Symptoms Of A BAD Alternator
The most common symptom of a BAD alternator are:
The charge light (also known as the battery light) will be shining nice and bright on your instrument cluster.
Whenever you turn on the headlights (night driving), they glow very dim.
The car won't crank, but when someone helps you to jump start it, your Ford or Mercury vehicle easily starts.
You have to constantly charge the battery or get jump starts after which the vehicle only runs for a few minutes and stalls.
