ABS light come on in my '99 cavalier?

The ABS light is most likely on because of low voltage, same reason for the battery light to be on. Get your alternator tested.
