Question about 2000 Ford Explorer
Try another battery if this doesnt fix it you may need a new alternator alot of new cars and trucks will not run with out the battery hooked up all the older cars you could jump it and it would run off the alternator but times have changed cars are different before I would waste money on a new battery I would borrow one from another vehicle just to test it if the problem still exist than I would say you have a weak alternator also make sure all your connections are clean and tight at the battery and starter

I have a 2000 Ford Expodition, After changing the alternator for the third and final time, I jump started it several time till I could get it to a repair shop, the owner looked at several things and did a few test. then replaced the #1 fuse a 20Amp Power point fuse that was blown. it has worked fine ever since. BTW he did not charge me anything, made a new firend and customer.

that is the quickest way to check the alternator leave it iddling and disconect the earth cable if it stays running its ok or my own way would be to use a volt meter and if it has about 13 volts or there abouts its ok and that would suggest a faulty battery or somethung draining the current wken its not running

Testimonial: "Gracia! Thanks I was told this and just wanted to be sure. Can't afford to get bucked by the battery!!"
SOURCE: i have replaced voltage reg
Check all electrical connections from and to the altinator, if everything is good then its possable your remanufacterd altinator is deffective, the parts store can test them for you. You can never trust remaned parts theres always a chance that its a bad part.
