Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

4 Answers

2006 Ford Taurus "Check Charging System" light is still on after replacing the Battery AND alternator. The light seem to come on when I turn on the Air conditioner. It would go off if I switched the air conditioner off but now the light stays on. This has happened only since putting the new alternator on.

    We put a new alternator on today. As soon as we restarted the car the "Check Charging System" light cam back on and now the battery light is on the dash. The belt's have been tightened. All connections are fine as well. The odd thing is the car will start right up.

I have 2006 ford taurus check charging system and battery light on what's the problem help me please


Battery Light usually means the alternator is not charging correctly and needs to be replaced. Check charging volts, it should at 14 volts or very close to that number. If the number is low below 12 then the alternator needs to be replaced.

Note: A bad alternator can damage the battery & vise versa

Check charging system light for 2006 ford taurus


You would need to check the connections on the back of the alternator with a meter.
You should have battery voltage on the large wire and on the orange yellow wire.
The other two wires involve the engine computer which turns the alternator on after the engine starts.

Check charging system light comes on intermittant, 2006 taurus, any speed and any load, battery good, alternator replaced problem persists before and after


Check to ensure that the belt is tight. Sometimes the tensioner for the serpentine belt sticks and doesn't properly tension the belt. Usually there's a square hole in the tensioner that one can place a breaker bar into to gain leverage to move the tensioner.

Check for damaged or corroded wires on alternator. Also check connection to alternator, take off and clean. Alternator may be on it's way out. You might want to get it tested at garage or replace if problem persists.

Check charging system light on display shows battery


If you have a voltmeter check battery voltage with the engine running. Should be around 14.7. If it's only around 12 volts chances are the alternator is bad and needs to be replaced.

94 Ford Taurus Battery light pops on intermittenly usually when turning corners


You have an Alternator or alternator connector issue, have Auto Zone or Kragen test the charging system, it is free, most likely the alt will need to be replaced.
