After taking a picture or making a diagram, take the fuses out. All circuits tie together at the source of power, removing the fuses will isolate them. Then use a multimeter to check each circuit for continuity to ground. When you find the circuit that is grounded, follow it down to it's load[s] and go from there. Divide and conquer!

SOURCE: I have a '99 Ford F150 and the main belt snapped.

It would appear that some device that is belt driven is stalled. Find the pulley that doesn't want to turn. If they all turn (except the crank shaft of course) replace the belt and see what happens. If you do find a pulley that will not turn, you will have to repair what ever it it --- water pump - alternator- A/C - air pump - power steering or other device.

My ford f150 has a new battery and starts fine all day untill it sits all night then its dead


Someone will need to pull the fuses and disconnect the major electrical components until you find the power drain. You use a meter or test light to watch the battery voltage. It could be anything from a stuck relay, to a short in the wiring.

Could be a shorted out starter, or starter solenoid. If you dont know how to check or repair, maybe have ot towed to a repair shop. It may seem expensive, but its cheaper than guessing.

1999 ford f-150. replaced alt. charged battery started truck 11.5 volts and dropping. within minuets the bat was dead. had new alt checked it was fine. coult the fusable link be bad


I doubt it is the link. The only way to kill a battery that fast is a huge short. Your wires should be smoking. Is the alternator wire shorted? I have some short troubleshooting tips, but I'm not sure they would work on such a big short--it really should be almost obvious. The tips are here: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5925550-dead_battery_troubleshooting . These are generic instructions. Let me know if you have more questions.
