yup..it is the alternator. you don't normally repair alternators there right? it could be a diode problem or a regulator problem.

if you know how to replace the diode assembly in your alternator then you can try and also the IC regulator also could be the bad part.

you may want to check the simplest thing....the belt. if you have loose alternator belt then it could just be that one.( least of all cost )

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: 03 ford expedition interior lights stay on and door ajar reads

This is a very common problem with Fords. I have one that was doing this as well. What works for most people is pretty much what you have tried - spraying inside the latch all over with WD40 Until it's coming out the bottom of the door. If this fails to work, the switch probably needs replaced. The switch is located inside the door near the latch. It should be pretty easy to find once you have the door panel off. Look for the wires leading to it. A new switch is usually very inexpensive, but may have to be purchased through your local Ford dealer. If you're not comfortable taking the door panel off, a mechanic should be able to do this repair for you in less than an hour of shop time.

SOURCE: The battery keeps going dead on 1999 Mitsubishi

There is an alternator fuse located on the positive battery clamp or in the fuse block under the hood. if it is part of the positive battery clamp it is a dealer only part and will run $10 to 20 dollars. If it is in the fuse block you should be able to get one at the auto store and modify it to slide in easily. Get a flash light and check all of your fuses carefully. The blown fuse may be hard to spot. The design of the car lets the battery go dead with out even turning on the charge light on the dash to let you know you are not charging the battery.

I have a 99 Ford Expedition I was coming home and the battery light came on. Went to the part stor and put in a new battery,now my heater won't turn on and my light don't turn on and my gauges jump around....


This sounds more like a faulty alternator. Sometimes an alternator can still produce adequate voltage and amperage to keep everything running, but they are governed by a voltage regulator. If the regulator goes bad, the alternator may have little of no output, or it will not limit itself properly causing gauge problems, and various light on the dash to not work or sporadically come on.
I'd take the vehicle to have the alternator tested at least.
Don't settle for one of the part store tests, they won't give you all the information you will need. A properly working alternator should charge anywhere between 13-14.6 volts and depending on the vehicle 90-150 amps.
I hope this helps in some way

Did you get the wires all back in place? What voltage do you have at the output of the alternator? Measure the voltage with the engine running and not running.

I have a 2000 Ford Expedition. The battery was


Hi:
The battery light is telling you that you are running off the battery,and you have a problem with your charging system. An easy way to check your alternator is to get a volt meter, and measure the voltage of your fully charged battery. with your expedition not running, it should read about 12.6 volts. When you start your expedition, it should read approx 14 volts if your alternator is working properly.
Of course, check all of your connections first, and most auto parts stores will check your alternator out for free, so they might have a chance to sell you one!

The red battery light on my 2001 Ford Expedition 4.6L (73,000 miles) just came on tonight. Is it the alternator, belt, tensioner, or just battery cables? Replaced battery less than 2 years ago with Optima...


The alternator change is not that difficult. I would take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them test the alternator output. Check the battery cables and make sure they are clear of corrosion and are tight. A parts store can also test the condition of the battery. Most parts stores will check the alternator output and battery for free. If you visit the autozone.com website, you can also register your vehicle information and have access to an online repair manual that will show the procedures for changing the alternator if it is necessary. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
