You would need to check the connections on the back of the alternator with a meter.
You should have battery voltage on the large wire and on the orange yellow wire.
The other two wires involve the engine computer which turns the alternator on after the engine starts.

I have 2006 ford taurus check charging system and battery light on what's the problem help me please


Battery Light usually means the alternator is not charging correctly and needs to be replaced. Check charging volts, it should at 14 volts or very close to that number. If the number is low below 12 then the alternator needs to be replaced.

Note: A bad alternator can damage the battery & vise versa

2006 Ford taurus won't start, starter, altlernator, battery replaced, ignition starter switch, neutral safely switch changed, still nothing


I looked at info for your security system, it is starter motor disable. I didn't see 06 ford Taurus in my database, so I looked at 05.
Battery has a full charge and battery connections all good?
We can usually do some tests to see if starter motor will crank the engine, but, if the security is the problem, it still won't start.
You can check for applicable trouble codes? Try a different key?

2006 Ford Taurus Charging error message and Battery light


What error message are you receiving? If you are talking about your check engine light (CEL) then you will need to clear the codes for it to go away, or it must be driven through a series of specific events for the computer to clear itself, just take it down to your local auto store and have them scan and clear codes. At 14.5v you should not get the battery light, you may want to check your wiring to your ECM. With your old alternator running at 16v I would say it is possible something was damaged. I know many manufacturers do not protect the computer from spikes from alternators, I have seen this twice in the field, and actually had personal experience as well. This will require much more knowledge about your vehicle and electricity to understand what pins to test and what you should be looking for.

My 95 Taurus SHO's "check battery" light had been sporadically coming on. I threw in a new battery. Now it's on all the time. Should I throw in an alternator now?


Hi:
The check battery light means that your car is running off the battery, and the charging system is not working. A good plan would be to recheck your battery cables and connections, then remove the alternator and have it checked. Most autoparts stores will do this for free. The alternator is the most likely suspect!

Ck charging system light and battery indicator light came on twice and stayed a few minutes on 06 taurus


Check for damaged or corroded wires on alternator. Also check connection to alternator, take off and clean. Alternator may be on it's way out. You might want to get it tested at garage or replace if problem persists.
