'06 F-150 Battery Light

Asked by Jimbo330 Jan 20, 2020 at 05:26 PM about the 2006 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 F-150. This weekend, I took the truck on a 2 hour drive and
drove it on and off all weekend and everything was fine. This morning, the
battery was dead. I jumped it off and everything seemed fine for about 5
minutes. As I drove down the road, the battery light came on. A couple
minutes later, the battery gauge was all the way to the left (like it was on
empty) and all electrical systems (radio and windows) shut off. The truck
then completely shut off. I put a new battery in it and everything worked like
normal for about 3 weeks and then the same thing happened again. It makes
me think that this could be an alternator issue but I wanted to get some other
people's input.
