Alternator Test the old fashion way
96 Ford Ranger 3.0 L six
OMG! While waiting for a part for emission system. I got the battery icon /light on. First dimly then on steady. My question can you still test the alternator the old fashion way? Leave it idle, remove the ground and see if it runs for a second or two? Still running good alt. No run bad alt. But with these new cars who knows. Although 96 aint new!
Mine does not run. I am thing bad alternator
