What does it mean when the airbag light and battery light on 1999 Ford Escort flashes?
Possible alternator problem
More than likely your alternator is getting ready to go out.
my battery is still on after changing battery and altnator
Loose connection? Bad ground? Weak battery?
Normally it means the alternator is failing.
If the light is still on then the problem was not the battery but was instead the alternator which is more than likely defective.
either alternator or wrong size battery
Sounds like the brushes are worn down in the alternator.
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alt belt.
poor charge or intermitant charge from the alternator, also check condition of the alternator belt
Probably your battery cable or cables are loose on one end or the other.
The battery light comes on because: \ 1. The serpentine accessory belt has broken. 2. The alternator has worn out.
alternator or bad wires
You might have a bad battery, a poor connection between the battery and alternator, or a bad ground from the battery.
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.
To indicate to you that it may need charging, replacing, or a loose connection.
My check engine light came on because the terminals were not connected tightly. no. quite the contrary. if you have a "check engine" light on, disconnecting, or in this case replacing the battery will turn it off. you have a different problem.
probably have a bad alternator or voltage regulator or bad battery cables
If no light is on and no relay is stuck then the battery has a dead cell and needs replacing.
You need to repair the cause of the code that turned the light on. You can then reset the light with a scan tool or a battery disconnect.
you can disconnect the battery for one minute >> then reconnect it ..... that should put the light out
try changing the fuse to the tail lights as well.
Having too much play in the emergency brake handle in the middle of the console could lead to the brake light flickering. At least this was true for me.
disconnect battery for 5 minutes, and then reconnect
