I own a 2007 Nitro. Recently my battery light came on a few days before it quit. I purchased a new one and the light is coming on again. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but my radio clock resets when I turn off the car sometimes. After changing the battery, the battery light is coming on again. I've made sure all doors are shut and no interior lights are left on when I get out. Any suggestions??

if the radio clock keeps reseting it could be a bad battery connection somewhere, most common places are at the battery terminals, the large Possitive cable to the TIPM, or the Ground cable to the vehicle chassis (underneath the battery tray),

Tried taking the battery out, cleaning/air blowing a lot of the dirt out and away. Put it all back and now it won't even turn over and the electric/lightning light comes on instead of the battery sign/light. Also unhooked the ground cable from red/positive wire to the fuse box and tried dusting that and underneath it.

Alternator (generator) test, and if alternator is good, test the external voltage regulator, and if that is good, have the pcm module diagnosed. If the pcm module is bad , ( like mine recently) they cost an awful lot , and I recommend a technician because the system will need to be reprogrammed to relearn the system. Hope this helps .
