Place a socket at the serpentine belt tensioner pulley ant tour it that will allow you to install the belt on the pulleys. If you don't have the belt routing or don't know. you can ask for it at you local Auto Zone free of charge
Note: I don't work for Auto Zone i just recommend it.

Amp light on my 1993 ford aerostar stay on. what could be the problem?

Your Voltage Regulator is bad or your Alternator has an Internal short. Make sure you have a belt on that pulley. If you do have a belt, then the best thing would be to go to any autoparts store and have the Alternator checked. Most of the modern Alternators have a built-in Regulator and most mechanics just switch the Alternator to eliminate the problem.

You may run down the Battery trying to drive somewhere for an on the car test. It is safer to just remove the part if you can not depend on the Van not getting you back from the autoparts store.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

Removal of 1997 ford aerostar power steering pump.

You have to find the belt tensioner. Then place a 3/8 th inch pull handle in the square hole on the tensioner body and push it away from the belt. Then slip the belt off of the tensioner pulley. It has a strong spring so make sure your hand is not pinched in something when you release the tensioner after the belt is removed. Some tensioners do not have a hole so you put a socket on the bolt holding the pulley.

The compressor on my 1997 ford aerostar is smoking. It happened when I turned on the heat and the pulley got really hot to the point it started turning red. It seems like it is going to melt the belt. What...

It sounds like the compressor locked up. Do not attempt to drive the vehicle in this condition, you'll destroy the belt or just stall the engine and could find yourself walking to your next destination.

For a quick "fix", check to see if you can get a belt from a parts store that bypasses the AC. If that is available, it can keep you going until you get a chance to get it fully repaired, or just drive the vehicle without an AC indefinetly.

Otherwise, you likely need a new AC compressor and all of the components and labor that such a swap entails... which will not be cheap.

Battery or alternator is in need of repair or replacement.
He can take the battery in to any autozone, murray's etc. to have it tested for proper operation.
If the battery checks out, he can also take in the alternator to have it tested.

How do i remove my alternator?

First thing is to locate tension pulley and put a box end wrench on the bolt in the center of this pulley, by moving the pulley up or down you can slip the belt off enough to relieve the tension. then disconnect the battery, the alternator has three bolts that hold it on the mount, remove those and then remove the two plugs and one wire that is held in place with a nut. take not the plastic connectors on the two wires. The new alternator is put on in a reverse manner.
