Voltage sensing circuit could have a problem, if the sensor is bad that senses the voltage coming from the alternator or battery it will set this warning off, follow the wires from the battery and alternator untill you find what looks like a little module or a clamp around either the negative or positive battery wire or alternator wire. see if the vehicle reacts when the module or sensor is moved around a bit

2000 Ford Windstar, My battery will not stay charged. replaced altenator, still nothing


I would check age of battery. Batteries these days are made with cheaply coated parts and only last about 5 years. Many times a bad battery will over work the alternator making them go out. Since you have changed the alternator I am assuming that you checked and cleaned the battery connections.

The charging system on your vehicle is computer controlled . Your vehicle is a rolling computer .The instrument cluster has a microprocessor inside , there is also a body computer ( SJB ) smart junction box , Engine computer etc... they all communicate on a serial data network , C.A.N - controller area network . It's hard to know what's wrong when you don't know how it works . There could be codes stored in the computers , these will not always turn on the check engine light .

The first question for you is, What is the charging output for the altenator at idle?? If less than 12.3 volts, replace altenator. Typically, the altenator gets tested at 2500-3000 rpm on a bench tester. Your problem may be in the low rpm output range.

2002 ford windstar check charging system light stays on when i replaced the altenator and battery


Check all fuses, both inside and outside. Use a volt meter to check the output of the alt., by setting the meter to D/C/ volts, put the black wire on battery GROUND and the red wire on the big terminal of the alt.,,, which the wire is held on with a nut and washer, or a lock nut.If your reading is around 12.0 - 12.6,,, try another alt....
If the reading is 13.8 - 14.6 ,, you have a problem between the alt and the battery.
Hope this helps.
