Asked by schoolkid Sep 03, 2016 at 09:30 AM about the 1998 Ford Expedition 4 Dr Eddie Bauer 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1998 ford expedition has a problem whit
alternator being good already tested at auto zone
and it's good but I put a good charged battery on
the truck turn the truck on and just let it on until it
drains the battery cause it seems that it's just
working whit the battery!! And not the alternator!!
And if I take the negative cable off while the truck
is on the truck turns off as soon as I disconnect
that cable !!

CHECK THE MEGA FUSE FORM THE ALTERNATOR. TRACE THE POSITIVE CABLE FROM THE ALTERNATOR AND THERE IS USUALLY A MEGA FUSE IN BETWEEN
