I had the same problem and they said alternator and battery were fine. I replaced the battery and the problem was still there. Replaced the alternator and it has worked fine for the past month and a half. If the shop took the alternator out and tested it then replace the battery but I am guessing that they just hooked the battery up to a tester and it said the alternator was charging the battery fine but it really is not. The problem is the alternator. Replacement is really easy about 5 bolts and the belt has to be taken off. Only problem is the alternator for a 98 lincoln town car is expensive! Let me know if you have any more questions or want more explanation on how to replace alternator.
