Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
I had the battery checked and it's fine. but when i try to start it, the battery gage indicates that its low. im not sure what the problem is. i've checked the fuses as well, my brother said it might be the alternator( i hope not). thank you in advance for your answer.
Turn on your headlights and see what happens when you go to crank. If loghts dim and stay dim, The battery is dead. If they go out and come back on you have a bad connection. If you have a voltmeter, At the battery posts you should have a reading of 13.6 v to 14.2 volts running. If in this range your alternater is fine. New batteries aren't always put in service properly so don't close your mind on that issue.
