While driving my dash light+headlights go dim, ABS light comes on and car dies. Just replaced battery and cleaned cables, still have same problem.
My model is a Ford Exploer sport 4x4 1998. My radio light also blinks constantly and the car lighter and rear window wiper stopped working also. When I start the car the battery gauge is half way even with a brand new battery and when I accelerate it drops to a 1/4 or less.
Sometime when I stop at a light the battery will go back up to have a charge until I accelerate again. Last night was the only time it actually died on me, the battery was leaking acid out of the posts. I replaced the battery and cleaned the cables but I am still having the same problem.
