1998 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 77,000 miles
My battery light started flickering on, and stays on during idle now, and the alternator meter is reading low for the first time ever.
The truck runs fine, and I have a new battery in it.
A friend has the same truck and his stooped dead last month. As it turned out, a wire was bad (broke?) To the alternator. I think they put in a new alternator anyway, $250 w/ tow. I wiggled the wires to the alternator, and the dash meter went back up, but went back to low the next time I stated it.
Is there a known problem w/ these alternators/wires?
Does my problem sound like a bad alternator or wire/connector?
