Re: 2000 ford taurus alternator issue
Have you checked the 175amp fuse in the battery fuse box? It is not where the other fuses are. It is where the power wire(big wire) off the alternator goes to on the battery fuse box. There is a little cover over the fuse; you pinch the tab and pull if up. The fuse is bolted in with 14mm bolts. Also, your battery could be shorted internally causing no charge condition, or the new alternator could be bad.
