Battery light

Asked by Jun 09, 2018 at 03:58 AM about the 2012 Dodge Journey

Question type: General

My battery light came on when I was driving my
car. I was 40 minutes away from home. Soon after
the light came on the radio turned off and wouldn't
power back on. A little bit later the abs light came
on and a bunch of other lights on the dashboard.
My car wouldn't drive out of low drive the rmps
were up into between 4 and 5. My head lights and
interior lights never dimmed. I pulled over turned
off the car, and it wouldnt turn back on.  I've had
alternator problems in past vehicles, and its not
acting like any of the problems Ive had in the past.
Its the original battery.  Could the battery just be
the problem?

1 Answer

This exact thing just happened to my 2014 Dodge Journey r/t. After changing the battery the battery light went out but the battery saver mode is still displaying. I see where others are saying its the alternator. I have not driving it since changing the battery. Did you resolve your same issue?
