car repairs


Question by  Maureen (60)

What should I do when a car battery light flickers?

Is something wrong with my car battery?

It could just be a problem with your battery, if you haven't already, try recharging it. If that doesn't work, try switching to a different battery. If the problem continues, chances are there's a problem with your alternator and you should get that checked out so your car doesn't die on you leaving you stranded.

Something could be wrong with your battery or you may have a poor connection. Usually a visual inspection of your battery will tell you if they need to be cleaned. If you are unsure I would take the car to the mechanic and have him look at it for you.

The first thing I would do is watch it for a couple of minutes to see if it continues to flicker. And, if it does, then I would pull over and shut the car off. When I crank it back up, if it still is flickering, then I would go to the shop.

It could mean that your car have a short circuit, which drains the battery energy. The important thing to know is that you must not stop the engine, otherwise it will probably won't start again. Get to the closest garage and have the problem fixed.
