Assuming you have played with the child locks on the doors you may fnid that your particular car is missing the linkage from the interior door handle to the door lock. Apart from making up a rig yourself I would suggest going to a breakers yard or possibly your local Ford dealer

SOURCE: Battery wont charge in my 1997 ford crown victoria

In the 1995 and later Crown Victoria's, there is a fuse in the fuseblock that controls the alternator's charging of the battery. If that fuse is blown, your car will drain the battery and cut off as you stated.
Check the fuse block under the hood and the one located on the left driver side above the hood pull.

SOURCE: cylinder 4 misfire on a 2000 crown victoria interceptor

first cylinder 4 is the last on the passenger side . first pull the coil out and check if there is water where the plug is. if there is take the water out and dry up the coil. if you find water you got a crack manifold or a bad intake manifold gasket. if there is no water replace the coil. good luck

After changing starter and spark plugs on my 1990 Old tornato no spark from plugs where to next alternator? Can I check that without removing?


I would check the coil. Then the distributor and cap. If they are good make sure battery cables are tight and all grounds are connected to the frame as needed. Is your battery fully charged if not charge it. Also check your ignition switch make sure contacts are good

What else would keep the "Chek charging system" light on if battery starter spark plugs and wires have been replaced and if the alternator is good?


possible a bad regulator. Some alternators have the regulator as part of the alternator and others have it separate. If you did not have the alternator bench tested but simply used a multimeter to check voltage then it is possible that the alternator is not good as you can have 14.5 volts out put but it could be ac current as a rectifier is bad.

I have a 98 Ford Taurus. Somehow water got into alternator and back charged everything. the radio went out i replaced the alternator, the car started right up, but the battery indication light came and it...


Sounds like you fried a circuit or two. The battery light means the alternator is not charging the battery which you know.
The charging circuits will need to be checked, it could be a fuse or a fuseable link which is a wire that acts like a fuse.

Battery good, alternator good, starter good but my 1966 oldsmobile the alternator isn't charging the battery


Have you replaced the voltage regulator?
Unless you have changed the charging system and eliminated it, the alternator does not have a built-in voltage regulator like the newer ones do.
Be blessed.

The battery is good..how can i tell if its the alternator


Most auto parts stores offer testing for free. A volt meter can also be used to check alternator output. Connect the meter leads to the battery. The voltage should be at least 12 volts. If it isn't, then find out why. Just because a battery is new does not mean it is fully charged. If the battery voltage is OK, then start the engine and observe the meter. It should now read approx. 13.5-14.5 volts. If it does, then the alternator is charging. If it isn't, then the alternator should be tested. While your at it, you might as well check your belt tensioner for proper operation.
1. leave the engine running and the meter connected.
2. Turn on your lights and other accessories. (heater, radio, high beams)
3. Observe the meter reading.
The voltage should remain between 13.5-14.5 volts. If it doesn't, then determine the cause and repair as needed. If it does, then the tensioner and belt are probably OK. I hope this information is helpful to you and thanks for using FixYa.

My car keeps dying out, could it be the battery or alternator?


unlikely, if it starts the battery is good because it just started the car and the alternator is good because it charged the battery the prior time it was running. i would put some thought into a fuel supply problem, such as the pressure falling off rapidly after a start; or something getting hot in the ignition systrem and failing causing a loss of spark.

SOUND LIKE A DEAD BATTERY BUT CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS.IF NOT BATTERY DEAD NEED TO BE CHECK AND REPLACE.MAKE SURE BATTERY CABLES TIGHT AND BATTERY CABLES AND BATTERY POST CLEAN FREE FROM CORROSSION.AFTER REPLACING BATTERY MAKE SURE ALTERNATOR IS CHARGING BATTERY. WITH ENGINE IDLING BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD READ 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS. MEANS ALTERNATOR IS CHARGING BATTERY. IF NOT CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE AND CHECK ALTERNATOR BATTERY FEED WIRE AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRES, MAKE SURE WIRES NOT FRAYED OR BROKEN. IF ALL IS GOOD MAKE SURE ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT TENSION CORRECT.MAKE DRIVE BELT TENSIONER NOT BROKEN OR DAMAGE CAUSING DRIVE BELT TO SLIP OR CHECK ALTERNATOR CHECK ALTERNATOR PIVOT BOLT MAKE SURE NOT LOOSEN CAUSING TOO MUCH SLACK IN DRIVE BELT CAUSING BELT TO SLIP.WARNING TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES TO REPLACE THE BATTERY BECAUSE IF RADIO WAS LEFT ON WHILE BATTERY WAS DEAD WHEN YOU INSTALL BATTERY CABLES THE POWER SURGE WILL DAMAGE RADIO.

My 95 vortec Chev Blazer acted like the alternator was going bad lights dimmed battery quit charging. Right before the lights went out the radio started cutting on and off and the buzzer that tells you...


This is not just because of the alternator, you got to replace the rectifier circuit too. If the rectifier is not working good then the battery will not charge then you will get all the symptoms what ever you mentioned

Connect a voltmeter to the battery with engine running. Should be reading 13.5 to 14.5 volts if alternator is charging.

1997 Honda Civic EX power loss


start with the easy stuff. check the plugs. make sure they are not wet with oil leaking from the spark plug stem seals located on the rocker cover. Check your air filter to make sure its clean. Now for the slightly harder stuff. The spark plug wires should be changed every 80k or so. My suspect the reason for the power loss is most likely a clogged cat convert in the exhaust system. check your exhaust flow. Way to do that is to check the temp. of the exhaust before the cat and the temp. after the cat. If the Cat is plugged the temp before the catalytic converter will be abnormally higher than after the cat.

BUT if you are experiencing misfire of engine. I would go straight to replacing spark plugs and wires. Distributor cap and rotor.

Also check the charging system. make sure the alternator is charging the battery at above 13Volts. With all components on. ( radio/lights/highbeam/AC). Use a voltmeter and check at the battery positive and negative. if its not charging above 13 V replace the alternator.

good luck
