So, dose it need a jump start every time? Have you tested your battery? Look, I'm suggestioning that your battery is messed up and your alternator is working now. Start your truck, and unhook the battery, if the engine keeps running, it's not your altenator or regulator. If it dies, then it's likely the regulator.

My 2003 Ford escape power steering wheel got stiff out of nowhere, right after I started having problems with my battery and alternator... help please


You have an electrical problem. Power steering cannot work without power and since you are having battery and alternator problems, you are probably trying to operate the car with a dead battery or faulty electrical system.
Have the electrical system checked by a few different reputable mechanics and get 3 quotes for repairs without sharing the information from one shop to the next.
Make sure you understand the warranty on the work and the cost of labor before you choose a service provider.
Edmunds has some interesting discussions on battery power losses in Ford Escapes around your year.

My 2004 ford escape, is alway running on battery rather than the alternator


Have the alternator check for charging rate and serviceability. Take stock of all the electrical components current usage including lights and ECM as the alternator may be under sized for what you are using (60amp instead of 90 amp). Check the condition of the drive belt and check the tension of the belt

Dear Sirs, I'm now living in VietNam, my friend is living in US. He already sent to me the Motorcraft GL979 alternator 2 weeks ago(The part number: 8L8T-10300-AA), but my car is 2004 Ford Escape 3.0V6,...


my guess is that you have no voltage from the alternator to the battery, what does the voltage read on the alternator when running? the ecm or ecu or whatever has no control over this, check the circuit from alt to batt and check ground also, either one will give you a headache

Driving car and it quit running will not start


Check battery and alternator. If battery is dead, then your alternator was likely no longer charging the battery, resulting in a total loss of power.

Replacing alternator in 2004 escape


Have the whole battery/charging sytem tested. If it has an external voltage regulator or a bad battery, these things can kill a perfectly good alternator.

2004 Ford Escape Electrical problem


This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.
