Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
Taking over this car and the battery would not turn over the engine. The battery light is on and no other indicators lights are on. Used some one elses battery and it started right up. Removed that battery and took mine to be charged. Battery was dead.
Got another good battery and installed but it would not turn over. everything turns on but the battery light still comes on. I think the prson that took the battery out did something to it.
Does anyone know where I can get a layout of the fuses and relays. I don't have an owners manual and the identifier sheet is missing.

The "battery light" is an indicator lamp for the alternator that charges the battery.
Was the "good" battery you put in charged?
When the key is in the ON position (not running but on), the light should illuminate to show that the warning lamp bulb works, it should go off after starting the engine.
When the vehicle is running, if the the "battery" light is illuminated its a warning that the alternator is not charging the battery. A new alternator is needed here.
If the lamp goes off when running I suspect your battery is faulty.
