Battery gage read high

Maria Reyes

Asked by Mar 29, 2016 at 02:01 PM about the 1999 Ford Expedition 4 Dr Eddie Bauer SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replace my battery and alternator three
months ago, and now my battery gage stay
on high all the time when I'm driving.  I also
noted when I turn on my lights or roll up my
window my car accelerates.

Don't trust the gauge, get a voltmeter and see what it is actually putting out, the fact that the RPM's climb when a load is put on it makes me think it is not outputting what it should be and the computer is trying to compensate by raising the engine speed. HTH

Go to one of your local parts houses and ask them to run a load test on your charging system. They should be able to tell you EXACTLY what the problem is.
