Asked by Guru9LXC9C Aug 25, 2021 at 09:22 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

both the battery and alternator are good. the charging indicator is in the middle
range on the dashboard.

1 Answer


It should not be in the middle… should be around 13volts which is not in the middle… that indicates it’s low voltage.. and if u replaced the battery and alternator and u still have the same problem… then I would say u shot from the hip and missed billy.
