Battery Light On – Windstar

Battery Light On – Windstar

Alternator rebuilders report a problem with ’98 Ford Windstars with battery light on. Do not automatically replace the alternator. First check for a corroded wire located below the brake vacuum booster. The wire can rub through against the heater hose. If you find a frayed or corroded wire, repair it first and then recheck the charging system.
