So driving battery light flashes lights dim. Made it to work and back 50 miles round trip. Next morning starts up just fine dies two miles from where I started. Had the alternator check and battery check both passed the tests but it says that voltage is low. How can I fix it?
It’s a Zx2 if that matters.
Do you

Hello there, my name is Roy and I will help you today.

Do you know what the battery voltage was when it was tested?

It sounds like low voltage. That could be from a battery issue or a charging system issue.
