Ok, I do have a proffessionnal Fluke multimeter to achive these tests.
I never use test light. but is there away to replace the voltage regulator
without removing the alternator?
Your # XXXXX stept... Ground to the charge light ?
Actually it come on intermitenly so the ground should do is work
The Battery is two years old original ford repalcement, i use to clean poles every year before winter
Back to the question....
The voltage regulator, is it stick to the alternator or remote?
Could it be ( the voltage regulator ) replace whitout removing the alternator ?
If screw to the alternator body, down under,and unacessable ?
For sure i will check for the positive cable to alternator,since you pin pointed.
And even check the resistance of the cable itself.Wich I doubt to be the problem...
So Maybe it is a shitty engeneering concept you dont want to go along
Today or tomorrow (Sunday ) i will perform the electrecal check, thanks for the check
steps for the trouble shooting. It will be usefull to establish if the damed alternator
is faulty before calling ford dealer for an expensive replacement.
Because that thing is is a pain in the ass to replace as you know.
Ford realy piss me off with this one, cause it is a hard DIY job
