1995 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 189000 miles
I recently had the pleasure of having my alternator self-destruct. The windings were noisy for 3-4 months and finally the alternator just burned out, taking the battery with it. I have replaced the battery and the alternator. The first alternator I replaced it with did not charge the battery. I took it back, thinking it was a bad alternator. The second replacement seems to be doing the same thing. Battery at full charge, start car, run meter across battery leads or from alternator to negative battery terminal, get 12.1 V and slowly the battery drains and meter readings get lower. Checked leads, they seems okay, but will check again.
have the same problem?
