No battery light not charging

Asked by Aug 13, 2017 at 11:05 PM about the 2001 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a headache my taurus wont charge I
replaced the generator fuse under the hood #26
the mega fuse and checked all 30 amp fuses for
shits. I can't find out what's going on, the check
engine light wont illuminate in on position or while
it's losing the charge until it's dead. I have checked
the wires they all seem to be ok. Am I missing a
ground or something? Please help gurus!!!

a multi tester would help , the batt. should have 12.5 volts at rest , and 14 + when it's running and the alt. is charging, , scan for codes , replace the bulb light on the C.E.L. and any others while you're there , may be the batt. light bulb is no good

He's right. First step check wiring, battery, then alternator!
