Losing power in 2001 taurus


Pull all of your fuses, disconnect the Positive lead from the Battery and use a Multi Meter between the cable and battery post. with the ignition on off. Check the voltage, now replace the fuses one at a time and watch for a change in voltage. The fuse that causes a change will be the one that goes to what is draining your battery.

I would check fuses and relays first..Check the voltage coming off the alternator on the big red wire,,instead of across the battery..Some cars still use a fusible link..You would no that if you have charging voltage at your alternator but not at the battery..Should be 14.0 volts or close to it..with no load

Unfortunately if it was a rebuilt alternator it may have one bad diode causing it to bleed amps and drain the battery. With rebuilds this happens a lot these days. Either have the diodes tested or demand a different alternator under warranty.

The battery on our 2001 ford taurus sel keeps being drained.


Hi,

The problem should be from your alternator. The alternator charges the battery when the car engine is turned on. So, if your battery is being drained always, then it means your alternator is not charging the battery.

Have your alternator tested, in order to be sure its in good condition.

Best regards.
