Charging system The 2005 Montego that we have is not charging correctly. The battery is new, but the battery keeps going dead. We charged it up and started the car and when I disconnected the battery the car ran for a couple of minutes and then died. I am assuming that it is the alternator, but the system check says that the charging system is okay. I want to save some money, but I may have to take it to the shop. Any suggestions.

I had a charging system issue on my 99 Ford Expedition which completely drained the battery, the battery light came on while discharging which brought the problem to my attention before draining the system. We have replaced the alternator with a new NSA alternator 130A and it appears we haven't resolved the problem, the battery light is still on. Do we need to excite the system, if so what do we need to do.
