Why would the battery warning sensor turn on when your 99 Cougar is under 2500 RPM?

I may be jumping the gun, but we ran into a nightmare at the shop regarding a cougar of this approximate era, I need to do a little research to recall what happened and if it applies to yours. It ended up to be a manufacturer's defect; the car was held up at the dealer for 2 monthes until the "fix" was shipped. I wish I had more info, but don't at this time. Hi this is the reason, I had 4 alternators replaced before i found it. There is a 175amp fuse attached to a wire that leads to the starter from the alternator. It is located behind the engine on the passenger side, just slide your hand back there find the wire pull on it hard and it comes up where you can reach it. I replaced it with a 175amp fuse block from a car stereo shop for $10 and I haven't had a problem since.

The Battery Temperature sensor is located under the battery attached to the battery tray. Remove the battery and you will see it on the tray. You can then remove it from the top and then unplug it.

Not 100% sure, but I've never heard of any such device on any vehicle. Are you asking the right question? There isn't one! If a Dodge has a battery temp sensor it is located in the battery box under the battery.

Usually it is under the battery tray. In most vehicles anyway. Hope this helps.

This depends. Are you referring to the battery temp sensor? if so it is under the rear seat with the battery, small little plastic part that is no longer made. If that is the part, you will need to have your battery relocated to the trunk and the alternator rebuilt to run without the feed from that sensor.

The alternator is either over or under charging.

The sensor is the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor, located under the EGR, on the side of the engine between the engine and the battery. Brass sensors can be bought at the dealer.

The temperature sensor provides feedback to the charger to allow the charger to determine when the battery is fully charged. The battery under charge develops internal heat as it approaches full charge. The temperature sensor measures the heat (temperature) and reports it back to the charger to end the charging cycle.

USB devices take power from the device they are plugged into to operate. The message is a warning warning suggesting you unplug the USB devices to conserve the power of the tablet's battery.

If you take out the battery tray and turn it over, you will find the Battery Temperature Sensor. Just found out this was the reason my check engine light stayed on. One of the wires was exposed and discharging to the frame of the jeep.

About $60.00 for the switch. Kind of hard to get to under the car. Need a tool to align center nut in neutral though. For 94 Cougar tool number is 307-351 (T97L-70010-A).

The exterior temperature sensor on a Buick Regal can be replaced by first unplugging the battery, then reaching up under the dash below the radio and unplugging the old one. Then, trace the path of the wire to the front driver's side and unscrew the mounts for the old sensor. Replace with the new sensor and run the wires through the old path to the plug in under the dash. Re-connect the battery.
