battery light flashes and car dies while driving! what's the problem?

Asked by Mar 04, 2017 at 06:52 PM about the 2011 Hyundai Accent GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought the car today and it died as I was driving home!  The electric was
working fine, but the battery light did flash as the engine shut down.  I waited
and tried to start it several times over a 20 minute period and eventually it just
started up again.

The battery is run down due to the alternator, charging system not working. light on the dash is a warning lite that something is wrong with the charging system.
