1998 Saab 900S Battery Not Charging - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Alternator trouble- my 98 900s manual 2.3 non turbo is not charging the battery. I'm close to condemning the alternator but wondered if anyone had any "alternate" thoughts. :-)
Here's what is happening...
1. When I turn the key to "on" (initial test mode) the battery light is barely on vs. all other idiot lights shining brightly.
2. After starting, battery light continues to be barely lit but no triangle light and no msg on the SID.
3. Using a alternator test on my battery charger at the battery posts shows "fault" which means incorrect voltage.
4. Battery disharges all the way if I drive it.
