I was driving my truck when the battery light popped on and it just cut off. I bought a new batter, still light is on and it won't start, it does turn over though. I was told it was my timing chain.

Asked by Feb 25, 2014 at 09:56 AM about the 2000 Mercury Mountaineer 4 Dr STD 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm really not convinced that is the problem.
I read that if it was timing chain it wouldn't
even turn over. Please help mom of 3 who
doesn't have access to busses ro get
around.

A battery light means there is an issue with the charging system, namely the alternator. Check the alternator and or starter and all wires to and from for cuts, breaks, corrosion.
