Q: Q: Battery light staying on

asked by on

My car starts and runs fine, but the battery light stays on. I am thinking it could be the alternator or serpentine belt.

Hi. This could mean there is a short somewhere connected to your alternator. A mechanic can trace this issue along with any other issues along the way in order to diagnose the cause of your battery light.
