Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
I just had a new alternater installed. Two days later the battery died.I had the old battery tested and it was bad. I installed a new battery and it worked fine for about a week then the battery started to die again. i took the battery back to walmart to get tested and they found a bad cell and gave me another new battery. I installed the new battery and now when driving the battery loght comes on. when I stop at a light it goes off. any ideas?

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

i think it is the alternator because the idiot light is connected to your regulator of your alternator. it is an indication that your alternator is not charging anymore.
tnx 4 using fixya,

180 milli-amps is way to much draw,ford's limit is 50 milli-amps but typically we usually only see around 20-30. Now when you say fuse 2 is that in the under-hood fuse panel or the interior fuse panel? And if this vehicle is a 2007 it may still be under factory warranty which was 36 months or 36000 miles providing that the add on automatic starter is not causing your draw.Which in that case the people who installed it should be responsible for that.
