The charging system on that vehicle is computer controlled an can set DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Your best bet , have a qualified repair shop check it . Without proper tools (scan tool ) An service repair info you will not fix it .

First off,is the ac compressor turning?If so are the large line,near where you put freon in,cold?If the low side lines(large lines)are cold and sweating,and the evaporator box is dripping water on the ground,then the ac is most likely fine.There is a temp door in the ac blower box,that moves for hot,or cold when you select these comfort levels.This door is most likely controlled by a actuator motor.This motor is most likely bad.If it is control by vacuum,look for a broken vacuum hose,or one that has come loose under hood.

You need to have the transmission serviced. The wrench indicates that the fluid in your transmission is out of spec or you have an out of spec pressure condition.

2005 ford five hundred check charging system fault? I have heard it is usually the voltage regulator in the alternator so it is best to replace the old one with a new alternator, not rebuilt.


When the car is running check the voltage at the battery. Usually the voltage is high 13 or 14, this would indicate alternator is working fine. If you do not have a volt meter you can remove the negative cable from the battery while car is running. If the car keep running the alternator is working. If the car die then the alternator is bad. After the car crank the alternator provides all the electrical power for the car, it also recharges the battery. If your v-belt/fan belt/serpentine belt is loose or bad it can cause the alternator to not put out as it should. These are a couple check you can try. Some auto parts store where I live will put a volt meter on your battery to see if your alternator is putting out for free where I live.

Replacement of serpentine belt on a 2005 Ford five hundred


The actual serpentine belt does not affect timing. There should be a belt path sticker label under the hood. There is a spring tension pulley which can have a fitting cast on it for a racket or breaker bar drive. This is used as a handle, but on some units a firm hand can press on this tension pulley to provide slack for the belt to slip off and be replaced. Check Youtube for videos on this subject.

Car battery charge warning light stays


Have a load test done on the battery to check for failing cell. Have an auto electrician check the alternator for correct output at revs. Check drive belt for condition and tension.

My battery light came on and soon after, my truck stopped running while driving it. I replaced the battery. My truck runs for a little bit then all the systems shut down and the truck shuts itself off...


It sounds like it is the alternator. It is not charging the battery like it should be. It might be your serpentine belt is too loose also. Get that checked first. but more than likely your looking at replacing the alternator.

Battery is not charging, its start w/ jumper cables but doesn't charge!


This is either the battery not taking a charge or an alternator not putting out enough power. The way it is described, this seems more like an issue with the battery because you are able to jump start it and drive. The alternator is able to run the car alone without the battery, that is why you can do that.
