If the car is charging and you have power and ground to the alternator and in the plug then the alternator needs the rectifier either resoldierd at the stator connections or it needs to be replaced.

I have 2006 ford taurus check charging system and battery light on what's the problem help me please

Battery Light usually means the alternator is not charging correctly and needs to be replaced. Check charging volts, it should at 14 volts or very close to that number. If the number is low below 12 then the alternator needs to be replaced.

Note: A bad alternator can damage the battery & vise versa

Check charging system light for 2006 ford taurus

You would need to check the connections on the back of the alternator with a meter.
You should have battery voltage on the large wire and on the orange yellow wire.
The other two wires involve the engine computer which turns the alternator on after the engine starts.

Check charging system light comes on intermittant, 2006 taurus, any speed and any load, battery good, alternator replaced problem persists before and after

Check to ensure that the belt is tight. Sometimes the tensioner for the serpentine belt sticks and doesn't properly tension the belt. Usually there's a square hole in the tensioner that one can place a breaker bar into to gain leverage to move the tensioner.

2004 ford taurus. turn the key to the on position all gauges and lights work. try to start and every thing goes completely dead for several minutes. its like something resets and the lights and gauges will...

Start at battery and check and clean all connections. Check ends for corrosion, or weak points, as well as remove and clean all ground cables. That's where I'd start.

Battery light comes on and it also says check charging system

Hi. If this light comes on when your alternator is not making electricity and the car is running off of battery power alone. you'll either need to replace your alternator belt or the alternator, but before you do this, go ahead and check your battery connections. Sometimes cleaning the connections will fix a charging problem.

Ck charging system light and battery indicator light came on twice and stayed a few minutes on 06 taurus

Check for damaged or corroded wires on alternator. Also check connection to alternator, take off and clean. Alternator may be on it's way out. You might want to get it tested at garage or replace if problem persists.
