2000 Ford Ranger is killing alternators immediately after install


the best way to test an alternator is with a load test-partstores dont do that--battery may still have a bad cell even tho it tested good--an alternator can burn up charging a completely dead batt--make sure batt reads at 12.6volts and no less-----if it reads say at 12.3 its only 50% charged!

I have a 2003 ford focus wagon second hand. My battery died out and I thought the alternator was the problem. Brought my car to an alternator repair shop and they said the alternator is still good. I ended...


Lead acid batteries don't like being discharged flat, and it could now be damaged and unable to hold a charge. It does sound as though the voltage regulator part of the alternator is allowing discharge to ground when it should not. You would seem to have a good warranty claim on the battery given they did check the alternator and pronounce it OK.

More like a rsidual draw with the key off. Try disconnecting he battery at night and see if that helps. Your car may run rough for 10 miles due to the computer memory being cleard with the ground cable disconnected.

How can I check my alternator on my 1999 Ford Ranger. The Ranger died on the side of the road today, and all that showed was to check the battery prior for about 10 minutes.


well...whenever the battery light comes on in a vehicle its almost always a charging problem,i would suggest replacing the alternator and charging the battery before starting it,alternators were meant to keep a battery charged NOT charge a battery, hope this helps

My 2000 ford ranger and something draining battery


bad alternator possible or bad battery..even though its new that battery can be bad. I would take a volt meter and with the engine running check the volts of the battery..If the volts are 12 you need to replace alternator, if volts are 14 you need to check the battery. to check the battery hold the volt meter to the battery and have someone start the car..while the starter is cranking battery volts should not drop below 10volts.if they do your battery is bad.

Problem with loosing charge on battery it seems that the alternator is draining it. have replaced both and the same problem. have also checked all other connections on the motor and still no luck. any


is voltage at battery when engine running and headlights on around 13.5-14volts?
if so its not the alternator
do a current draw test with amp gauge in system with everything off 0.02-0.05amp good any more than an amp will drain battery over night something staying powered up or a short can cause this

Generic Electronic module.


The gem is behind the dash in the center, behind the radio. It controls whipers, anti theft, 4x4, cargo lamp, insterment cluster, plus a few other things. Hope this helps.
