My 2005 ford explorer check charging system warning light

After the check charging system light went on the panel went out with all guages and the battery was dead. I jumped it it ran fine for a while then the same thing happened. Any ideas? I'm thinking alterator.

If charging light is on w/ engine running,the fault could be the alternator or another component of the charging system.remove, clean and tighten battery post connections to check for alternator output,use a volt meter or multi-tester set to 50 Volts DC,w/ tester on battery terminals it should read 12 volts W/ engine off;13 to 14 volts w/engine running.if voltage increases when alternator is spinning,suspect battery

1997 gmc sierra. interior light left on, battery dead, jump started,ran for 15 min. tried to restart after shutting off only thing that happened was drivers lock locks and 3 guages, oil , gas, and pressure...


You probably didn't run it long enough to charge up the battery. Put a voltmeter on it and see if it needs charging, or get it charged up, or get another jump and run it for a half hour and then see if battery is charged up enough to start the engine.

If the security light is on or flashing, you may need to reset the security system.

Electrical system is having problems and it doesn't want to start


Take it to Les Shcwab tire store to have the battery load tested, it can show good but fail on load test. Your warning light just shows the batt is receiving a charge, not whats happening under load. P.S. They don't charge to test.
