Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
My battery in fairly new . it won't start when it sits for about a day or two. it will start again only when i jump it for about 5 to 10 minutes...could it be the alternator?
Take it to get the system tested for free at your local parts store, if the system is charging fine it means something is drawing power while you have the truck off. If that is the case you'll have to use a test light while the truck is off and touch it to all the fuse's until one lights the tester up and you can sometimes find the draw that way.
