2004 expedition want run on its own alternator is charging battery is good but all warning lights are on and dies when i take charge off


How did you test battery and charging system?
Your charging system is computer controlled. Check for applicable trouble codes. To check codes yourself, at the least you need an obd2 code reader that will check manufacturer specific codes as well as po codes.
Take wire connector loose from generator . The two wires on the left should show battery voltage, do they? What is the voltage spec? This is with key off and no charger hooked up.
The two wires on the right are to and from the computer, To check those, at least, you need a digital multimeter that has a duty cycle or frequency setting, with engine running, should activity on both wires. You have a battery temp sensor that could cause problems.

My 98 lincoln continental keeps cutting off I changed the alternator and battery but my dash keeps blinking and it says check my charging system Wat could it be


Preliminary checks to the charging system should be made regardless of the fault condition. These checks include:
  • Check fuses/fuse links to the generator to make sure that they are not burned or damaged. This condition, resulting in an open circuit or high resistance, can cause erratic or intermittent charging system concerns.
  • Check battery posts and cable terminals for clean and tight connections. Clean the posts and cables to verify good electrical contact.
  • Check for secure connections at generator output, voltage regulator and engine ground. Also check connection at the power distribution box and harness.
  • Check generator drive belt to verify proper tension and no slip between the generator pulley and drive belt. Refer to Section 03-05 .
  • Check battery for full charge as described

You checked the charging voltage at the battery with a ? volt meter ? What was the voltage with the vehicle running ? 13.1 to 14.1 volts ?
BATTERY NOT CHARGING The IPC illuminates the battery not charging indicator in the driver information center when the following occurs:
?€¢
The PCM detects that the generator output is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM requesting illumination.

Chrysler battery charge light on


check the charging system and battery to make sure these are working properly. if the charging system is not working then the alternator will have to be check and possibly the PCM as the PCM controls charging voltage and the alternator continuously tries to run a max. check for a code in the PCM related to charging. this may help finding the problem.

Charging system not working


Have a mechanic check charging system and battery. Look for local "Mobile Mechanic" or buy new battery and take car to local parts store to check charging system (one where I live was willing to check for free). It's most likely your alternator has failed, on "easy side" could just be loose or corroded battery cables/connections (including connections at engine ground and starter (or main positive junction).
