Dashbord Warnings on at the same time: Battery. Car Lock & ABS

10

Asked by Dec 24, 2015 at 06:05 AM about the 2006 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On Yesterday while driving my battery light came on so I immediately took
it to autozone to have it checked. But they had to charge the battery
because the pm voltage was too low to test that was about . And autozone
suggested that my alternator may need to be  done but I just had it done a
month and a half ago. Hours later at 5am while taking my son to work my
car lock, abs, battery light all came on. Let just say it was a task to turn my
car around to get back home and park it. But I made it. Can someone help
me please.

You need to determine why the battery's charge was low. Is it bad battery, defective alternator, a problem with the alternator drive belt? I would take a close look at the alternator electrical connections and have the alternator tested as it may be defective.

All of my lights /symbols appeared on my dashboard while driving. The gas line fluctuate. The mph went to 0 while driving. The lock and car symbol came on right before all of this appeared. What could this be? I have a 2006 chevy malibu

This would happen to me in my 07 Malibu LTZ, also my engine power would be limited on other occasions. I had many low voltage codes. In the end it was such a simple fix. My power (+) side post on my battery had been cross threaded at the factory and was arcing with the battery. My mechanic pulled the old post and screwed a new one in as I watched and I never had another issue.
