Check your owners manual first for info. If the battery and what looks like a thermometer flash together there are 2 possible reasons. The first is that your coolant is low. The second is that the PCM has found a discrepency between two temperature sensors. The IAT (intake air temperature) and the ECTS (coolant temperature sensor).
Your battery light does not flash It is your low coolant light Fill up coolant and you will be fine
actually the belt tensioner went on my car and i replaced it myself in an hr or so. i just had to take off the pass tire to get at it.
check your alternator you may need to replace it and battery too, sorry
could be a bad alternator or battery
A failing alternator.
The flashing warning light may be an indication that the air conditioning system is drawing too much power from the battery. A weak battery or alternator can be the cause of this problem.
on my old 1.2 clio the battery light came on as there was fault with the alternator and it needed replacing. As far as i know the battery light comes on when the battery is not charging or there is a fault with the battery.
i will not have flash cause last year flash spread out the most viruses and if that happened they will lose there 10 hour battery life to 2-3 hours.
What kind of seat belt system do you have? Check your seat belt system, as my escort does this occassionally and it has to do with the seat belts not working properly.
your alternator was never the problem. Its your battery and/or charging system. the reason the lights get brighter is because the car isn't getting the propper amount of energy from the battery and is having to directly draw off of the alternator. when the engine is rev'ed the alternator spins faster creating more current to charge the battery, witch is why the lights brighten at higher rpms.
Do you mean they dim when you push on the gas? If yes then try having the alternator and/or battery checked. Normally the battery should be between 13 and 14.5 volts when running.
either your belt is loose or alternator is faulting out go to nearest part store and have it tested for most accurate test remove alternator from vehicle I've had that happen before and in the vehicle alternator tested good. removed from vehicle it tested bad. replace alternator no further problems
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alt belt.Also check that the belt is routed correctly - I found a wrong way to route the belt and had similar symptoms.See "Related Questions" below for routing diagram sources
From what I have found there are a few different reasons.1. Loose connection to the battery.2. Loose or bad serpentine belt.3. Alternator is bad / going bad.4. Your batter is needing replaced.How old is the battery? If the case is that the battery is dead, then you are going to want to check the alternator also. Since it is trying to charge a dead or dieing battery, it is going to put a lot of wear on it and burn out the diodes inside the alternator.I would say check the battery with a digital meter, and see what voltage you are getting with the car NOT running... and then check with it with the car running, this is when the alternator is charging or attempting to charge the battery. With the car running running should be some where around12.4-13.6 +/-
If the headlights flash on and off, there may be a problem with the bulbs or fuses. There may also be a problem with the battery connections or wiring.
alternator and od solonoid
Weak alternator?Check with a voltmeterWithout engine running and a good battery reading should be around 12.8 With engine running reading should be 13.8-14.2
Of course they will flash until the battery runs down. So the time depends on how good the battery is. I have personally seen them flash for 6 hours straight.
Hey David==one goes to the light or gauge on the dash and the other one goes to energize the field. Good luckJoe ==new answer== on a delco alternator, one terminal is a feed back that lets the regulator get a look at battery voltage. it should be hooked up to the battery. the other is a a "flash" terminal that starts the alternator charging, and commonly comes off the idiot lite. see the answer to "wiring a one wire alternator".
This could really mean several things. The battery is not working properly. The alternator is not working right. A loose connection in the battery or alternator connections that only seems to show up accelerating. Possibly where it is. The drive belt is slipping and if this slips the alternator will not be charging the battery fast enough to replace the charge while accelerating. I would start with checking all the cables for loose connections and corrosion. Then I would check the belt and make sure that it is tight and in good shape. Then I check or have the charging system checked. If you know how to use a digital voltmeter you can check the charging system your self. The amp should not go below 13. If it does then the alternator is bad. On the other hand above 15.5 amps and the alternator is frying the battery. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Flash drives are powered from the power source in your computer.
Yes. Thunderstorms are the primary cause of flash floods.
There are a lot of things that will cause this. 1. Low battery voltage. 2. Flash tool has internal failure /issue 3. Poor connections from flash tool 4. Trying to flash the PCM with the wrong update
Your alternator is defective. Could be the internal voltage regulator or one or more bad diodes. Replace as soon as you can to avoid getting stranded on the road.
The alternator may be failing. Remove it and have it tested at an Auto Parts store.
A low battery can cause the electrical system to flash check engine lights
