Question about 1998 Lincoln Town Car
I replaced the alternator and the system is charging at 14 volts but, the low volts light stays on all the time. Is there a way to reset the light after alternator replacement?
Internal reg could be bad and overcharge at times but not under charge at the smae time

New altenator or junkyard one.if new return it, if junkyard just ignore light as its odds on they will not change it .the red light is caused by the difference in the voltage between input and output voltages .Quick test --start engine and run at 1500rpm disconnect battery and turn everything electrical on and if engine stops then change altenator if it stays running then altenator is OK
