Question about Ford Expedition
You will need to check and see if you are getting voltage to the votlage regulator wire on the alternator , also there should be a charging system fuse , check to see if it is blown ? Sometimes if a vehicle has been jump started it can blow the charging circuit fuse or if its been accidentaly jumped backwards can vlow the fuse as well ! Is the replacement alternator a remanufactured unit ? Sometimes these are bad right out of the box ?

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have
the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty
alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will
surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be
replaced to resolve the problem.
If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator
then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's
service life and replacement will be necessary.
You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery
connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This
will reset the system and can get the battery light off.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
