    Check charging system on DIC

    My battery light indicator light is on and on my DIC panel shows check charging system. Does this mean my battery is going bad?

    Could either be a bad battery or your alternator is going bad, or both. I wouldn't prolong getting it fixed, because if the battery is bad, you are straining the alternator to keep up.


    Or, could possibly be something as a loose ground, just get it checked. A simple load tester and a voltage meter can detect either problem.

    Loose ground wire on the battery. Remove the negative side and re attach it. Happened to me 3 weeks ago. Problem solved
