Dodge avenger battery light came on

Asked by Targetwastaken Apr 07, 2020 at 07:46 PM about the 2014 Dodge Avenger SE FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My battery light came on this morning while I was heading
to work commuting for about 30 minutes. I have a brand
new battery, brand new serpentine belt, and just changed
my alternator just a few weeks ago to a new one as well.
My car still ran normally and made it to work with the light
on. When I got to work I shut it off and turned it back on the
light was off and didnt have trouble starting either after I
got off work. Why would it come on?

As you replaced the alternator, I'd suspect that the serpentine belt was not properly tightened, so the belt when cold was slipping. When it warmed up, the belt gained some traction. Have this checked.

You should take it to a shop that can check the entire charging system as the system is computer controlled
