Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, has the vehicle died on you yet?
I would charge the battery. It sounds like you have an issue with the alternator not keeping the vehicle electrical system charged.
A 5 month old alternator can still fail. The only accurate way to test an alternator is with a machine that Conan monitor diodes. If you have one bad diode the alternator will always test good without certain test equipment.
