ALTERNATOR

1993 Ford Aerostar

Electrical problem
1993 Ford Aerostar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I just bought this van used. It was in the shop the same day I brought it home, brake problems. I had it running one day. The next day I went to start and the engine would not crank over. I just spent $700. On it in the shop the first time anyone have any idea how much an alternator would cost. The person I bought it from said they just put in a new battery and alternator. But the vehicle will not turn over and the voltage meter states it is low. Any ideas?

Aprox 150.00 for part and an hour to replace. Make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight. Also, check the ground to the engine block to make sure it is tight. Finally, once it is running, have the alt and battery checked at a parts store. Most will do it for free.

Let me know what you find.
