Battery red light on - battery not charging
I own a 2003 X5, 3.0 l. Yesterday I drove to the store (4 miles from home)
and after getting back into the vehicle it would not start. I jump-started it
and after getting back home I noticed the red battery light stated on after
turning the engine off - and the engine would not start again. I checked the
accessory belts and they look fine, so I think the alternator's bad. My
batery is over 6 years old. Is it possible that the battery is bad and will not
I bet it's your alternator. If you still think your battery might be bad, you can bring it to Autozone and they will load test it for free.
Thank-you apbimmer9i, I'll take the battery to Autozone, it may be I have to replace both the batt and the alt.
It's definitely possible that both are bad. Good luck!
