Battery Light came on,

Washed my engine off,( I know dumb move on my part), Drove about 30 feet and all electrical cut off for about 1 second and then came back on, along with the battery light? New red top battery so im thinking my alt", What ya think i should check besides that?
Im gonna do a volt test on it today after it stops raining.

Re: Battery Light came on,

Ever get the battery light to go off? any problems or how did you fix it?

I just used some degreaser on my engine and it says to wash it off after so i did that- then i let it sit and dry for a few hours. Got in and drove it for a while, stopped at a store, restarted (still fine) then stopped at another store and when i got out of there and started it the battery light came on. I drove it again this morning and the light is still on but it runs fine and there are no electrical issues that i can see.
Im going to test the battery and see if the alternator is charging at a normal voltage.

Re: Battery Light came on,

That usually means alternator. Check voltage.

An old school test- start the car, and take off the negative connector from the battery. If the car dies its the alt.

Running solely on a battery (considering the alt is dead), in your case should not last more than a day.

This case is not a standard issue but may be a prelude specific issue instead. Hope someone can chime in.
