Have you checked the fuses?

Posted on Apr 20, 2013

  • maynard thompson Apr 21, 2013

    I have checked the fuses they are all good

  • Dodgey Dave Apr 27, 2013

    Check for 12v at the alternator (normally the thicker wire bolted on to 5 or 6 mm connector. Also check for a 12v supply at the plug that goes into the back of the alternator.If there is no supply at the thick wire of the alternator then check the fusible link at the battery positive terminal(norminally the thinner wire on the positave battery pole)

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Ranger - Has a BATTERY LIGHT on at idle,

There is a diode in most older alternators that when working properly put out the light u speak of. The guage has some age so - take ur truck to advance auto - auto zone or one of them - have them check the battery - if u had to get a jump and had a problem it might be time for a new battery. You don't say how old the battery or alternator is so have them looked at.
If the problem leaves you stranded again then you will know it soon enough. To avoid being stranded - buy a GOOD or BETTER jump box - in the winter u need this - -also you can for a short time - remove your battery and CAREFULLY hook your cables to your jump box - wrapping the POSITIVE cable in some kind of old rag [t shirt is good] put a little tape around it or otherwise secure it so it doesn't hit metal while your using it as a battery and this will get you home or to a shop.

I have a new alternator, new battery but will not charge . dash gauge shows low charge.


To verify if gauge is accurate, take to local autozone (or any good parts store) and have them do FREE charging system test and to load test your battery - both are free services.

Automatic transmission nissan altima 1999


My battery had a dead short in it which caused my transmission not to shift properly. The give away was that I checked to see if the altnator was putting out and it was not but the engine light was not telling me it was bad. I put a new battery in it and then the altnator stared putting voltage back in the battery. I had a dead short in the battery. The transmission worked fine after I changed the battery. Another problem was the fan for the air conditner and the windows would not work except when the battery charge was conected. This was my first time to see what a dead short in a battery would do. Hope this helps others with this problem.

How can I check my alternator on my 1999 Ford Ranger. The Ranger died on the side of the road today, and all that showed was to check the battery prior for about 10 minutes.


well...whenever the battery light comes on in a vehicle its almost always a charging problem,i would suggest replacing the alternator and charging the battery before starting it,alternators were meant to keep a battery charged NOT charge a battery, hope this helps

I have a 1999 ford ranger 2 wheel drive automatic


Sometimes this works, ABS light on, check engine light on, speedometer not working, and the automatics start shifting hard or not shifting at all? One bolt and the part is cheap, its weird how one part controls so much.
