help me 95 Taurus 3.0 v6 battery light on!

Post by kamelred408 » Mon Oct 26, 2015 11:18 pm

Just bought this car for $900 never had a ford or american car even.

I changed the oil n filter , new battery and new alternator.

Five days after this repair the battery light came on and off while driving and then the light stayed on and the car battery died. Took battery to the store re charged and tested good.

I tested every fuse in fuse box under steering wheel and in engine bay fuse box. All tested good.

I deep cleaned and sanded the battery cables . And the 3 grounds I could see before installing charged battery.

Can I back probe the alt pig tail and other connector on alt and test the wires / connectors . How can I fix this problem / test more stuff

Start the car up and touch the terminals on the battery with a volt meter. You should have over 14 volts while the car is running.
