The first thing to do is to make sure the battery is good, have it tested and make sure its good and holds a charge, the next thing to make sure the battery is good is to disconnect the negitive battery terminal and let truck sit the amount of time is would take to drain the battery, this is overnite in most cases but im not sure about yours, next after it sits the amount of time then connect battery and it should start, if it doesnt then the battery is no good, also when the battery is tested have the charging system checked to make sure the alternator is charging the battery, after the battery checks out good and the alternator then the next step is to look all over the truck for any light on, like glove box or a light on the rear view mirrror, i will say that this truck is designed to shut down all power left on in side truck after i think 15min, i think you may find a bad battery is the problem but still check for any light on look closely front and rear for any lights. this is where i would start, the next thing would be a draw meter on the battery while you start to disconnect fuses from the box until the draw meter shows no draw anymore then you would see what system the fuse you pulled runs and then check that systems components, but lets start with the batt, and alternator and for any lights left on. hope this is helpful. good luck...

2000 Ford Ranger is killing alternators immediately after install


the best way to test an alternator is with a load test-partstores dont do that--battery may still have a bad cell even tho it tested good--an alternator can burn up charging a completely dead batt--make sure batt reads at 12.6volts and no less-----if it reads say at 12.3 its only 50% charged!

Not getting enough fuel to the engine in a ford expedition


I assume the battery is "good" because it has been properly tested? I hope so. It sounds like a failed alternator to me. Faulty batteries are the #1 cause of alternator failures followed by the alternator bearings and/or brushes being just plain worn out.

If you believe the battery is good because you recently replaced it, a failing alternator might be what killed your other battery.

Bad batteries kill alternators, bad alternators kill batteries. These couples either love each other or hate each other...there is no such thing as simply getting along....

YOU HAVE TO HAVE VECHICLE TOWED IN TO A GARAGE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS TURN OFF RADIO TO KEEP FROM LOSING THE CODE, THEN DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE TO KEEP FROM DRAINING THE BATTERY.IF YOU DISCONNECT ABS BRAKE MODULATOR UNIT FUSE AND RELAY YOU CANT DRIVE VECHICLE UNTIL TOW IN FIX,YOU NEED DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO FIX VECHICLE.NOT A HOME FIX.

Ther is some thing on in the car that kills the battery i thought that it has some thing to do withe theft system so i pulled the fuse and the battery still dieed


You are doing the correct thing, you will need to try and loctate the draw, you will need a meter connected to the battery that shows the amp dram, an amp meter, you turn key off and close all door and see the amount of draw on the battery then start pulling one fuse at a time until the draw drops, the normal draw may be about .03. good day.

When trying to start with ignition on, it clicks. You have to do it several times and then it cranks and starts.


Two things, either the battery is dead, or the wire connections are corroded. I would check the wires. get them cleaned off with a wire brush, check the battery with one of them floaty ball things, and it will tell you whether your battery is any good or not. One dead cell in your battery will be enough to kill it. Hope this helps.
