The speedometer in my 1999 Ford Expedition keeps bouncing I was told it was bouncing around because I got a new battery and my altenator was not properly charging it. . .is that true?


I never heard this, but it may be a bad speedometer sensor(which is located on the transmission). If the alternator is not charging, try this. Turn on your truck and while it's running remove the ground battery cable, if it dies on you, then you need a new alternator, if not then your alternator is working like it's suppose to.

How can I check my alternator on my 1999 Ford Ranger. The Ranger died on the side of the road today, and all that showed was to check the battery prior for about 10 minutes.


well...whenever the battery light comes on in a vehicle its almost always a charging problem,i would suggest replacing the alternator and charging the battery before starting it,alternators were meant to keep a battery charged NOT charge a battery, hope this helps

Generally, you can check and test alternator with this procedure...

1. Clean the positive and negative battery terminals to ensure a good connection with the tester's clamps.
2. Connect the positive and negative clamps to the appropriate battery terminals. The clamps must make firm contact with the battery terminals or the test results will be inaccurate or the tester may not work at all.
3. Turn the tester on and choose the option for "full charging system test." This will test your battery, starter and alternator and provide the most accurate picture of the problem.
4. Follow the directions on the tester's screen. These instructions will include cranking the vehicle after the battery test is performed, holding the engine at a certain RPM range and turning on certain accessories.
5. Read the results displayed on the tester's screen. The tester should scroll through the results, starting with the battery, then the starter and finally the alternator. An alternator test result showing diode ripple problems indicates a bad alternator.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

    What does the battery light on mean the light was on in my car and it slowly lost power


    This is usually an indication that the alternator is no longer charging the battery due to the a belt missing or the alternator itself. Should have the charging system checked.If available. Autozone or Advanced Auto will generaly check these for you at know charge.A bad battery can cause the alternator to fail.

    Curious what the output should be for alternator 2003 ford focus


    SOUNDS LIKE AN ALTERNATOR PROBLEM THE SYSTEM IS NOT RECHARGING ITS SELF AS IT SHOULD AND THEREFORE IT IS DRAINING THE LIFE OUT OF YOUR BATTERY AND WILL EVENTUALLY KILL THE NEW BATTERY TOO.

    I just replaced the battery and the alternator on my 99 ford windstar with new ones. I drove it for 2 miles and the battery light came on indicating that the battery is not charging. It has the 3.8 V6, any...


    Your alternator is not putting out any power. To check the alternator, when the motor is running, check the voltage at the battery. If the voltage is not between 13.8 and 14.2 volts, the alternator is malfunctioning. Chances are that the alternator killed your last battery. Make sure that the belt is at the proper tension so that the alternator is producing the voltage neccessary to charge the battery.

    1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee intermittent voltage drop, lose electric


    I wont list this as a solution, but it seems that working in the area of the alt may have moved around some wiring...the alt may be OK but perhaps an adjacent wire (maybe a ground) is not well connected. Also check crimped on wire loops on alt connectors..they like to corrode at the crimp where it crushes on the actual wire.
