'06 Ranger XLT 4.0 Battery or Alt?

15

Asked by Sep 23, 2014 at 07:22 PM about the 2006 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr SuperCab 4WD Styleside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Not enough juice to start one day, so I went and bought a new battery. Before I
installed it, I went ahead and did a slow charge on the old battery and cleaned the
terminals.  Started right up and worked for about two weeks. So I took the battery
back.

Then dead again. So now I am thinking alternator/regulator and bought one.

However, I am getting no warning light. I have had this since new and only 40K on it,
so I would really suspect the battery.

What to do? Should I just go ahead and install the alternator? I doubt I can return it if
it's installed.

If your alternator was bad the truck would drive while driving it seems to me you have a weak battery

You need to go back and buy the new battery,if you ran a week with old one,it has a bad cell,and die,s over time.And alternator is good cause it toeted that bad battery for a week,change the battery will fix you.
