Battery light

Asked by Jul 10, 2015 at 04:50 PM about the 2006 Ford Mustang V6 Base Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Ford Mustang V6 Convertible. My furthest left turn signal doesn't work, and
lately my check charging systems light(battery light) is flashing on. If i drive the car to
long, it'll completely die on me during the middle of driving. I'm guessing its the Smart
Junction box because I've recently had water leak into the car from the passenger side.
Any suggestions?

When the battery light comes on it means there is something wrong with the charging system most of the time it's the alternator.

As far as the signal light maybe a bad bulb or light socket or bad wiring connection to socket.

If water was getting into junction box may have blown your alternator fuse.

If you rev it up and it goes out then comes back on when you let it idle I would say more then likely it's the alternator fuse.
