Question: Battery light comes on
Answer #1Visitor, February 15, 2011, 19:46
the light is being caused by an alternator problem it comes one when it is not reciveing the right voltage at the battery. sounds like you have a wire not tighten enough on the alternator look for a red wire it should be a decent size wire try to wiggle it on the alternator if it is loose just tighten it down should fix the problem otherwise you have other electrial problems!!!!
