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
