Your alternator should power everything when engine is running. Battery is only for start up. Test voltage with a multimeter when engine is running , should be 14V or more . Any less indicates low alternator output.

You may have to run another hot wire from the back of the alternator to the battery direct.
Use 10 or 8 guage wire.

The alternator change is not that difficult. I would take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them test the alternator output. Check the battery cables and make sure they are clear of corrosion and are tight. A parts store can also test the condition of the battery. Most parts stores will check the alternator output and battery for free. If you visit the autozone.com website, you can also register your vehicle information and have access to an online repair manual that will show the procedures for changing the alternator if it is necessary. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Odometer won't work unless headlights turned off, radio lights dim, blinker won't blink all the time now battery light comes on but battery tests good. Intermittent issues getting worse. Horn


You probably have a bad ground in the electronic instrument cluster, or cluster connection to wiring harness. I would recomend you have a qualified auto tech diagnose it. It is not a easy fix.

When your battery light comes on it is telling you that your ALTERNATOR is not charging your battery! So you need to replace the alternator.

You can verify that it is bad by taking the car or just the alternator to an auto parts store and having them test it for you for free.

I have a 2000 ford expedition and it will not turn over and it is not allowing the radio to come on either the battery is fully charged lights on dash come on but nothing else happens no clicking no trying...


If the battery is fully charged, the headlights come on, etc,,,the alternator is working, as it was charging the battery the last time it was running, so I would see it as more of a starter/security issue........but becasue the radio is not coming on, I would seriously look at both the engine fusebox and interior fusebox for any issues that might be there......

Definetly sounds like an electrical problem, though

Why do the lights on my 2000 Ford Explorer flicker -interior and headlights


It is most likely the alternator that is bad,have it checked,or ,if you have a volt meter,hook up at the battery,start the vehicle,and turn the headlights on,and the ac on high blower.It should read 13.65 volts,to 14.25 volts,if it is lower than this,or higher than this,replace the alternator.

Hi:
The battery light is telling you that you are running off the battery,and you have a problem with your charging system. An easy way to check your alternator is to get a volt meter, and measure the voltage of your fully charged battery. with your expedition not running, it should read about 12.6 volts. When you start your expedition, it should read approx 14 volts if your alternator is working properly.
Of course, check all of your connections first, and most auto parts stores will check your alternator out for free, so they might have a chance to sell you one!

Radio shuts off when headlights are on


Likely bad ground. Also check battery voltage when headlights are on. Most stereos shuts off when battery level drops bellow certain value

Battery being drained on 2000 Expedition


you should remove your alternator and take it into an auto parts store and they can test it for you.
this alt had an internal regulator which can be replaced easy.
your auto parts store will be able to full feld your alt to bypass the regulator. this is how you test it to see if the regulator is bad.

you didnt say how many miles are on this truck .
most of these ford alt will last 120,000 or more
on the back side of the alt you will see the replaceable regulator.
