SOURCE: Battery Charge

The best way is to get a voltmeter and check the voltage of the battery with the truck running and not running. When the truck is running, the voltage across the battery terminals should be aboput 14.9 volts (showing the alternator is charging the battery). With the truck off, the battery voltage should be about 12 volts (showing that the battery is holding the charge). From there, you should be able to tell which is bad.

SOURCE: Charging system

change your battery cables and check all wires on the alternator for loose connections, expecially the grounds.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Excursion battery light come on intermittently

Remove power to all aftermarket components, if you know how to use a multi-meter connect to power source inside vehicle.. Drive normal, if voltage drops below 12v while driving, it is faulty alternator. If bat light comes on and voltage is above 12v the plug on the alternator might be correded and throwing faulty light, or bad ground in gauge cluster...

SOURCE: good alternator & battery, but battery goes dead just sitting

The regulator could be sticking in the alternator. Unplug the alternator and see if the battery goes dead. I replaced an alternator once and the new regulator was bad.

SOURCE: I have changed the alternator and battery in ford

The battery cables or the circuits that operate your alternator are probably bad. There is also a good chance that the alternator is no good. I have gotten several bad alternators straight out of the box. Remember: NEW is not the same thing as GOOD. If new and good were the same thing, we would have no use for the word: "WARRANTY" I would recommend having your charging system tested to see what is causing the malfunction. You can waste a lot of your hard-earned dollars trying to "guess" what the problem is.

I have a ford kuga trend 2012 it has done only 30.000.ks it is now showing on the information dial awd malfuction ? what does this mean is it safe to dry ,how can it be fixed please


Perform an OBDII scan for stored faults. Look for speed sensor codes. No AWD should not be a safety issue. It will affect traction in wet weather and fuel economy.

Ford kuga completely shutdown, not switching on everything dead, dealer cant find fault, just stopped working, while driving


possible ignition switch--- check the weight of keys hanging in the ignition key as the movement will switch off the ignition
next check for a loose ign fuse or loose ground wire
run the fault codes to check for sensor failure or check for sensor wires not properly connected

2010 ford kuga with AWD malfunction light...runs well..seems to have happened since wheel alignment


Check Your ABS wheel sensors if one of these got hit or bumped to hard during your alignment then it will tell your car that one wheel is moving at a different speed than the others and put the car into what we call "limp" mode. An OBD2 scanner will tell you which wheel is malfunctioning.

My 2008 Mitsubishi Galant suddenly has no power at all. Brand new battery. Began with short beeps when key removed, then placed key in for a few seconds, all power restored properly until I tried to s


sound's as though the vehicle anti theft has kicked in ,was this directly after fitting battery or did the vehicle start and been driven and then this issue arose , if the latter then i'd get the alternator charge rate checked as may well have not recharged the battery when being driven and now the anti theft thinks as there is a drop in power the car is being stolen, contact a mitsubishi dealer for the reset procedure and then check the alternator is charging ok

My battery was boiling hot. Now car is dead.


Could be a couple of things:

The first could just be your battery shorted out internally, which is the cheapest thing to repair, just get a new battery.

The second would be the voltage regulator on your alternator went out letting too much juice into the battery, this would require getting both the battery and alternator replaced.

If you can get it running long enough to get it to a auto parts store, they have a way to test both the battery and alternator.

2008 sl awd Nissan Rogue, won't start Battery seems to have power making a clicking sound may be starter, having hard time finding starter location.


Know this problem was posted several years ago, but having same issue with my 2008 Nissan Rogue. We've tried everything short of having the battery replaced, (including charging it), and nada. So, tomorrow morning, that'll be our next move. Sucks, but best thing to die. Much rather than than an alternator, starter or solenoid.

2004 ford focus se replaced alternator couple of mnths ago went to start this morn battery dead charged battery still no start. jumped of another battery started but when removed jumper cables car died


Sounds to me that your battery has shorted out and will not take a charge.Disconnect the battery and try to charge it, then check to see if it has taken power with a volt meter. A shorted battery will take all the power from the alternator and run it to ground leaving no power to run the car. Also check the alternator output with a volt meter after you have checked the battery as a shorted battery can burn out the alternator.
