Question about 2010 Ford Fusion 1.25
"REPLACE THE BATTERY". My son bought one of those and had the same problem. Crossley Ford milked that for a week that they kept it at the shop supposedly looking for phantom problem instead of replacing the battery as requested, finally all of a sudden they decided maybe the battery should be replaced. Problem solved... off the record I have heard the rumor thousands of those cars had defective batteries placed in them from the factory so maybe it is poetic justice when the dealers milk the warranty like they do for a problem that they already know what it is when the car comes thru the door. It's still the pits for the customer and the inconvenience that it causes them. YES, I know they CHECK good, they really are not. That is a problem that is a lot more common than people realize.

SOURCE: check charging system
Do you have gauges on this car also?
If so, you may have a problem with what is called a "current shunt" resistor. This will prevent the car from recharging the battery....accordianman

Your battery may not be holding its charge. Charge the battery and take a voltage reading. Then after a few hours take another reading andsee if the voltage has dropped. If that is alright, refit the battery to the car. turn off all the electrics anddo a voltage test. If the battery is discharging then ou will have to find what componant is drawing the voltage. I normally check the boot through the rear seats first.

SOURCE: Current drain
Check the light under the hood, the switch may be bad and the light stay's on all the time and over the visor. Check to make sure the vanity light is off also. It's just a start and i have known also that the 4X4 actuator will drain too. Keep me posted, be glad to help and it sounds like it's going to be a gremlin to find the battery drain.

if charging light is on w/ engine running,the fault could be the alternator or another component of the charging system.remove, clean and tighten battery post connections to check for alternator output,use a volt meter or multi-tester set to 50 Volts DC,w/ tester on battery terminals it should read 12 volts W/ engine off;13 to 14 volts w/engine running.if voltage increases when alternator is spinning,suspect battery
