battery idicator light came on. Replaced with new battery, checked all related wiring. When I would rev up engine, while in neutral, the light would go off for a few seconds, but then it would re-appear. Now it just wont shut off ???
check the battery post on the back of the alternator. i had same problem on my 98 commodore. i replaced everything 2 do with charging only 2 find out it was the post on alternator. ull need new wire running from battery 2 alternator.
check ur wiring...its either loose or installation was quick yet defective...i had the same problem before...the handbrake light keeps on flashing when im running...i had the whole wiring setup changed and my alternator replaced...also had starting problems...found out that the positive terminal on my battery was not clipped tightly...
the battery indicator actually means the battery is not charging, not that you need a new battey... try testing the charge coming from the alternator, you might need a new one
what nathan said, check alternator. ur old battery was probably fine. they can check batteries and alternators at autozone
