The hot wire from the battery too the alt has a short in it
where it says batt on the back of the alt replace that wire all the way too the seloniod
it lays right up against the engine and shorts out and the heat makes it brittle

1990 Ford E150, 5.8L 351 engine. When driving long distance I will stop and get gas. I shut the engine off and the battery will not have enough juice to start the car and I need a jump to start the van. ...


have you had the battery tested this could be the problem.if it was the charging system you wouldn`t be able to drive the car very far or at all as it would die from not charging from a jump start.you could have bad cable connections for the battery at the terminals and were the cables attach to the motor.just follow the ground wire from the battery down to were it fastens to the motor.pull on the cable as sometimes the cables go bad inside the insulation and can`t be seen.if the cable is bad internally then it will feel soft and move were the break is.do the same with the positive cable.check the connections and how clean the surface is were the cables attach.

The way to find the short is as follows. Using a 12 volt test light start with the hot wire(s) going to where you think the problem is located.( like the windows or door locks as you stated) Continue this process with all of the circuits until the bulb in the test light "lights up" when you insert the probe into the circuit wire. Bear in mind this type of problem can be very time consuming which is why vehicle electrical repair shops charge so much.

Sounds like a bad alternator. Most auto part stores will check these for free. All you have to do is get it off the van (which I know is no easy feat)
