My brake and battery light are both on and low beams on headlights don't work. What could cause this?

Asked by Nov 04, 2012 at 10:36 PM about the 1995 Subaru Legacy 4 Dr LS AWD Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced my battery after it tested
weak, I used a volt meter and know
I'm getting 12.3 volts to the alternator.
My fusible link fried so I replaced out
and the trouble lights are still on. My
alternator is whining now as well,
could the alternator be my problem?

1 Answer

check brake fluid first, but sounds like alternator belt is missing or alternator is bad. check the charging system.
