I was driving home today and suddenly 3 warning light came on.

The charging system warning light- Battery is brand new, terminal is good condition.
The Brake warning light-new brake pads and fluids.
and one more!
I have no clue because I check the manual book and its not listed?

It's next to the door-ajar warning light. It shape like a house with 4 line going down. What is that?

And I drove home fine. The battery was reading 14.0. Brake seem fine!
The car is running fine.
Thanks for your help.

Just because your battery is new is the only reason its still holding 14v. Try running it with fans on high, hi-beams on and you'll see it drop dramatically ;)

then check/change what the above said :)

Same thing happen to me a few months back. Like everyone else said its your alternator.

Start it up, put a voltmeter across the battery with it running and you should be inbetween 13.8 -14.4VDC across the battery. If you get this, alternator is okey, but anything lower, alternator brushes had gone kaput - esp with high mileage on the car with original alternator.

Thank you for all your answer.
I started the car today, all the signal disappered, but I'm going to drive around for 30 minutes and see if it pops up again. If it does than, I'm going to take out the alternator out and get it check.
