'04 Explorer electrical issues

The wife has a 2004 Explorer w/ a 4.6. Yesterday, it dies while going down the road. Batt light and check charging system idiot light came on briefly and went off the day before. Anyways, it died in the afternoon, but we got it started and drove it home in the evening. Checked batt w/ my DMM and it read about 11V. Changed batt, left it running for about 30 mins, checked voltage periodically and voltage was never under 12V. Still, check charging system idiot light remains on. Anybody able to help?

Re: '04 Explorer electrical issues

Voltage with engine running and accessories on, should be about 13,5 volts. If not , then the alt is not charging adaquately.
