This sounds like a voltage regulator problem, the voltage regulator is built into the altenator, check your connections to the altenator specfically the ones that plug in, make sure they are secure. The plug in connections provide signal for how much output is needed from the altenator, the regulator provides the output. Check the battery voltage with a voltmeter, turn on everything electrical, rev up engine and see if voltage goes over 14.5 volts, it should be steady. Hope this helps, let me know.

98 crown vic charge light goes on and needle goes to full charge when excelerating?


Sounds like the voltage regulator has failed.
Check voltage at the battery with the engine at idle and again with the engine at cruise speed. Voltage should be around 13 volts at idle and 14.5 volts at cruise speed.

The chargeing light won't go off


Usually it means the altenator is not charging and that the car is running on the battery reserve, so the car will run until the battery goes dead. Sometimes the light will come on if the altenator is over charging the battery, producing overly high voltage to your cars electrical system. Not good either..

Hello ,i have a 1996 ford louiville truck, it has a detroit series 60 DD3 12.7l engine, i start engine and is all ok , ten minutes or so the orange warning light on dash comes one and stays on , all seems...


It looks like the altenator is overcharging. Take it in to an autoelectrician and have it checked out on their bench. 15 amps is a bit high for a charging rate, 14 amps is just about the limit.

1988 ford ranger 4 speed v6 problems keeping it running.


Fuel filter? There's also a filter on the suction intake inside the gas tank, it can get plugged up. I'd definitely try the filter if you haven't. Good luck. Have you checked the fuel psi coming from the tank? If it's fuel injection, it should be pretty high, 55 - 60 psi. Let me know if I can help.
