03 Taurus, battery light comes on. R&R bad alt &


You may have a a/c voltage leak comming from the alternator..If its a rebuilt alternator sometimes you get a bad one ..But make sure all your connections are good ecspecially the small wires coming out the back ..These are the field and sensor wires..Plus make sure all your grounds on the vehicle are not broken or missing..You can have good voltage but it may have a drop going to the computer because of a ground and cause the light to come on

Put in new alternator,shows charging and battery holding charge but battery light stays on. You start car and light stays off for about 15 to 30 sec. than on.


The alt should charge at around fourteen volls , any ways, yogi need to put another battery. A weak alt will kill a good bat.and vise versa

1997 ford taurus charging issue, checked connections, replaced alt and still having same issue. I also checked fusible links and all is good.


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Try replacing the battery connectors. Check the alternator wiring and battery cables if they are corroded. Something prohibits it from charging and one of it is corrosion.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2001 taurus not charging. 3.0 24 valve. Battery light does not come on at all. Tried 2 alternators. Checked fuses and current at alt. post. Checked fuse at fuse box.


Waa there current at the alt. post? Does the alternator charge on a bench? If so, then the problem is elsewhere under the hood.

Maybe check continuity of the wire between alternator and the battery.

Why would battery light stay on light stay on after changing alt


Follow the batt + wire to a large fuse. there are two one for the starter one for the alternator they blow the fuse when the alternatror goes and this will cause the alternator not to charge.

1997 ford taurus GL battery light stays on or sometimes dim alt. checks o.k. what is the problem.


When you say it check ok, can you please explain what you mean in more detail, because if your Alternator light comes on or is dim, your alternator is likely not producing enough amps to fully charge the battery. The battery may test good, but the alternator has to work too hard to keep it charged. Have a check run on the amperage output on your alternator to see if it produces the factory recommended amperage. You can get a tester or probably borrow one from Auto Zone auto parts if there is one near you. If not, you can buy an amp tested from your local auto parts store or you can take it to your local shop and they might test it for free.

Replaced alternator on a 2002 ford taurus, still showing low voltage engine light still coming on


You have to test the alternator output, should be about 14 - 16 volts.

Test your battery too, fully charged battery should be about 13 volts.

If these check out ok, the problem is the sensor or the wiring in the sensor circuit

check to see if there is power at the light green/red wire at the alt. If the is no power check the thirty amp fuse in the engine comp fuse box for the alt.
