Just cause its a new alternator does mean it should work. I would check the charge when running cause it could just be a bad alternator.

Bolts broke of alternator causing it to fall and that made the serpintine belt jump off, after that was fix the car would not stop so I got a new battery it ran for a day that night the car died again and...


sounds like your alternater is not fixed. Your car ran off of battery power till you drained it. Complete alternater repair and charge battery. You can check if your alternater works by starting car and disconnect positive cable if it stays running your alternate is fixed. Shut car off and replace positive cable.

My battery light is staying on in my 92 lincoln towncar


Get out a volt meter, With the car not started check the battery you should be getting round 12volts.

Now turn the engine and check the terminals again you should be seeing about 13-14 volts. If its high it means the regulator on the Alternater has gone and it wont charge the battery because to much going to it and that would cause other eletrical issues, and if its low your looking round the same problem with the Alt.

Also check the serpenteine*sp is not to worn as it wouldnt be turning the pulleys as good and would cause issues as things can't work correctly.

Battery light comes on and stays on


Does it have a brand new alternator and battery? It definetly sounds like an alternator. Look for shorts and check the power cables connections and ground.
Thanks,
