I found that my altenator belts were loose, so I changed them.
I am getting a satisfactory charge to the battery as a result, but the 4 warning lights are still lit up, when driving.
I was told by a Toyota dealership, parts department worker, that there is a "switch on the back of the instrument panel, that will extinguish the lights, by resetting them.
I can't find it.
if the belt was a little loose it gave the same symptom but i was not convinced that just tightening the belt up a little untill the lights went out was the real answer
if you tighten the belt up too much it will put too much strain on the alternator bairings causing it to prematurly fail anyway somwhere down the line
i think it's an earthing problem make sure the bolts that hold the alternator in place are nice n tight including the bolt that locks the adjustment bar )
