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.

Instead of continuing to purchase batteries and alternators, why don't you take your car to a qualified mechanic and have it properly diagnosed and repaired. It certainly would be cheaper.

I have a 92 Lincoln towncar I put new motor and nothing. The switch turns I hear the electrical click of power but only when on and off. The fuses are good. Please help im at a lose on what to do.

I am assuming you have an automatic transmission - maybe your "Neutral Safety Switch" is unplugged or defective.
Also make sure your "Fusible Links" are intact.
There is also a possibility of the "Starter Motor or Solenoid" having issues.
Let me know how that works for you

Have a 1997 twon car battery not so good hols a charge all lights brite turn ket you can hear starter engage but dont turn over also when turn key dash lights go out also when you close doors the door...

If you can jump start your Lincoln...the battery must be low...(when running have it tested for free at your local auto parts store...the alternator controls the full charging of your battery when the motor is running...If you can not successfully jump start your Lincoln it points to definitely a defective battery, and the starter could be bad also...if your battery is fully charged, and the starter will not turn the motor over the battery connections or the starter is bad...Not a big swithch out...Hope this helps.

Definitely sounds like a starter. When a bad starter is cold, it will start the car. After riding around for a while or after several starts in a row, the starter heats up and won't start without a boost. Since you've ruled out the battery and alternator, I'm positive a new starter will solve your problem. Good Luck!
