    Help! The battery light on my 94 ranger came on 2 days ago and last night it just turned off while I was driving. I couldn't even get the hazards to turn on. It has no power at all.I've heard it could be the cables corroding on the inside. There is no outer corrosion. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!

    Sounds like your alternator went out and you've drained your battery. Take your battery & alternator down to your favorite parts store to have them checked out.

    thank you!

    That makes a lot of sense. Im taking the battery and alternator down to Autozone asap. Im sure I'll be fine but I havent been able to nail down exact instructions on removing the alternator. Any tips or pertinent information would be great! Thanks for responding so quick!

    1. disconnect battery.
    2. remove plug-in harness & batt cable from back of alt
    3. remove serpentine belt
    4. remove the 3 bolts holding alt to the bracket

    reverse steps for install.
