Yes, check voltage output with tester, with engine running, lights and a/c on should be more than 12v about 13.5-14volts if not alternator is not charging system

While driving car the engine fan motor started running sounding real loud and then the dash lites began flashing on and off the battery lite came on the lite with wrench lite came on


Bit vague but I would start with the coolant. Is there any coolant in the system ? Might have caused an over-heat.
Which warning lights flashed apart from the battery ?
Check your water and oil (by "water" I mean coolant).
An over heating engine will cause all sorts of christmas tree lights to go beserk.

Think I need to check the fuse for alternator to battery, can anyone describe it's location? 04 Mercury Monterey


In the bussed electrical center (BEC), check 10A fuse 50. You also might want to check 10A fuse 49 in the BEC. Fuse 49 feeds power to the PCM.

How do i know when my alternator is going bad


If the batt light is on, the alternator is not charging the battery.
If the battery won't hold a charge, it could be failing.
If you are having a specific problem with your PT Cruiser or Mustang, let us know what it is.

My van started off loosing acceleration the longer I drove it. I just got the rack and pinion fixed and now the heat doesnt work. I don't think the fan works. It blows a ton of steam out. The exhaust has...


Check the serpentine belt. The belt runs the alternator, water pump and power steering. Make sure the belt is on right and all the accessory like the water pump and alternator is spinning in the direction there supost to be. There should be a sticker under the hood or on the radiator shroud to how the belt is routed through the pulleys. Good luck and keep me posted.

If you have no dash lites< I would suggest checking either of the following as thse are the most common problems 1) chec your fuses 2) test the headlite switch, as for the brake lites I would again check the fuses and then move on to the brake lite switch and see if there is power going into the switch and coming out of the switch with the brake pedal depressed, if not it's the switch if there is power trace the wire back to the brake lites checking all connections in between for power. Finally test the lite pig tail ( socket ). Good luck and rember to rate all the solutions that you get on FixYa, thanx
