Check the stator wire plug. (one wire plug on alt.) If there is dirt or grease in the plug clean it out. If the clip to plastic plug is snapped off the, you'll have to cut the plug off and get something better cus chances are that the stator wire is not staying on good enough.
Also check the connections in the 3 wire plug. Make sure there is absolutely NO GAP between the female connections on any of the 3 wire connector. All of the wire connectors have to be connected really tight! And their made really cheep so they ware out. I had to steal plugs off another similar ford car to fix my altenator plugs.
Hope the helps! (look really close!)

If this car has the 2.5 24 dohc motor..Good Luck...Im not trying to be mean but there is a major task to remove this altenator from the car. The engineers at Ford thought of everything..except where do they put the altenator. Oh well we'll put it underneath the car, we wont have to fix it..ha ha.. Before you try to remove the Alt. Check the MAXI FUSE which is inline on the altenator wire to the battery. This fuse is located under the coil pak. Remove the 4 screws and lift the coil pack off. Look down the firewall about 8 " below the coils and there is a black box with red wires coming from opposite ends. One is from altenator, other is from battery. Inside the box is the fuse. Check continuity of the wires on each end the box. If there is continuity the fuse is ok and altenator is shot, if no continuity , the fuse is no good and you may not have to remove the altenator. ( but fuse blew for reason). If you need more info post again.

Altenator is not charging the battery


sir , the altenator has 3 wires at the connector correct ? a white/red , a green/white and a black , the white/red wire is involved with a 10 amp fuse to do with the charging meter / gauge , the fuse located behind left side of dash .. the green/white wire is is involved with 2 fuses , a 10 amp ECU fuse and a 25 amp Main fuse located at left rear of engine compartment main box , and the black wire is involved with a main 80 amp fuse at the main box also . both of these 2 wires end up at the positive side of the battery , please verify all these fuses are good . if they are indeed good , then open wiring would be next step verify continuity on black and the white/green wires . i would post a link to diagram but autozone repair info site is down at this time . if ya need more help , please ask .
