So thats how we ended up here. Again, all input is, and should be welcomed, but when you grab somebodys post then contradict it when you dont know what your talking about, partly because you didnt pay attention to "the context" well you get what you get.

If you wish to continue this discution further, PM me. No need to muddy up the boards here.

But again, I apologise to you Sir, for any hurt feelings,

Mark
Mark,

I stand by my post that there is still a complete circuit with the battery removed as it is in parallel with the alt. I am not recommending removal of a battery while a vehicle is running as it provides some voltage stabilization functions and such and was just making that original statement for illustrative purposes to try to explain that a battery's charge is not really needed when a vehicle is underway. Your theory and experience may be different and that is just fine and I respect your opinion.

No need for any PMs. I certainly appreciate your feedback and insight but I just wish it would be presented in a nicer form. I think we are all just trying to point the OP in the right direction and have the best intentions. No ill will here. Have a nice night!

---Aaron

Did this truck turn into Christine and devour him?

Okay guys , sorry it took so long for an update. The truck is fixed and I pick it up this morning. It seems that some sort of critter decided to chew it's way through the wiring harness! I just want to thank everyone one for all the help. Also it's nice to know there are still people out there willing to take the time out to try to help people they don't even know .

Awesome! Glad to see it fixed.

I have to set mouse traps occasionally out here when the cats aren't doing their jobs. Mostly when the seasons change and the things are looking for new homes. Also, try not to leave any food or wrappers in your vehicles it attracts them too.

Welcome to the forum.
I am having the same issue. My alternator has a 3 wire plug . Do you know if this wire is from the ignition switch or threw the battery light. When my truck broke the other day it just ran out of power and died . For the past 2 years every light in truck had a pulse to that would get brighter and go away with added rpm but no other symptoms i just assumed the truck is old and the alternator was failing. I found the main wire out of the alternator where it connected at the other end at the starter solonid it was very corroeded and the was a smaller line that was made in to the same connector that had a burned fuse like that ford says is no longer availiable i by passed it temporary to see if the system would start charging . So i start the truck the batter light went out but its still not charging. Looking at your post you sound like you know what you are doing .
