May I suggest that you drive your car to one of the major auto stores and they can and will check your alternator for you to make sure it is good/bad.These places like AutoZone do this all the time. They do not charge for the check out. (Of course they are hoping that if you need a part you will buy it from them.

One other suggestion. If you do need a new alternator, get a rebuilt one. It is cheaper and most always comes with a warranty.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please take a moment to give me a rating

  • I have purchased many alternators for replacement on my own and other peoples vehicles. I have had terrible luck with rebuilt alternators from various auto parts stores, and have come to the conclusion that it is worth the extra money to buy new or certified alternators.

    The time and trouble to keep replacing defective rebuilt alternators is in no way "ECONOMY". I have had a lot better luck with national auto parts suppliers that service local auto repair shops.

    I have learned this lesson the hard way!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 2002 Ford Escort ZX2. The last couple of days I have noticed the battery light flashing. I just had a new battery put in my car in July or August. I haven't had any problems with my car starting....


Be sure all battery connections are tight including the ground side of the cable from battery to ground. Also check the wiring to your alternator. If your car is stil starting your system is at this point getting enough voltage to the battery to keep it charged - this is what leads me to believe it is a loose connection.

Battery indecator light on on dash


Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.

My 1999 Ford ZX2 won't turn over


sounds like the battery is way under power,or the starter motor is the wrong one count the number of teeth on the pinion 9 or 11.put battery on a trickle charge for at least a week to de sulphate the plates or a nice new one and put that on charge as well as often batterys are on the shelf for a long while and need a recharge ,but only a slow charger no booster as this can buckle the plates
