Question about 2006 Ford Escape

1 Answer

Hey my girlfriend owns a 2006 ford escape and noticed in the last couple days the battery light came on when she was either in park or when she came to a stop light, but dissappeared when she was driving. i put the battery on charge for a night cause the chrge light on the battery was red not green, didnt make a difference so i guessed it would of been the battery, so i replaced it today with a new one, same problem, heard that maybe my belt was loose, or wire was loose, need to know if it would be a bad alternator and should i just get a new one for her or could it be something really simple, thanks.

I would have it checked, guessing is too expensive. take it to a shop that does a lot of Fords or specializes in Alternators. The computer runs the charging system.

Start on a day you're not using the car. park it in a spot where any fluid leaks will be imeadiately obvious and if you see a fluid leak jack the vehicle on the spot and get under it and start looking for wet spots. It could be something as simple as a bad or loose hose clamp.

The battery light usually comes on when the alternator is not putting out sufficient voltage equal to or above the battery voltage. Sometimes the alternator can be generating enough voltage to make the light go out but not enough current to recharge the battery properly especially when driving at night with lights etc on. Eventually the battery will not have enough charge left to start the engine. The most common cause of low output is worn brushes but your description tends to suggest that the electronic regulator inside the alternator has an intermittent fault. An auto electrician will be able to diagnose the problem fairly quickly and probably offer to fit an echange unit.

How is the alternator belt? There might be a loose connection at the battery, alternator, ground cable. Without a lot of detail, there are 1 way diodes in alternators, when the diodes go bad, the current will go the way it's not to, when this happens, it powers the light in the dash. Try wiggling the connectors, maybe that would make the light come on, if there is a bad connection.

The little air holes above the gas tank hole don't work very well on these. I've noticed it too. Just hold the pump at a little bit of an angle when this happens which will allow more air to escape your tank.
