Customer Question

My 1990 F150 has many problems. But today's is that the battery light has started illuminating. The truck starts just fine, but I am concerned that getting stranded may be on the horizon. Any thoughts as to why the BL would just start coming on and staying on? thanks,
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I have a relatively new battery, I keep a solar charger on the truck as i do not drive the vehicle regularly. It only has about 110,000 miles on the engine for a 26 year old vehicle. I use it sporadically for hauling items to the local landfill, and to a new home construction.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Ford Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $28 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
