Asked by James Apr 18, 2016 at 06:24 AM about the 2013 Dodge Journey SXT FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Battery light keeps coming on in 2013 Dodge
Journey. I pulled both the battery and alternator
and has them tested and both passed multiple
times. Any ideas on why light would still be coming
on?

insufficient grounding...clean the black cable connections to the frame and to the engine~ be sure the battery is newish...stop accepting a charge-up 10 percent per year~

The charging system is computer controlled, so I would have it live data scanned to see if there is a failure in the charging side of the computer.
