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.

Sounds like plastic clicking when i accelerate in my 2000 ford taurus lx . Also the battery indicator light comes on and at the same time the temperature gauge goes haywire. What could this be???


Looks like you have an wiring issue.
Battery light comes on and stays on, indicate your alternator is not charging the battery.
But the light goes out and temp. light come on.
And im assuming the its not over heating.
you need to see an auto electrican to diagnose the wiring issue

Battery on 06 silverado runs dead over a few days of not being used.


More than likely a parasitic drain.
Many times in courtesy system--Check after dark for any system lights burning, especially lighted mirrors if present.
If not found, drain test required.

I have a 98 Ford Taurus. Somehow water got into alternator and back charged everything. the radio went out i replaced the alternator, the car started right up, but the battery indication light came and it...


Sounds like you fried a circuit or two. The battery light means the alternator is not charging the battery which you know.
The charging circuits will need to be checked, it could be a fuse or a fuseable link which is a wire that acts like a fuse.

Why is the battery light on in my 06 saturn ion 2 and I just bout the battery a few weeks ago?


Your charging system is in need of service.
The battery indicator is to inform you that the CHARGING system is not in good working order.

Battery light indicator keeps coming on? stays on for few seconds sometimes a few minute. Flickers on and off while driving or turning steering wheel


two things to be checked, the battery and the alternator. These can be checked in many auto part stores free of charge. I suspect the battery is bad.

1997 Ford Taurus won't start


Hi i may be able to help with the problem, it sounds like you have a charging or battery issue. first i you need to check the battery connections, then find out if you have any charging problems, you will need to take the vehicle to an advance auto parts to have the charging and starting system checked. it may be something as simple as a bad connection or an alternator.

2004 Taurus. Will not start at intermittent


I have the same car but don't have that problem with this one however, I did with the 99 I traded for this one. I figured out that if the wheels were not left straight, any degree of angle facing either direction, would freeze something in the steering column and not allow it to start. Had it towed twice before the tech said he had the same problem in the past. Never happened after that. The prob I had with the 2004 Taurus, bought a cheap battery from wal-mart and it ran everything but my car, tech said it's probably the reason the alternator had failed. Check your brand of battery. My battery light stayed on for two months, started fine, switched the battery from the wal-mart one, light went off instantly.
