Does the alternator work? Does the light go out if you unplug the plug in on the alternator?

    It should be plugged in to the side of the alternator. Just because it's new doesn't mean you got one that isn't bad.

Check engine light on, battery loses charge


Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's service life and replacement will be necessary.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a 2004 ford explorer i changed my battery and alternator and my battery light and service engine soon lights wont go off


you might want to get a scan to see why the engine light is on. it would be unusual to burn the fusible links, but that's about all that could stop the alternator from charging. The links are along the wires from the battery to the alternator.

2003 ford explorer battery light on


Are you sure the alternator isnt "over" charging? if not, you may have a "loose" connection somewhere with the cables, or a malfunction in the dash cluster. Also, are you positive the battery is forsure good?

Ford Expedition Battery and system charge warning


If he replaced the battery that would have cleared the code. There is another issue. Was the alternator aftermarket? Just becuase it is new does not mean good. Those are easy to install I would return it to where you got it and try another.
