I have a bad battery in my 2002 lincoln LS. Will that cause it not to idle?

Does it die after you start it?
Your battery only gives the necessary "juice" to turn the starter, and crank. Your alternator takes over once it is running.
It is not your battery.

I have a 1991 honda accord EX that i just replaced the alternator and battery on because of the battery light going on and power dying as i drive. once changing both alt and battery, the voltage went up...

Just because they are new doesnt mean they are good. Plus, you may have a different problem and replaced perfectly good parts already. If the voltage goes that low in a few minutes, you have problems. Time to have a shop check it over that works on Hondas.

Replaced alternator 23days ago, now battery light went on and car died, bought new battery today and the light is still on and not charging???? is the alternator bad? what should i check first??

if you have or can gain access to a voltmeter, while the car is running without jumper cables on it hook up the voltmeter to the batter posts and see what the alternator is charging at, a good working alt should charge from 13.5 to 15v, i have seen many new parts go bad fast or be bad from the start

Alternater trouble Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2003

I have had the exact problem. I've changed altenator 3 times also and it has the same leak, but I've changed altenator an batterys over 2 year span. It just happend to me today after not driving it for 5 months. It's been in storage while I was away. Drive it fine for 2 days but today the radio kept shutting off and finally the car died right in the middle of the road. Bought a new battery because I had a warranty on last battery, but bought it just to get it home and in the driveway. Did you ever find out what was wrong with it?

go to the back off the alt at the main post there should be a heavy red wire take a volt meter and see if you battery voltage. if you do not the fusable link wire at the starter there will be three of them one of them has failed . what that wire dose it feeds the battery voltage . if there is no voltage on that wire the alt will not work good luck kdc744
