1991 ford f250 batter and truck keep dying while running


Your truck may have an external voltage regulator. If it does, it will be found under the hood on the passenger side fender well. It's usually silver aluminum with Motorcraft on the top (if it's OEM). The regulator is the likely culprit by the sound of things.

I was driving down the raod the gauges went out then the truck died check betterys they have 11.79v but it want turn over at all it just clicks


The "clicking" is most likely your solonoid. Either your battery is low or the solonoid is not engaging (faulty) and needs to be replaced. If the truck died and the battery is low - I would check the alternator, since once the vehicle is running the alternator should put out enough power to charge the battery and keep the vehicle running even if the battery is bad. Let me know. Thanks

2002 Ford F250 V10 new alternator good battery but it dies while you are driving


Does the battery charge even after it drains. Even though it's a new alternator, it could still be bad. The battery could even have a dead cell because it's draining while you're driving. Sounds mainly like the alternator output isn't enough. Internal voltage regulator inside the alternator is usually a big problem, it can't be replaced, except by a new alternator or have yous rebuilt.

We think it is the diesel injection pump but not sure


Sounds like not all the glow plugs are working.It should run fairly smooth on a cold start if all of the glow plugs are working..Also you shouldn't drive off on a cold start with a diesel,Its really hard on the motors..At least give them 10 to 15 min on a cold start..The oil in them is a really thick oil and when there drove on a cold start theres no oil lubricating the internal parts and will cause the motor to seize up..You may already no this and dont mean you drive it as soon as you start it i just wanted to let you know..When you get alot of white smoke it could be two things,Theres water in the fuel which will make it not have much power die and smoke..But if it runs fine when its warm theres some bad glow plugs...Hope this helps you and have a great day

1989 Ford F250 7.3L Diesel. Bat light came on then smoked the VR


Thats a guessing game, but first, if the battery light was on, that means no alternator output. So recharge the batteries and be sure they are good, Then replace the alternator. If the batteries and the alt are good, and the battery light is off, then all should be OK.

2002 F250 7.3 drains batteries and dies


You need to have the alternator re-checked and be sure the wiring is clean & correct. If an alternator is working properly & wiring is correct, those batteries should be charging as you drive.

1999 f250 will not charge battery


It appears that the alternator is still not charging the battery.Charge the battery up,and refire the truck.Check voltage with a voltmeter,directly off the back of the alternator.Most all alternators of your year model have the voltage regulator built into the alternator.If the alternator isn't producing any voltage,then it is bad,even if it is new.I have had defective new parts before.
