Need Help!

What is up droogies & droogets.

I am having a slight problem with my new focus, here is the problem; My friend and I replaced my alternator yesterday, and it worked fine. Then bout halfway home my battery light would kick on more than before we replaced it, and it would stay on for bout a couple sec. compared to coming on then going instantly going away. I also noticed this morning that my headlights and gauge cluster lights are flickering. I have double checked all connections, from the alternator to the battery, and they are tight. one thing that i discovered though, was that my battery power cable has some corrosion on it; could that be my problem? or can it be something else. I just can't figure it out . please HELP. Thank you all in advance for your possible solutions

clean an check your connections, these cars are picky about battery connections so make sure you have good connections first, if you happen to have a volt meter check the battery voltage when running to see what it is also.

You also might want to consider upgrading "the big three".

Great site for DIY modding. Some of it is a little dated, as in when it was created, but all very good points.
