If you have done a previous check or diagnosis in which you have obtained any error codes, that would also be helpful. Please note that the system will automatically offer you a service call, this has an additional cost to the initial cost of the consultation, and not in all cases it is necessary, so I recommend you to dispense with the call for now, we can continue through this chat without any problem. Thank you very much for trusting in the just answer.
Dear customer, did you change the battery and check the connections to the alternator?
Dear customer, have the connections to the alternator been checked?
Dear customer, with a multimeter you can check the load that the alternator is sending to check if it is working properly.
Dear customer, the alternator is what charges the battery. If the alternator is not working properly, the battery will not charge.
Dear customer if you do not have experience in this kind of work I advise you to allow me to recommend you to a specialist near your area, as you could damage the multimeter in a bad reading in case the alternator is working properly, currently I do not have a video of how to check it for your model, but it is basically, placing the terminals to the ground and positive port of the alternator.
Dear customer the problem that you present is very likely to be due to a power supply problem by the alternator, this as I said before one of the best ways to check if this is really charging, is checking in real time with a multimeter output connections of the alternator, previously I recommended that this kind of work was better the hicier an expert in automotive electricity because the manipulation of the electrical system could have major problems.
