2004 Ford Escape Electrical problem

I have a 2004 Ford Escape that the battery died on. I had the battery replaced. When I went to jump start my Escape from another car everything started up fine but something happened and my Escape's radio didn't turn on, the interior dome lights didn't come on, I can't can't use the remote to unlock/lock the doors, can't use the button on the door to lock/unlock unless the key is turned on, and the radio no longer works even while driving. I didn't smell any burnt plastic, All my fuses seemed fine and not fried. What can I do now?

This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.

How do i know when my alternator is going bad


If the batt light is on, the alternator is not charging the battery.
If the battery won't hold a charge, it could be failing.
If you are having a specific problem with your PT Cruiser or Mustang, let us know what it is.

My battery light on the instrument panel lit up and I replaced the battery. The light went out but came back on after 1 day and the car died and would not start.


Sounds like a charging system issue. Make sure battery terminals are clean with tight connections. Also have your ALTERNATOR tested. Autozone will do this for free.

2004 ford focus se replaced alternator couple of mnths ago went to start this morn battery dead charged battery still no start. jumped of another battery started but when removed jumper cables car died


Sounds to me that your battery has shorted out and will not take a charge.Disconnect the battery and try to charge it, then check to see if it has taken power with a volt meter. A shorted battery will take all the power from the alternator and run it to ground leaving no power to run the car. Also check the alternator output with a volt meter after you have checked the battery as a shorted battery can burn out the alternator.

05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it started fine but only runned for a few minutes and the engine started to stall and went off. tried to start it again and it wont turn with the same...


okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

So, dose it need a jump start every time? Have you tested your battery? Look, I'm suggestioning that your battery is messed up and your alternator is working now. Start your truck, and unhook the battery, if the engine keeps running, it's not your altenator or regulator. If it dies, then it's likely the regulator.
