Use a volt meter, connect to the battery before starting the car, voltage should be around 11.5v to 12.5v, then start the car, voltage should be 13.5v to 14.5v, then turn on all electronic devices wipers,lights, hazzards etc. voltage should be the same 13.5v to 14.5v, if it is then your altenator works, if not you should replace it. Let me know if this helps.

Take the car to an autoparts store and most will test the alternator for no charge. Hope this helped.

I have a 97 escort the battery and alternator tested good but when I unhook my battery cable when its running it dies what could be my problem


I would check the wiring coming from the alternator. If you know for sure that the alternator works then it shouldn't be turning off unless the alternator is not sending power out. I'm no expert on escorts but in general when you unhook the cables while the engine is running it should not shut off unless you have an alternator problem.

Have the battery tested, even new ones can be faulty. Then check the entire wiring harness between the battery and the alternator.
