Battery Light On Dash 1996 Lexus Es300

Recommended Posts

First off I'm new to the forum and wanted to say thanks to all the people who contribute to this board it's great. I've read alot but this is my first post:-)

My battery light in the left hand corner of my dash just turned on this morning on my 1996 Lexus ES300. Is that light for the battery or for the alternator, I don't have the manual? I'm hoping just battery as that's cheap. If anyone has gone through this and could give me some feedback I'd appreciate it.

Take the car down to a local auto part store, chances are that there is a problem with the alternator.

I was thinking alternator but I took it to batteries plus and they ran a check on the alternator and it came back ok. Today it was coming on and off a few times and then stayed off. Does the light being on mean alternator or battery problem?

bad connection .... disconnect the battery, remove the connections on the alt and battery, clean them nice and shiny... reassembe and your probably good to go.
