If you have replaced both of these components and it still is a no go - just start looking for things like corroded wires or perhaps a blown fuse. Somthing to do with the alternator. For some reason the juce from the alternator is not getting back to the battery. If you stop at an auto parts store get a Haynes or Chilton manual (they have wiring diagrams in the back) just sit down in a quiet place and study the diagrams......Good Luck.........Jeff

AnswerMany autoparts will do electrical testing for either a minimal price or even free. That should take the guesswork out of the problem, and likely even save money: replacing perfectly good parts doesn't help (done that more times than I care to admit!)

1994 Mercury Grand Marquis. The battery light stays on and causes a drain It goes out when the ignition is off Any ideas Difficult to start and stalls. Changed alternator and battery checks ok. Help?

The battery light isn't an indicator that the battery is always bad. What the light should really be is a picture of an alternator, but most people wouldn't recognize that. Have the alternator checked off the vehicle to make sure it is good, then have it checked on the vehicle, (many places like Auto Zone do this for free). If it's not charging on the vehicle, you could have an alternator fuse bad or your car might even have an inline fuse between the alternator and battery. Many Ford products have a large fusible link between the alternator and battery, and if it's bad, there is no power going to the battery from the alternator. Good Luck!!!!

Why would my truck not recharge the battery i have a f150 1985 i want to think its the alternator i stalled it twice and it drained the battery... i replaced the battery on 5 days ago too?

I had this problem on a 1979 Mercury Grand Marquis- it turned out to be a short in the wire going from the alternator to the battery. It was intermittent, so it was very hard to run down. If the alternator checks good, the short/broken wire could easily be the culprit.Rocky_B - See my entry here for more things you might want to check: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_could_be_wrong_if_the_battery_light_stays_on_and_the_battery_still_runs_down_on_a_1996_windstar_after_installing_a_new_battery_and_alternator
