Your alternator has likely failed. Remove the alternator and have it tested at your local parts chain. Please let me know if you need instructions or have other questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like a bad alternator or your battery connections are loose, eliminate the battery as not being the issue. Then check your alternator. They can test these at any local Napa or advanced auto parts for free.

Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad


I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

I was driveing down the road in my 2003 ford f150 and all the lights went dim along with the guages going down like it was going to die so i gave it some gas then everything went back to normal later when...


this sounds like bad battery conections. take a part the terminals and clean off the corrosion. more than likely the is some corrosion that is hidden and once everything is clean and tight it should fix your problem.
