How come my 98 limited explorer won't charge after new battery and altinator was bought??? I'm heated....
It's my parents truck the starter went out a
few weeks ago, had it replaced then now all
of a sudden battery dead, got a new one
same thing went to a recking yard got an
altinator still have the same problem OMG!!!
Make sure the alt light is operational, if it is not it won't activate. See pic.
Alternators are not meant to charge a battery, only maintain it. You can actually damage an alternator's electronic components by trying to charge a low battery. Try charging the battery first to 12+ volts then check with multi-meter. Should be charging 14 or so volts.
