I was listening to the radio with the motor not running for about 20 minutes. I had to use my 2005 F-150 Supercrew, by then it was dark. After driving for a while the battery sign came on and the warning "check charging system" I was able to get back home. I thought the battery was low but I had replaced not long time ago. I charged the battery with my home charger, but the warning continued. I disconnected the battery with the the engine
running and it turned off. I think the alternator
gave up, but my question is, is there a fuse that might be blown? It happened to me on my previous 99 F-150 truck, I took it to the dealer and they said it was a fuse. I would like to know which fuse that might be, is not mentioned on the manual
JA: There are so many things that can cause battery issues. Some simple, some complicated. The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Will the car start?
Customer: Yes, it starts
JA: Glad to hear that. How old is the battery?
Customer: It has 5 year warranty from the dealer. about 2 years old. Car is running only on battery
JA: Anything else I can tell the Ford Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: I would like to know if there is a fuse blown, before replacing the alternator
