I have an 05 Freestyle and I have relaced both the battery and alternator. Immediately after they were replace, the check engine light came on. After about 4 hours, the check engine light went off, and now the battery light and "check charging system" comes on. It will only stay on for about 5 minutes, then it will go off for a while. Some times it will go on when the car is under high revs, or even sitting at a set of lights. There is no making sence of it. The voltage when the car is running, is 14.3 even when the battery light is on. ??????????
I just bought a used 2001 Lincoln Ls V8 engine. The guy who sold it to me said not to worry about the battery recharge on the dashboard, he said everything is fine on the car except that light that flashes. He installed a new battery but he was told at the mechanic shop that the battery reset system was the issue,Something needs to be reset in order for that light to go off since there is absolutely no problems with the car. I really hope thats true and its not draining out the alternator. Other than the light flashing it runs fine, Anyone else have this issue?
I too have a 2001 lincoln ls and just replaced the alternator and battery and my check engine light stays on and battery and check charging system light comes in just driving down the road, and at night my headlights flicker, i never lose any light but it flickers....i checked fuses im desperate for a n answer.
I have a 2006, chevy equinox I replaced battery, starter, had alt. Check all good but still have battery light on suddenly it stops. I have to jump started or disconnect the battery for approximately one hour. Can you give me an idea as what else it can be. Thanks
