Maybe not a full time drain,sometimes alternators will work off and on...have it checked under load,at a shop.

Stecorbett:

May I suggest that you drive your car to one of the major auto stores and they can and will check your alternator for you to make sure it is good/bad.These places like AutoZone do this all the time. They do not charge for the check out. (Of course they are hoping that if you need a part you will buy it from them.

One other suggestion. If you do need a new alternator, get a rebuilt one. It is cheaper and most always comes with a warranty.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please take a moment to give me a rating

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

Car wont start has charged battery lights and radio come on new starter. drainging battery even though the battery is fully charged its reading its not tempature gauge reading hot but its not runn


If the problem began when (or soon after) installing the new starter, start checking there. Ensure that all cables to the starter are tight. As a second possibility, if the new starter was actually a rebuilt replacement, the solenoid could be faulty. (I went through three rebuilt starters on my son's truck until we got one that worked properly.)

Do you mean it won't start, or won't crank ?
The charging system would not affect starting.

Hello. My 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis died on the highway after the battery "alternator?" light coming on about 20 minutes prior. We replaced the alternator with a rebuilt and the light is STILL...


A ford needs a fully charged battery to work the alternator. You may burn out the replacement alternator by hooking it up to a dead battery. Get the battery charged and have it load tested. You may have a bad battery and it should be checked. http://www.cardone.com/english/club/select/electrical/protech/tech_bulletins/PT37-0006.pdf

Undo the battery for 10 minutes, plug it back up, let the car sit for 20 minutes WITHOUT trying to start it, then try to start it. it should work.

2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking


make sure battery is fully charged and have tested for a weak cell and check out the alternator and the drive belt and if the car has over 40,000miles it needs a tune up plugs wires fuel filter and if all this fails have the timing checked and don't forget the crank sensor to have it checked

Car wont start


First clean all battery terminals ensure there is no corrotion, after cleaning them light coat with a dab of grease to protect from further corrosion.

Although the lights may work, the battery may not have enough power to kick the starter over.

Since you specified no noise, suggest you check the starter solenoid first. Ensure the battery is good and holding the charge.
5 years old, time for a new one. 3 years old, need to have it check for CCA (Cold Cranking Amps)

Ensure your alternator is working properly. May not be charging the battery.
