Service charging system light
Service charging system light keeps coming on
even after replacing two new batteries; what could
be the problem?
Get the alternator tested.
Check belt tention if tention is good, take it to ur local auto parts store to have the charging ststem cheked, might be the alternator
I have replaced both the battery and alternator recently. I am getting the service battery charging system code as well as battery saving active. This is a 2009. Did you have any further trouble with that? The alternator is less than a month old.
Amanda, depending on quality of the alternator and new vs used, they will fail. I had a client replaced their's 3 times within 3 months, alternator kept coming apart due to poor quality til he bought a new one from autozone. Take in to ur local autoparts and they can check it on or off the vehicle
Super helpful. I was in DC on a road trip and had a this happen. The car died on 1/22 and Pepboys gave me a "new" alternator and a new battery despite the fact that I had a new battery in November. I had NO idea but when I showed my husband the receipt when I got home, the receipt said reconditioned alternator which infuriated me since that was not disclosed before it was done. That's about 4 weeks ago. Fingers crossed Pepboys will stand by their work. Also, any thoughts that all the chargers for iPads and phones might tax the system? I was a 24 hour road trip with multiple devices charging. THANK YOU for your input. This car has been a nightmare but I refuse to sell it for something new get have to have a payment!!!
I'm sure pepboys will and about the chargers, no they consume such a small amount of current that won't affect anything. Good luck!
