MY 2001 FORD F150 WILL NOT START AFTER REPLACING THE ALTINATOR.

When I had my altinator tested it was bad so I drove it home changed the altinator but when I turned the key to start it nothing happened. The headlights do not even go dim. What do I need to do next?

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

RETURN WITH ANY OBSERVATIONS YOU FIND WHILE TRYING MY SUGGESTIONS

MAKE SURE MR. BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED (AND IS GOOD), WHILE YOU DO YOUR CHECKING AND FIXING

WE WILL TRUDGE ON, WITH OTHER TESTING OR POSSIBILITIES OR JUST RETURN WITH A GRIN, STATING IT WAS SOMETHING EZ!

Always start with a known good battery after replacing a alternator. A alternator is a system maintainer not a battery
charger. Alternator diodes will blow out if you attempt to charge a dead battery.
