Battery light is on all the time Wen I start the ignition and still on while driving. Won't start 3 days out of 7 have to charge the battery 3 times a week


Sounds as if you either have a faulty alternator or a wiring fault and it is not charging as it should . Easy 2 min test to check if charging or not .
