1997 saturn sl2 battery light

Asked by Jan 24, 2017 at 07:31 PM about the 1997 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SL2 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My battery light came on a few days after i
changed my alternator. And it has not been
charging my battery. The only wires that go to it are
the plug and a green wire that goes onto the
threadded bolt. Is there a fuse that could be
blown? Or a bad ground?

1 Answer


Have the alternator tested at the store where you bought it. You could have gotten a defective one. I work for NAPA and unfortunately it happens sometimes. HTH. -Jim
