Question about 2004 Ford Expedition
Your car would say "check charging system" only if your car was having charging problems. A car's alternator recharges the car's battery with electrical energy produced by the gasoline engine. It therefore recharges when the engine is running. You may be having trouble with the battery not performing like it used to. While this is likely because of sulfation on the battery's metal plates, it could be the alternator. To pin it down to the alternator, you'll need to run a series of tests.

Tips for a great answer:
How did you test battery and charging system?
Your charging system is computer controlled. Check for applicable trouble codes. To check codes yourself, at the least you need an obd2 code reader that will check manufacturer specific codes as well as po codes.
Take wire connector loose from generator . The two wires on the left should show battery voltage, do they? What is the voltage spec? This is with key off and no charger hooked up.
The two wires on the right are to and from the computer, To check those, at least, you need a digital multimeter that has a duty cycle or frequency setting, with engine running, should activity on both wires. You have a battery temp sensor that could cause problems.
