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...?
