1984 Ford Thunderbird charging light on

1984 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe charging light is on. I have a manual for the car, and have checked the following:1. Battery volts/ and connections are ok.2. Drive belts condition and tightness is ok.3. Alternator voltage and condition is ok.There are three different colored wires in a harness going towards the alternator. Two of the colored wires are connected to the alternator. However there is a yellow and black striped wire which has been cut. Do you know if this yellow and black wire should be connected to alternator?

    i have the same issue but the wires on the alternator are their and in great shape. The battery is good, as well as the alternator. I'd really like to start driving the car but don't really wanna be stranded on the side of the road. Any and all input helps, thanks in advance.

87 thunderbird turbo coupe misfire from idle until 3g then hitting boost n runs smooth


check that the turbo is actually working at the lower rpms.check to see if it is a variable vane turbo where the vanes for the turbine wheel can be altered to produce boost at lower rpms. The vanes are controlled by a actuator on the turbo and is controlled by a vacuum hose controlled by the ECM. The misfiring may be actually over fuelling ( mixture too rich as the boost is too low for the mixture)

I have a 1988 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe. The rear brake lights (which has a dual filament bulb) does not light up when the headlights are on but lights up when I hit the brakes... Fuses have been...


You have no power when the parking lamps are on. Do the front parking lamps work? If the front parking lamps work then you have an issue with the rear wiring. Use a test light to verify you do not have power at the sockets.

The only way to see why the light is on, or to shut it off, is to hook up the car to a hand-held diagnostic scanner to reset it and check engine codes.
