Question about 2006 Ford Taurus
When i put the alternator of 2000 ford on my 2006 ford it is no work .... both of them has 3 wires so why it is not work
Why would you even try that without asking that at the parts store
& having them both tested?

Could be a pinched wire that did not show up when new. May have worked thin over the years.... Though to locate at times..... Bulk head headers can be a culprit, any where a wire passes through or over metal parts. Check for corrosion near battery terminals and alternator as a corroded connector can be "seen" as a resistance to the alternator and it will output more amps to compensate.....

1 & 3 should be all you need. The middle one may be an extra ground or signal for PCM in another model. Colors on the harness are light green/red for pin 1 and orange/light blue for pin 3. OK?

Unfortunately if it was a rebuilt alternator it may have one bad diode causing it to bleed amps and drain the battery. With rebuilds this happens a lot these days. Either have the diodes tested or demand a different alternator under warranty.
