Seems that you have a power drain. If you installed any electronics check to see if the wire has an open section that is bleeding the system.
Check to make sure that when the glove box closes the light in side goes off. A sprung glove door will keep the light on and will drain a battery in about 3 days.
If you put a trailer hitch on the truck make sure that the grounding is done correctly. Lighting harness to trailer, trailer to truck. A poor ground will cause the electrical leak and drain the battery if the trailer in attached for a few day, less than 3.

Erratic battery light flash.Battery is only 1 month old,and just had a brand new alt. put on,and all was good except it whined like a super charger,so Oreilly's refunded alt and labor.Put the other alt...


It's likely an issue with the power or ground wire.

Corrosion can make strands unable to carry voltage.

I suggest replacing the wiring.

Thanks!

I just replaced altnator,car ran fine for 3 days now it keeps running down and shuting off after about15 min.alt light is not on and it jumps quick.could it be the batt?


You need to have the charging system tested.
The fact that the engine shuts down after a few minutes indicates that the alternator is not working. Once the engine is started, the alternator should provide sufficient electrical output to run everything in the vehicle except the starter. If the engine shuts down because of a lack of electrical power, you have an alternator problem; either internal or the wiring.

I got 04 ford focus good battery alternator but no charge also i check fuse box next t the battery and the other inside the car everything is good but my alternator still dont charge


1) check 10A fuse in the batt. juction box (eng. comp.) hot at all times.
2) check the large red battery wire to the alt. for good conn.
3) make sure the alt. is grounded properly
4) gray wire sent from the alt. to the PCM
5) blue wire sent from the PCM to the regulator (alt.)
6) small red wire power frorm the 10A fuse
if all checks out and still not charge replace the alt.

All gauges not working.


THERES A SIGNAL TO THAT OPERATED ON CURRENT FROM THE ALT OT THE ECM. CHECK IF ITS LOOSE OR MAYBE THE INTERNAL PART OF THE ALTERNATOR IS DEFECTIVE. THERES THE (RED) THICK WIRE TO CHARGE AND OTHER THINNER WIRES THAT SIGNAL'S THE ALTERNATOT OPERATION. DONT WORRY NOT BECAUSE THE ALT IS NEW OR REMANUFACTORED IT DOESNT MEAN ITS IN 100% WORKING CONDITION.... THEY FAIL ALSO WHAT EVER YOU DO REMOVE THE POSTIVE AND NEGATIVE WIRE BEFORE ETTEMPTING ANY WORK. ITS A BAD HABIT TO REPLACE A ALTERNATOR WITH CURRRENT ON.
