How do you get the battery light to go off when you replace the alternator in 1999 ford windstar?
I have a 99 Windstar and when my mechanic replaced the alternator the battery light would not go out he took back about 2 alternators, stating that the alternator was not good, because the battery light stayed on. Finally, he had the last one he put in tested and it was fine, but the battery light still came on. He called a Ford mechanic and they said you have to use a ford alternator, because the computer can not recognize other brands of alternators. Once he did the light went out. He said occasionally it will recognize an off brand, but when it doesn't the battery light stays on and it can cause problems with the computer, and I believe he said the cyliniod could burn out. He just bought a re-built alternator from the ford dealer for about $199.00
Am mechanic and when you start your car the engine it vibrate and shakes with white smoke come out of exhaust pipe what should do as mechanic?
White exhaust usually means that there is water in the combustion chamber and there is a crack somewhere. Pull out the dipstick and see if the oil is a milky white. If it is then you have either a cracked head or a cracked block. Heads cam be replaced somewhat affordable by a reputable mechanic, cracked block the engine is toast needs to be replaced.

Why have i no heating in my fiesta 1993 model?
Typically, a heater failure in any car is the result of a bad thermostat. This is usually easily replaced (check a Chilton's manual for your model vehicle before you pay to take it to a mechanic). If the thermostat has been replaced and the problem persists, it could be a blocked heater core, which will require the assistance of a mechanic.
Asked in Alternators, Oldsmobile Alero, Cupcakes
Why would an alternator charge too much?
Alternators have two parts, one is the armature that generates electricity and the other is a voltage regulator. In most cars the typical output for an alternator is 13.2 to 14.4 volts. If their is more or less than this being produced, the voltage regulator may be faulty or the bushes may be worn. another issue that some alternators have is the failure of the bearings inside the alternator leading to noisy running or the bearings inside the freewheeling pulley fitted to more and more modern alternators. these can often be replaced independently.
