Question about 2005 Ford F-150
We have 2005 ford F150 I was jumping my father in laws pick up, after that truck worked fine for about 70km. Then truck sat for 3hrs then started truck drove about 5km then lost all electrical power and truck died. Bought brand new battery which worked perfect for about 70kms, then same thing happened. Battery light comes on electrical gauge slowly goes to low then truck dies and cannot restart till battery charged again.
Most vehicles if you get the car running and unhook the positive battery cable it will stay running that is because it is running off the alternator. if it dies like your talking about I would most definitely say your alternator needs to be replaced. Most likely when you jumped your father in laws pick up there was a bad ground somewhere and your alternator got a surge of electricity and it fried it. Hope this helps.
