Having problems with your Ford Taurus ?
Taurus not charging.brand new alternator.battery light not on.a diagram would be helpful.
It's possible the main fuse is blown. Have the battery fully charged and start the engine. With a digital volt meter, check to see if you have 12 volts going to your alternator (the large wire on your alternator) If not, the main fuse is most likely blown. The main fuse links your battery positive cable to the alternator 12 volt supply cable. It is probably mounted on your fuse box but probably won't be listed in your fuse box layout. Unbolt the battery and alt wires going to the fuse and check for continuity, ohms should be 0 or close to it. So now that you spent about $300 on a new battery and alternator, you find out it was a $5.00 fuse!
