.Ford Taurus Charging System
I have a 2005 Ford Taurus. The check charging system light keeps coming on but all electrical items work fine, lights, blower, etc. I took it to Advance Auto Parts and they checked it out with a high tech analyzer and said the charging system was fine. I read a blog that said the Taurus is very picky about how much voltage is sent to the system and to make sure you have a genuine Ford Alternator, so I changed that. Then someone suggested changing the battery, so I changed out the battery. Another blog suggested checking all of the fuses, so I did that and changed them around from 40 amp to 40 amp 10 amp to 10 amp and so on. The light still comes on.
This driver had a similar issue.....http://www.fordtaurus.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=11067

I am having the same problem with my 2006 Taurus.
I am having the same problem with my 2008 Ford Taurus. The Check Charging System still comes on I was told at O'Reillys it was my battery. And the Check Charging System still appears.
I have a 2006 . Check charging system light goes on and off at random. Changed alternative and starter and battery is also good. Very frustrating!
Ford builds crap and charges a premium to fix crap.The systems are overly complicated and needs a much simplier design
My altanator is working, new battery, new battery post, wire connections are good and yet the charging system warning still comes on.What a piece of crap!The Russians build simpler , better cars!
