Common Problems in Ford Electrical and Charging Systems

While there are wires, sensors and other technology involved, let’s take a look at the common culprits.

Bad Starter

Your car’s starter takes electricity from the battery and uses it to turn the engine over. If something is wrong with the starter in your Ford vehicle, you’ll hear a clicking sound when turning the key and your car won’t start. A bad starter means you won’t be able to turn over the engine, even with a jump start.

Dead Battery

Your battery provides the charge needed to start the engine. When driving, a car’s alternator recharges it so the battery is ready for the next start. You’ll get about 5 years of battery life before it starts losing the ability to hold a charge. If it’s been about that long, you may hear a whining noise or nothing at all. Your lights, radio and other electrical components will either be dim or dead. A jump start may get your Ford going again, but it likely won’t start back up after being turned off again.

Alternator Failure

Often, problems with a car charging system are traced back to the alternator. Without it, the battery isn’t recharged and cannot provide the electricity needed for the starter to do its job. A check engine light is one indicator, along with noticeably dim lights or flickers, electrical issues, squealing or growling noises, engine stalling, as well as being able to jump start your car but the engine quickly dying.
