Question about 2000 Ford Explorer
Test the alternator charging capability by connecting a volt meter to the battery terminals and starting the engine. The voltage should be at least 13 VDC.
If it's less it will not charge the battery enough.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your advice...it so happens that the 2000 bit the dust but I'm driving an 07 Explorer and certain things are beginning to work intermittently on it as well. It appears they(Fords)may all be tarred with the same stick so I'll be able to apply your advice and knowledge to this one also:) They sure do make a pretty SUV though!:) Thanks guys!"
Check the connection on your battery terminal ends. if they are loose or corroded that could explain the intermittent no spark. also could be a short somewhere but id check the terminals first. I had that problem once and the car did all sorts of weird things. airbag light, check engine light, randomly wouldnt start until i would mess with the battery.

Your problem description can be summed up as "BATTERY LOSING POWER WHILE DRIVING". Your being able to start next morning shows good battery. If as you say alternator is good then your problem is a disconection between battery positive and alternator positive terminal. Link these 2 directly with a 6sq, mm plus wire and run the car for 45 minutes.
