SOURCE: my battery light is staying on in my 92 lincoln towncar

Get out a volt meter, With the car not started check the battery you should be getting round 12volts.

Now turn the engine and check the terminals again you should be seeing about 13-14 volts. If its high it means the regulator on the Alternater has gone and it wont charge the battery because to much going to it and that would cause other eletrical issues, and if its low your looking round the same problem with the Alt.

Also check the serpenteine*sp is not to worn as it wouldnt be turning the pulleys as good and would cause issues as things can't work correctly.

Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.

SOURCE: 2001fors escort zx2. battery light flickers, window opens slower, headlights dim. do i need a new alternator

Yes, most likely. I noticed this with my F150, but it was only doing it when the engine was higher than idle. Take off (after removing battery connector) and have it tested. Most stores do it for free. If your nearest store charges, so somewhere else because they are going to be too expensive.

SOURCE: 2002 ford escort zx2 new alternator-new battery car dies when driving.

Under the hood is a fuse panel. On the left side of the panel there is a door that lifts up. Under that is a 175 amp fuse. You can check it with an ohm meter or just replace it.

I have a 92 Honda civic lx and it keeps stating alts and batterys . Anyone have an idea what it could be?


You either have a weak alternator, or a bad battery. The best way to test is to disconnect the neg. battery post while car is running. If the car stalls, you have a bad alternator. If it stays running, it is probably a weak battery. Check the belt as well cause if it's slack, it can cause the lights to go on. Good luck please rate this solution

What charges a 98 ford escort alternator?


That could be a bad battery. Try replacing the battery (cheaper than a new alternator). Usually, if it is the alternator, your battery will be drained and you aren't able to start the car without boosting. The dimming lights is the clue - lights run purely off the battery, not the alternator, as do most of the electric components.
