2005 Ford Escape 3.0L V6 intermittent charging problem. Alternator

Resolved Question:

2005 Ford Escape 3.0L V6 intermittent charging problem. Alternator believed to be good. Think it's a connector or wire harness problem related to a front end accident. A wiring diagram would help and any advice what to look for.

The alternator does not have a voltage regulator, it is PCM controlled. It is likely a bad connection, frayed or chafed wires.One looks clearer than the other diagram.

Where is the battery junction box? Is it the fuse box under the hood (drivers fender area)?


Also, where are fuselink A & B located?

Expert:  EMRSR replied 7 years ago.
Yes,The battery junction box is located in the engine compartment. The fusible links are in the harness between the BJB and the alternator, the links are not going to be the issue, they are like in line fuses, either they are blown or they work.
