This Problem Surely Can Be Fixed At Home, But as Far as Rebuilding the Alternator Im Not sure that it is Cost effective, In other Words To Purchase One With A Warrentee on it Would Be Better than Rebuilding one Without A Warrentee.
The Ford You Speak of is Not Sold In The USA and this Impares me as far as Directions. I Can With 30 Yrs Experiance ADVISE you to Buy A New Alternator And Install it Yourself.

Battery light keeps coming on even though the battery is fully charged in my 97 ford falcon wagon

Hi Tracey I'm just trying to make sure your battery has not gone dead at all and the battery/charging light stays on right if this is the case there are two plugs on top of your altenator the smaller one is the connection for the battery light it maybe loose and not making contact which it will make the light stay on try to wedge a rolled up match book cover in with the plug and see if it go's out if so try to get a dude with brains to fix the inside metal connector to fit tighter on the pin don't use dielectric grease it's not conductive and will make it worse get the plug to fit tight and if you have to leave the match book cover or whatever you used to keep it that way

I have a 99 ford expedition eb ive had the battery n alternator tested both reading at the right volts but the battery keeps dying.... ive made sure every thing was tight n where they should be n...

If the alternator is charging the battery, and it goes dead overnight, you have a short to ground in the wiring that is draining the battery.
You can try disconnecting the negative battery cable and see if the battery stays charged when the engine is off.
If it still goes dead, the battery could have a dead cell.

Hi im having problems with my altinator the light is on in the dash and my battery is going flat in one day. The altinator is charging at 8 and a half the car is an eb ford falcon station wagon 92 model...

Hi Jenny,
Your alternator should be recharging at 13.5 - 14 volts DC. I would say that is what makes your battery flat if you are only recharging 8.5 volts. Replacing the alternator would be indicated. Since that model car was only produced in Australia and New Zealand I dont know the availability of parts in your area. I did locate one on Ebay.AU for AU$188.00 with the shipping and could be posted to you. You may check your local auto garage as to the possibility of rebuilding the one you have......Mike

Ford 2003 Expedition EB. Check Charging System

Its probably the alternator. It will need to be tested on the vehicle with the engine running and the light illuminated. Measure the battery voltage with the engine running. It should be at least 13.5 volts. If it is lower have the alternator tested at a shop with a charging system tester.
