problem with the alternator? ford escort 96
i have a escort 96 automatic 5 door. about some days a have the batery lighter on. i change the batery but after 2 day is the same. i put the multimeter to the batery and i have 14.5 when the engine is on. the batery is very hot and have some smell.
sorry for my english
really, your english is as good or better than a lot of folks on here... :laughing: take it to a parts store that does free battery and charging system checking. when you got 14.5 at the battery, was the battery light on?
when i have 14.5 V the light is on
i do checked and the first batery is was bad (after the light is on). The second batery it was new one. For two days everyrhing it was ok. My ford is a escort lx with 4 door, automatic, engine 1.9.
you may have a wiring problem, then, b/c 14.5V should be enough to turn that light off.... check your fuses...?
