Hello. If the vehicle is not running (perhaps starting system is working but engine does not run?), you would appear to have an electrical fault.

Diagnosis of the electrical fault would start with the ignition system and move from there. If the engine does run but the battery/charge light is still on, there is something wrong with the charging system or circuit.

In either case, YourMechanic is well equipped to resolve the issue and will be pleased to diagnose the Battery Light and repair it for you, at your home or office.
