Why Is My Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Battery Light On?

why is my chrysler jeep dodge ram battery light on?


Bob Howard Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram invites you to find out why your car’s battery light is on.

If the battery light in your vehicle comes on just when you start the vehicle, that is just a normal system check. If it stays on after a few moments, then there is likely something to check out. If you have issues with your battery, you may find that your headlights are getting dim, the stereo might not power on, and the windows are moving slowly. If any of these are happening, you need to get to your destination or bring it here to us ASAP because your vehicle is in imminent risk of shutting down. If neither destination can be reached, look for a safe place to park.


How Long Before The Vehicle Stops Working If The Car Battery Light Is On?

How Far Can You Drive With Car Battery Light On?

Like all things automotive-related, how much you can drive with the car battery light on depends on the circumstances. If the car battery light just came on, then you can help mitigate the problem by turning off all non-vital systems like the infotainment system or AC and removing any cellphones that may be connected to USB slots. Doing this can help boost the remaining battery charge, but you should come straight here or go right back home. The critical thing to remember is to NOT shut off the engine because a dying battery won’t have the power to start your car.

The Car Battery Light Turns On and Off, Why Does It Do That?

What Causes The Car Battery Light To Turn On and Off?

The car battery light might come on for a lot of reasons, but generally, the reasons are:

  • An old car battery
  • Car battery connections that are corroded
  • Car battery cables that are misconnected
  • Dying alternator
  • Failing serpentine belts

Your vehicle does its best with a charged battery. Any one of these problems will make it extremely difficult for your battery to get charged. If it is not corrected as soon as possible, it may reduce the power of your car battery and maybe even leave you stranded.

How Do I Fix My Car Battery Light?

What Can I Do To Fix My Car Battery Warning Light?

If there’s a safe place to park, at least you can pop the hood and look at your battery for a loose cable or oxidation on the battery. Besides those quick checks, the best way to fix the battery light is to bring it here. Our experienced technicians have the skills and tools to figure out the problem. They will test everything from your battery health to checking out your alternator and advise on the correct strategy to fix your car.
