I have a '96 2.4L. For the last week the battery light has been coming on at higher RPMs so I decided to investigate.
While the truck was running I unplugged the battery and it stayed running. So then I brought the rpms up until the battery light would come on and at the same time both head lights blew out and just about every fuse blew. I replaced all that a saw under the hood and under the dash but it just cranks and cranks. Also the check engine light doesn't show up at all and I don't here the fuel pump.
