The alternator is the device in a vehicle's engine compartment that generates electricity. It is commonly found bolted to the engine block and driven by the belt assembly.

It could either be because your alterneator is going bad, or that your alternator belt is loose. Theres an component in the alternator that sends a signal to the dashboard for the battery status. Most often on reconditioned alternators, this component goes bad but it does not affect the overall performance of the alternator
