2006 Ford five hundred, replaced alternator, batt. Light and " check charging sys." light still on, any suggestions?
My 2006 Ford five hundred limited wouldn't
start, mechanic replaced the alternator. The
car starts just fine now, so far no problems
with starting, but my battery light is on and I
get the message " check charging system" ,
Battery is less than 1 year old . any
suggestions? I appreciate any help. Thanks,
well it almost sounds like grounding, so check out those wires on the battery and get back to me if the problem continues -RTBBilly
RTBBilly, do you mean check out the ground wire, negative, on the battery and make sure it's not frayed, or corroded? Thanks, John
oh my apologizes John, i was a little unclear, yes the wires is what i was trying to say. but i mean the two of them both positive and negative. and yeah i meant look for corrosion. also the small black ground wire next to the "starter relay". again sorry for the confusion. i'm still here to help -RTBBilly
