my ford 350 1996 van dash charging gauge stays on negative

Asked by Jun 08, 2017 at 06:51 PM about the 1996 Ford E-350 XL Econoline Cargo Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Sounds like the alternator is not working. take it off and have it tested. If you have a digital volt meter, set it to DCV. Voltage at the battery should be no less than 13.8 DCV to 14.7 V. with the engine running. You could go to an auto parts store also to have it tested on the vehicle.
