Car check lights are all on while driving

All the lights doesn't go away when I drive the car. Normally the lights only lights up in the beginning but the moment the engine is running, all the lights goes away.

The car is also not charging. Anyone knows? See vids

Re: Car check lights are all on while driving

i would guess that your alternator is about to kick the bucket.

Re: Car check lights are all on while driving

the lights on the dash, yes. another key indicator is that the battery is not being charged. is there any weird noise coming from the engine bay that started recently? i haven't experienced a failing alternator myself, but i've read they tend to make noise when they're close to being kaput.

you could also go by an autozone and they can test it for you while it's on the car still. should be free as well.

Re: Car check lights are all on while driving

I've ran my engine without the alt belt before, and every light on the dash was lit up. So, I'd have to agree that your alternator is kaput (or the belt came off).

Here's an update of what I've found. How is this possible. Even though I've connected them temporarily (whatever I had in my car since I'm an electrician) it's still not working so I guess it's the alt?

Re: Car check lights are all on while driving

mice like to chew on wires. there was a mouse that made a nest on my bike when i bought it, thankfully he didn't go for any wires though. you might need to solder in some new wire to get a good signal, maybe that's why it's still not working correctly.

Re: Car check lights are all on while driving

I love your marettes; you should at least tape back over them before they get wet.

Re: Car check lights are all on while driving

marettes are ****. they allow so much moisture to get trapped from behind. if you dont wanna solder and heat shrink it ( propper way) then you can get butt crimps with the built in heashrink and dielectrci grease that seals it once you heat it up.

dont use marettes!. once the wires get the green crusties on em. they just continue up the wire and eventualy start rotting it away
