Ford Fiesta Charging Problem


Recommended Posts

Evening All,

wondered if anyone could give me some advice or point me in the right direction. 

I had a power steering leak which had leaked everywhere and into the alternator, I fixed the leak.

The battery warning light came on only when there is a load on i.e. Headlights. The light would come on for about 5mins disappear for 10 mins and then come back on.

i checked across battery terminals with a multimeter with engine off and it read 12.8V engine on the voltage did not change. Checked output voltage from alternator and it was about 11.5V.

i thought it could be the alternator, so I bought new alternator. I also fitted new battery and belt while I as there. 

All was ok for around a day and then the problems began to start again. I have checked the wires from the plug as far as I can I can't see any signs of a break or corrosion. 

Anyone have any ideas??

car is fiesta 2007 1.4 tdci
