Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Ford F150 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 191000 miles
i put in a new starter about 2 weeks ago it seemed that everything was working fine. When I turned it on a couple days ago and touch the accelerator the battery guage went to max and the battery light came on. After driving it that way for about an hour I turned it off and waited about an hour then turned it back on and everything seemed normal drove about 10 miles and turned it off again about 6 hours later went to turn it on and the battery was dead. Jumped the truck and drove it off and on for the remainder of the day with no problems parked it for the night went to start it in the morning and the battery was dead again. Pulled the battery put it on the trickle charger overnight put it back in the truck and started the truck with no problem but the battery is saying by the guage that it is over charged again? What could be the problem? It seems like the energy is being pulled from something while the truck is turned off.
