Ok, My 2 yr old Motorcraft battery which was replaced by the dealer under warranty finally failed today. I purchased a new battery and installed it today and I hope it solves my problem but I still have a battery drain of 110ma which is about double the draw that most new cars may have. I will keep this thread updated as time moves forward

You should be fine with only 110ma draw.

Did you find out how to fix this? I am having the same problems on a 1995, i've narrowed it down to the green wire off the top of the altenator, but dont know where it leads too???

Hey guys. I got 2006 Mustang V6. My "CHECK CHARGING SYSTEM" warning keep coming on. Changed the battery, alternator and checked alternator fuse and wires and it's all fine. Does anyone knows what the problem could be?

Only thing left are the battery cables and terminals. It's also possible the replacement alternator is bad or the wrong model.

I have a 2006 mustang V6 containing electrical issues at the kick panel. They claimed that they did a did a diagnostic 169.00. Lights went out on freeway. Stated I need a smart box. Claimed they put a new one in. 883.00 dollars. Lights went out on freeway again. The did another diagnostic and stated I needed a new battery 264.00 dollars Lights went out on freeway again, I gave up with Ford dealer as they stated I need a new wiring harness. Aprox 3 grand to replace. Vehicle has intermitten problem. Tonight cat would not start,turns over but doesnt kick in. Yanked out the smart box plug and shows green corrosion on male prongs, left car where its sat. Any great ideas how toclean off male prongs? Ford dealer never mentioned about a "pillar gasket" they just stated leak around the windshield. I need to find a place who does electrical repairs in Puyallup area

I have a 99 v6 3.8 L Mustang. The traction control light went out. It will still work, but sometimes the car acts different right at around 30-45 mph but once i get past that it's fine. I don't know if the switch is out, fuse is blown, or what? No check engine light has ever come on that I've noticed.
