SOURCE: my 2005 ford explorer the
I have the same problem. In the past I have had the alternator replaced and battery replaced. Once it started this again and took it to a different garage they told me it is a known problem for explorers and expeditions and it maybe that the warning sensor is bad which is located in the alternator, or the computer board is bad. I have choosen to not replace anything and it has been almost two years and everything in that department seems to be fine. When the check charging system goes off I check the battery gage and nothing changes and I also check if any lights go deem, and they dont. I have not had any problems starting my vehicle either. The beeping noise can be agnoring, but i don't want to keep throwing money at it only for it to happen again.

Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
OIL LIFE AT XXX%.”
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.

if the car is charging and you have power and ground to the alternator and in the plug then the alternator needs the rectifier either resoldierd at the stator connections or it needs to be replaced.

if charging light is on w/ engine running,the fault could be the alternator or another component of the charging system.remove, clean and tighten battery post connections to check for alternator output,use a volt meter or multi-tester set to 50 Volts DC,w/ tester on battery terminals it should read 12 volts W/ engine off;13 to 14 volts w/engine running.if voltage increases when alternator is spinning,suspect battery
