Driving on the highway, wet roads, my battery warning light came on. The headlights dimmed and the blower fan slowed. Soon after, the ABS light, then the emergency brake light, then the tract light. Then the gauges zeroed and stopped working along with all the lights. The car was stuttering (assuming I was driving on the alternator output alone). I took the battery out and it tested as bad so I replaced it. I was still seeing the battery warning light so I tested the output of the alternator at warm idle. The output was between 14.5 volts and 15 volts. Now, after driving it home, I am noticing the battery warning light comes on, then goes out repeatedly. I am thinking a loose connection somewhere but I do not know where to look. I should also mention that yesterday I replaced a rear brake wheel cylinder. I am not sure if the wheel sensor on the side I replaced the wheel cylinder could be linked to this problem.
have the same problem?
