I have had my Explorer from new for over 4 years and am forever having problems with the battery not having enough power to start the car if I have not used it for four days. Every time Ford have serviced this vehicle I mention this problem and they say that this is standard. I have been to other Motor Electrician who informed me that it should not be happening and that Ford should solve the problem under warranty. I still got the same answer from Ford at every turn. I am retired now and it is not unusual for me to go 4 days without using the car so am continually charging the battery. The batteries have been the best I can get. Can any help with either info to fix or verification that this is a standard problem with these models. The cost of a full electrical system is prohinive for me at this stage

I don't know bout the warantee, but I agree with the electrician, I have had cars and truck sit for many months and not loose that much power. Has the battery been replaced. And if it had is the battery that is in it now stong enough? Have the battery checked, and have the charging system checked If theyare ok then I would sy there is a drain in the electrical system somewhere.
