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

My 07 uplander wont start most times. and the charging system failure message keep coming on

Sounds like an alternator/battery issue. When it does start, if your voltage gauge isn't close to the 14v mark or the upper end of the gauge, then your alternator isn't charging. If your alernator is charging then your battery might have a dead cell and won't take a charge from the battery. In this case the best thing to do is take the battery to your local part store and have them charge it and test it. Most of the chain stores do it for free.

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!

1992 bronco will not charge. New alernator, new battery, new 3/0 ground wire from battery to frame, frame to engine block, frame to alternator. harness from alternator to battery ohms good (.4ohms) what am...

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

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.
