What reason do you think my Ford Focus is failing on the alternator?
Country: United StatesMake: FordModel: Focus ZX3Year: 2003Engine: 2.3 Automatic
I have tried putting 3 alternators on my car and they have all failed including my battery,and i also have tried taking it to get checked and they have said that there is something wrong with the computer on my car so i have to change it.
I have seen the small single wire break right at the connector with the insulation still keeping it connected. I would start with making sure the connector/wire is good. Give the connector a tug. If it breaks you found the issue. This wire issue will set a code and put the charging light on. If the circuit and alternator tests good it would be the PCM.
let me know what you find
Where is the wire located at?
it is a single wire connector towards the back of the alternator. wire is red
