Answer 1
on most vehicles, when the "Battery Light" Flashes or comes on, that generally means the Alternator is not producing enough voltage, meaning it may need to be replaced. If you have a digital volt meter, you can check the voltage at the battery while the car is running. It should be producing at least 12.8 volts. -
