Question about 2005 Ford Freestar
My 2005 Ford Freestar MiniVan Has a problem That Sometimes it will start and sometimes It will not. The Starting system I had checked by Checkers and they stated that the starter and the alternator were good. They said the battery was a little low though. I replaced the Battery and the Van started right up. Now the mini Van is doing the same thing again. The battery was replaced about 1 2 weeks ago so it is still new. What could the problem be
A late reply; I'm sure you have found the problem by now-
It sounds as if the battery (old and new) are not receiving sufficient charge.
Check the drive belt tension and add a cheap digital multimeter to your 'tools.' These can be had for well under $20 US and you can then check across the battery terminals to see if the charge voltage is between ~ 13-14.3 volts at an idle. In no case should it be lower than 13 volts with the engine running since the nominal battery voltage is 12.6 volts when fully charged.
You may have a separate regulator that is ill.
