Battery warning light

acura

#1

I checked the fuse to the battery and I made sure the alternator is working, but never the less I found that my battery needed replacing. I replaced it w/a brand new battery and minutes after I did this the light which had stopped coming on came back on again! What could be possibly wrong if I’ve already eliminated all those other possibilities?


#2

Has anyone checked the charging system? Did anyone charge that new battery before putting it in your Acura?


#3

“I checked the fuse to the battery and I made sure the alternator is working”

HOW did you make sure the alternator was working??


#4

I purchased it from the vendor so I’m assuming it was ready to go upon purchase.


#5

I used the same component I used to check the fuses.


#6

??? Wwith the engine off connect your voltmeter to the battery. Whats your voltage reading?

Start it up whats your voltage reading now??


#7

While the car is off it reads 12.68, while it’s idling it reads 14.7.


#8

Voltages are good, so i presume that current/amps are low.

I’m not sure what causes that. Take it to a parts store & have the alternator output tested.
