1998 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 78k miles
Just installed a new (rebuilt) alternator, the in dash battery guage looks fine, right where it always has been since new. But the battery 'light' stays on all the time now.
I get 12.5v on my (new) battery, and 14.5v with my handheld volt meter after I start the truck. So everything looks good, except for that dash 'light'!
Even when my old alternator (regulator) was going bad, the battery 'light' would only flicker and sometimes stay on dimly. Now it's on BRIGHT all the time. What could be wrong?
have the same problem?
