RUNNING ROUGH

Ford Ranger

Ford, Ranger, 2002, 61000, v6
It idles rough, and when I rev-up the engine, then press the brake, the Volt Meter drops. It then appears that the truck is going to quit running. It also idles rough when in gear and out. I have replaced the battery a week ago. After replacing the battery, the ABS light has been coming on and going off as well. Any Suggestions?

You are going to have to have your alternator checked, should put out around 14volts. Be sure your battery terminals are clean and making good contact. Also be sure your battery cables are in good shape, you might have a bad ground.
