Question about 1983 Ford Fairmont
Battery won't hold a charge . did replace the battery,alternator. starter.regulater , starter solinoid . will hold for a few but when you put on lights after tow days battery is dead again what do you think it could be ? thank you for any help you can privide
Looks like you have replaced all of the key parts, and then some. At this point I would verify that the alternator is charging the battery. With engine off, check battery voltage. Start the engine and check thre voltage again. It should climb to charging voltage, around 13.0 to 13.5 volts. If it doesn't, check all connections. On a vehicle this old, I would start with the ground circuits.
