'06 Sedona battery light comes on. Low voltage indicated on radar detector. Battery was replaced ...2 days later the same problem. When battery was replaced, I unhooked batt connectors and van still ran...so didn't think it was the alternator. Also battery did die the first time and could not restart vehicle. Battery was tested and was producing 1/3 less amps than normal.

The battery light in our 2005 Dodge Caravan keeps coming on. My husband took the alternator off yesterday and took it in to be tested. The alternator tested okay. Husband then replaced the battery. It was the original, so, it was probably time. The van started, but, the alternator sounded like it was ''struggling''. Husband then took it on a test drive and about a mile down the road, the battery light came back on. Anyone have a clue what is wrong?

On my 2000 Nissan Maxima SE, the brake & battery lights are on and my battery died. I just bought the battery at Autozone in September so I took it back. They charged/tested it and said it was good. They also tested my car with the charged battery back in it. The result was that the alternator wire to the battery should be checked/replaced. However, the Autozone guy said it may also be the alternator itself and if I pulled it out, they could test that also. I'm wondering if I should go through t

Alternator problem? I just replaced the battery in my 2006 Ford Focus. The next day the alternator warning light flickered on and off two or three times while driving. I took it to Sears who tested the alternator and said it was bad and wanted $550.00 to repair. I am still driving the car and the light has not come back on and the car is driving fine.
