May i suggest you test the charge to battery using volt meter should be around 14 volts if alt is working ok also check the wires and connections to alternator are clean and secure? if alternator is faulty it is reasonably eay diy to change and you can obtain yourself from motor store if you have local tyre/battery depot near you pop along and have them check alt output/condition if you have no v/meter? they normally do not charge here in uk for quick check if they are not busy hope this helps

Lights dimm up and down while driving battery light comes on inermttenly whats wrong besides my spelling


Alternator may be wearing out. Have the charging system checked. Put a voltmeter on the battery with engine running, lights on, heater fan on. If voltage is less than 13.5 volts, you probably need a new alternator.

Battery light stays on


Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should see more than 14 volts. If it is less than 13 volts than the alternator is no longer charging. Make sure you check for power on the large wire on the back of the alternator!

On some of the earlier fords. If the bulb is blown in the instrument panel. It will not complete the circuit to charge. Turn your key on with the engine off to see if the red light comes on that shows the battery.

You may have a power problem, the battery light is an indicator of charging problems that can affect performance of electrial componets [ the transmission is controled that way ]. Have the charging system checked out. If you had an alternator replaced recently then it could be a faulty remanufactured one - this is very commom with this model alernator.

Dash lights


HI..
Normally when those lights come on .
Is why the alernator is no charging or is charging to much.
Or you have problem with wires.
Check the wires and all connection from the battery to the alternator..

I hope this can help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya.
