Question about 2005 Ford Explorer
Our Explorer is having what seems to be a slight miss during idle and when hitting high RPM's the "check system charging" and "battery" light starts flashing until you let off the gas. Also about 3 months ago I replaced the battery because it was dead one morning.
I have a 2005 explorer with the same problem. It started when I hit 5 rpm at first and then it starting going off constantly. I had the battery replaced and then shortly after the alternator replaced. A year and a half after that it happened again. The battery gage does not change and lights do not go deem. I took it to a different garage and was told this is a known problem for explorers and expeditions and it could either be the sensor located in the alternator go bad or the computer board. I have choosen to not replace anything and have not had any problems other than the check charging system going off on an occasions.

You have an alternator problem, have Kragen auto or a store like it test the alternator for proper operation, it's free.
