battery dyng on f150

Asked by Jan 26, 2017 at 04:20 PM about the 2010 Ford F-150 Platinum SuperCrew

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have two ford f150's  one 2002 and one 2010. battery dying overnight . If I
hook jumper cables to it without starting good truck, it will crank. Alternator
putting out 14.Volts. when running. Thought it was bad connection, so I
cleaned the cable's. No good. If you get it cranked , you might drive 1 mile
or mile's. and not start up after you shut it off. Or might crank. Never know.
Heard there is a sensor in the steering column. but never heard back, is
that true. Any help would be appreciated.
