When you removed the old battery you cut the power to your cars brain box EMC or the like. Anyway now your car needs to relearn how to run efficiently. So all you need to do is drive it for a little while. I'm not sure how far before it will relearn but less than 100 miles I'd think. then retest it.

I have a new battery, my battery light came on in car


We do not know about the old battery or any other
issues prior

So continue on & diagnose the charging system &
whatever problem is there

It could be possible the alternator failed & cost you a battery

You can't throw parts at it, until you get it right

The car has to be tested

Obviously, you were sold a battery & nothing else

That is not how you work on vehicles

You do your testing first, to find problems, & correct
everyone as you find them & continue on

2011 Ford Edge shunting charge due to voltage regulator failure


The voltage regulator had failed partially and was not charging the battery, but had not failed enough to cause the Battery light to display a failure to the charging system. This failure can only be found by testing and provides very little feedback of the failure so you have to pay close attention to the details to identify the failure. 2011 Ford Edge voltage regulator failure shunting charge with no battery...

Lighter fuse


Yes.
The OBD connector for the scanner is powered by the same circuit as the cig lighter. If the fuse is blown, the testing facility can not access the computer on the car.

Car died while driving. The battery is new but the engine will not turnover when trying to start.


So why was the battery replaced? Could it be that your battery was dead because your charging is not working? I would recommend properly testing your charging system to find out why your new battery is now dead. Possible failed alternator or loose or corroded battery cables, or both.

I would start by testing the TFI module. If it is bad you will need to change the Hall Effect also as a bad Hall Effect will burn out your new TFI module. Here is a testing worksheet ~ http://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/images/tfi_worksheet.jpg

Computer "not ready" for emmissions testing


Your computer will re-set and be "ready" after a certain number of restarts and miles, depending upon how much you use the car it should take from a few days to a week. Surprised the tech didn't tell you that!

I bought a 2007 ford explorer with 16,000 miles, when I went to get a state inspection sticker, it failed. they told me it was because the battery was disconnected or they replaced the battery. I was told...


Apparently the code checker that they use tells them how long the computer has been recieving codes. If the battery has been unplugged recently, they may suspect that you have an engine problem, but the code has not shown up yet. It makes sense because I know of people who disconnect the battery to erase the codes then go get the car checked. One of my friend's engine light came on just after he left the testing station, so, he passed but had an engine problem. Run the car for a couple of days and try again.
