2004 Kia spectra, The first time this happened about 4 months ago the break light and battery light came on. New battery, and alternator installed. It started happening again, and the replaced the alternator under warrenty, and charged the battery. I drove 30 min. (75 mph with headlights on, radio on, and fan) and started to notice low voltage issues like the blinker was now working properly, and headlights starting to dim, but no battery light yet... need some tips, I plan to check cables, and look into testing the BCM... but don't know where to go from there.... the first two diagnosis were from a mec, but don't really want to toss out another $500, after the first $500, and another $1500 for a tranny a month earlier.... :confused:

check all earth leads and fixings, dont just do it with your hands, undo the bolts with spanner and retighten, warning lights coming on that have nothing to do with the problem are bad earths, the currant has found another way round. Dont forget that cars these days have a lot plastic in them that looks like metal. " Bad Earths "
