Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
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
