| | Battery Light - Charging Problem?
Battery light came on my 2003 Ranger and radio quit. the battery was discharging. when I stopped I thought maybe a loose cable or something but found the ground side terminal cracking and couldn't be tightened down. I replaced the terminal with clamp type. I had no charge to turn engine over but got a jump and got the truck home, all the while with battery light on and signals working oddly, etc. I hooked up the trickle charger and got it where it showed a partial (about 1/4 way) charge with battery light still on. I thought the battery was shot so got a brand new one. Still have battery light on and low charging showing on the guage. Any ideas? Alternator? Bad cables? Fuse? Not sure which direction to go first. ???
