'06 Ranger XLT 4.0 Battery or Alt?
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
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
If your alternator was bad the truck would drive while driving it seems to me you have a weak battery
If your alternator was bad the truck would die 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.
OK. Thanks. :) I'll go back and get the battery.
Got a 5 year Interstate 59 series for $90. So far so good.....
