More than likely the bulb is burned out.

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

Your alternator is defective and not recharging the battery. Have the alternator checked.

There is a battery light above the engine temperature gauge

The alternator warning light monitors the charging system. When the light comes on it means the alternator has failed and you are running on the stored energy in the battery. You'll have anywhere from 5 to 30 miles to get to a repair shop depending on how many electrical devices are using the batteries power,ie.radio,lights,wipers,etc.

A list of the warning light symbols for a Volvo v40 can be found in a manual for the vehicle. Each light has a different meaning warning of different issues.

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.

Not all the time. The alternator warning circuit wiring to the instrument panel could be grounded

The alternator light is a warning that there is a problem with the charging system. In most instances it means the alternator has failed. Any auto parts store can check your system and most will do it for free.

A Fiat dealer can give you an owner's manual. The owners manual should outline what each warning light indicates and its function.

New Alternator BUT Warning Light Still Stays OnMaybe there was nothing wrong with the alternator you replaced, and the problem is somewhere else in the charging system!Although possible, it is highly unlikely that a new alternator would be defective.

The light means that there is an alternator issue

FYI - I had a bad alternator. Apparently, a failed alternator may/can/will cause the battery AND brake warning lamps to come on. Alternator has been replaced, and all warning lamps cleared.

A Mitsubishi L200 yellow warning light on the dash could mean the ABS is having issues. It is best to check the owner manual for defined warning light meanings.

Why don't you read the manual? All the warning lights are explained in there.......

What warning light? The only warning lights that can be reset are the Maintenance Required and Check Engine Light. The Maintenance Required light is reset in different ways depending on model and year. The procedure is listed in your owner's manual. Reset the light after performing scheduled maintenance listed in your owner's manual, usually oil/filter change. The Check Engine light is reset by repairing the problem then unhooking the battery for 15 minutes, on a pre-1996 vehicle. On a 1996 and later vehicle it normally requires you use an OBD2 scan tool to reset the light. If you do not repair the problem that set the fault code, the light will just come back on. Your oil pressure warning light means you have low oil pressure, temp warning light means the engine is over heating, alternator light means the charging system has a problem.

The alternator is either over or under charging.

If your battery is not charging properly the charging system warning light ( located just to the right of the " F " on your fuel gauge ) will light up . It is the picture of a battery

Usually an early warning sign that the alternator needs to be replaced soon. Get it checked out
