Ford truck was running fine then it just shut's OFF, afterwards did start once stayed on for a couple of minutes then shut off again. A friend thinks it's the computer after checking the car. Note I did pressure wash the engine 2 day's before and didn't use it till now.

yup..it is the alternator. you don't normally repair alternators there right? it could be a diode problem or a regulator problem.
if you know how to replace the diode assembly in your alternator then you can try and also the IC regulator also could be the bad part.
you may want to check the simplest thing....the belt. if you have loose alternator belt then it could just be that one.( least of all cost )
tnx 4 using fixya,

you have a voltage drop.fine the damaged wire going fro mthe positive terminal of your battery to your alternator.fix this or it will keep working the alternator and draining your battery.

verify the belt tension-er is staying tight and not floppy around at higher RPMS,or the belt is not slipping ,have the alternator checked at higher RPMS not at an idle.the last is make sure the single wire little wire connector is tight
