Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my low battery light came on about a month ago and a couple weeks later it
died. i had a ford mechanic look at it and he said a loose wire from the engine
to the computer was drawing power but the light came back on and 2 weeks
later it died. i had both batteries replaced and 2 weeks later it died again. is
this a simple fix or do i have major problems?

Sounds like an alternator problem. Have it tested and the wiring going to the alternator checked as well. Make sure all connections are clean and tight. HTH. -Jim
