Charging System Indicators
BATTERY The IPC illuminates the battery indicator when the following occurs:
?€¢
The PCM detects that the generator output is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM requesting illumination.


?€¢
The IPC determines that the system voltage is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the body control module (BCM) indicating the system voltage.


?€¢
The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.


?€¢
The ignition is on, with the engine off.
BATTERY NOT CHARGING The IPC illuminates the battery not charging indicator in the driver information center when the following occurs:

• The PCM detects that the generator output is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM requesting illumination.
• The IPC determines that the system voltage is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the body control module (BCM) indicating the system voltage.

The charging system on your vehicle is controlled by the PCM powertrain control module . The PCM will send a message to the instument cluster on the class 2 serial data network to turn on the charging light if it see's or think;s there is a problem with the charging system . Should have a code stored . Have autozone check for codes.

I have a 1994 cadillac sedan deville with a 4.9 engine. The message center in the instrument cluster says the voltage is too high. I have replaced the alternator but still comes on . Maybe you can help me....


The first thing to do is have the battery tested and then the charging system checked, this will show you if its overcharging,if it is overcharging then take a look at the wiring going to alternator,and also a bad battery can also cause a problem so first find out if message center is displaying the correct message, this will show if center is okay then move on to battery testing then alternator test, there may be a problem with the wiring or a defective alternator.

Pressing the SELECT/RESET control switch cycles the message center
through each of the systems being monitored.

The sequence of the system check report and how it appears in the

4. DOOR AJAR
5. EXTERIOR LAMP
6. BRAKE SYSTEM
7. PARK BRAKE
8. MILES TO EMPTY
9. FUEL LEVEL LOW (will only display if 50 miles or less to empty)
To reset the oil monitoring system to 100% after each oil change

following:
1. Enter SYSTEM CHECK to display
“OIL XXX% RESET IF NEW”.
