Along with cleaning the battery connections make sure the alternator connections are okay. If that doesn't solve the problem have the battery and charging system checked out by doing a load test on the system. The battery may be weak.

Headlight switch turns my Bronco off?!


Sounds like a weak connection somewhere close to the battery.
The alternator should be able to keep up with the extra electrical load not to mention the storage capacity of the battery. So if the headlights are killing power to the key switch, something is weak between the battery and the key.
Could be a corroded cable, connection at the solenoid, or in the fuse box.

My 2002 V6 3.0 Ford Escape battery light sometime on, but it seem nothing wrong when I drove it, the engine start normally, horn sound loudly does anybody knows what happened?


Might be a weak battery.

Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid or starting relay, whichever the car uses.
Hope this helps.

Engine Died While Running


It may be a weak fuel pump. They give you a couple chances when failing. Did this happen before?
And yes, you may have a poor alternator.
Take a volt meter. And test the positive side of alternator. Ground the black wire to the engine or frame. Set the meter for 20 v. Or, take the car to shop. Or, call a mobile auto mechanic.
