Question about Ford E-150
The alternator may not be getting a voltage signal from the gauge or warning light to activate it, or it may be charging but the current is not reaching the battery due to a problem with the 10 gauge wire.

has anyone thought about the regulator, i think that its built into the alt, replace it and then see if the prob continues, you can get a pass on the alt test and still have a bunk regulator

Under Roadside Emergencies is the fusepanel layout.
Starting on Page 226.
20A in fuse location #2
However - this is the power for BOTH directions - left and right.
If only ONE direction does not work - and you have checked the bulb - either the relay or the switch are faulty.

you will need to do a test with a battery light disconnect the negative wire on the battery and connect one end of the test light to the battery and the other to the terminal with everything switched off if the test light is lit you have a draw if it is not lit then it is something else sometimes door switches and glove box switches wear out and need added lift to properly shut the open circuit down

I suggest checking out the autozone.com website and register the vehicle. It doesn't cost anything and will give you access to an online repair manual. The steps for replacing the alternator should be available there. Hope this helped and best wishes.
