My 95 Taurus SHO's "check battery" light had been sporadically coming on. I threw in a new battery. Now it's on all the time. Should I throw in an alternator now?

The check battery light means that your car is running off the battery, and the charging system is not working. A good plan would be to recheck your battery cables and connections, then remove the alternator and have it checked. Most autoparts stores will do this for free. The alternator is the most likely suspect!

On one of the occasions when it won't start back up, someone will need to figure out if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors to be able to troubleshoot the problem.

First check the alternator drive/serpentine belt and make sure it is tight and not worn out. Replace it if it is cracked or glazed. Clean the battery cables and battery posts. With a voltmeter check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. If you have less than 13.5 volts the alternator needs replacing.

check the solinoid, also see if all the connections to the battery are good and in working order. Ensure the post on the battery are tight. Could also be your relay between the starter and groound. Good Luck.

your best bet for a diagram is to ask for a suspension printout at your local dealership. Or take a look under any 86-95 Ford Taurus SLO, SHO, or Sable and they use the same design (the SHO just uses slightly different parts. Here is a link though for a SHO parts list with part numbers. Hope this helps.

Check the power cable going to the starter. If even a little bit loose it may cause your problem.
