Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
Runs fine - new battery - new alternator
12.6 volts battery - when not running
13.6 volts when running
The "check charging system" light comes on intermittantly when running and during this time battery voltage is steady at 13.6
The warning only stays on for about 10 seconds
Check all connections to alt. and battery to make sure they are clean and tight, as it sounds like a loose or dirty connection someplace. Possibly something not tightened completely after battery and alt. replaced? (just enough to get the annoying light to go on occasionally)
