Customer Question
Ford 2007, F150. Battery...

Ford 2007, F150. Battery wont stay charged but the battery and the alternator have tested good. What else could it be?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Its my son in law. He took it to the local Advance Auto

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

He is trying to fix himself. Taken the alternator out and got it tested and had them charge then test the battery. Both tested good according to Advance.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

I believe if I understand correctly. The battery voltage drains overnight with the truck off and while running the voltage at the battery is not 12-15 volts?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
