Why is my battery light on?

The battery tell tale lamp has been standard on vehicles since the 1980s. This simple warning light lets the driver know one thing, that the voltage being produced while the vehicle is running is under the specified amount. Meaning that your electrical system is not getting quite the power it needs to work properly. Once illuminated your vehicle will start running all of it’s electronic devices from the battery it’s self. Once the battery has become fully discharged however, the vehicle will eventually shut down and leave you stranded.

Although the battery light is a sure fire way to know that there is a problem with your charging system. Sometimes it will not illuminate and there will be other signs that your charging system is starting to fail. These signs include,

  • Slow Cranking
  • Poor Idle
  • Engine Whine
  • Lights Flicker
