  • 1920 FORD FOCUS
I have a 2000 ford focus manual trans 2.0 DOHC 100,000 MILES, the problem first started the battery light came on when the car was at crusing speeds but when accellerating it would go off, I had the battery tested at autozone and they said the battery was bad so I reaplaced the battery and still had the same prblem then I had it tested again at autozone and they said the alternator was putting out too much power and over charging the battery so I changed the alternator and every thing was good bor about four months eccept the battery light stayed on all the time, two days ago the car was just dead I charged the battery but it still discharges I have the old alternator and took it to be tested and was told it was still good.

please help with this I hate this car

Thanks

Hello

Ok I have charged the battery and voltage on battery not connected to the car was 14.00 and connected to the car voltage was 13.18 on both terminals and off block, and the car still wont start,
I have the battery disconnected because it seems like something is draining it fast.
