My battery light keeps coming on, what should I do?
I replaced the battery about a year
ago and put a new alternator belt on
within the past month and just had
an alternator installed and the battery
light still comes on and my odometer
flashes in and out.
You might need a new belt tensioner to keep the belt tight. Put a meter on the battery with the engine running. You should see 14-14.5 volts if the alternator is healthy.
that's a weird symptom ,but these cars are weird with the way they operate things . so you covered all the bases on the charging circuit you would think, well order up a battery temp. sensor as that's part of the system, if it has anything to do with the odom. flash ,id like to know for further research ,maybe voltage spikes thru sensitive circuit .only explanation .
It has a manual tensioner and the belts still tight, the battery light would come on before I replaced the alternator and now it comes on more then before and I recently started noticing the flickering of the odometer
Tight as in no play and a brand new belt
The odometer flickers a little then when the battery light comes on it gets worse
