Customer Question

my 2000 chrysler cirrus displays false alarms about battery/alternator failure. the voltage always reads 14.0, like it should. the red battery symbol comes on frequently for no apparent reason. if i stop the engine & then restart it, the light goes out for a little while & then comes back on. the battery & alternator both test good & perform perfectly. i really need to fix the false alarm trouble. any suggestions ?

Hello and welcome to just answer. This is an instrument cluster issue. If you are sure that the charging system voltage is ok like you say, then the logic circuits for that battery indicator are failing. This is not a common problem, but I have seen this before. Have the instrument cluster replaced. Based on what you have told me, this will fix the problem.
