Ford Focus Alternator problem

My ford focus broke down on the way home from work, we towed it to nearest place to get fixed and they said that the alternator/regulator needed to be replaced. This was done but the battery light came on when i got the car back. i took the car back and they put another alternator in, but the light came on again, they changed the battery but the light came on again. both alternators were cheaper than getting one from ford... could it be that i got two dodgy alternators in the space of two weeks??

    Could there be any other issues appart from a dodgy alternator... it's a 2003 model. ie weird wiring where something else is not working which is making the light come on on the dash? The alternator i got was $450, it said on the box that it was made for a ford Focus and distributed by AES, it was made in china couldn't find the brand - opposed to the one from my local ford dealer which was $700.

Very possible if they were from auto zone or cheap knockoffs,Best to have original rebuilt or buy buy factory alt.

You may want to have your charging system diagnosed. It is possible that your alternator quit working. And this particular alternator could be a bit challenging if you've never done it or have the know how. Good luck!

Do an alternator test, boost car and with volt meter test at battery, remove jumper cable, reading at battery with car running should be about 13.5-14.5 volts, if you dont have that bad alternator
