    thanks for your advice, I found the problem it was #5 fuse under the dash for the instament panel idiot lights.

    Got the same problem. Alternator checked 3 times at 3 different places, as well as the new battery. Fuse #5 and Fuse #20 are good. Have battery voltage at alternator trip (connector at the alternator). Ground wire is good to ground on the connector also. No ground faults found. Alternator only shows battery voltage, no charging voltage.

You should have 12 volts at battery with engine off.
should have about 14 volts if charging.
what are you getting?

check fuse 20 in power distribution box on left side of engine compartment.

My 98 lincoln continental keeps cutting off I changed the alternator and battery but my dash keeps blinking and it says check my charging system Wat could it be


Preliminary checks to the charging system should be made regardless of the fault condition. These checks include:
  • Check fuses/fuse links to the generator to make sure that they are not burned or damaged. This condition, resulting in an open circuit or high resistance, can cause erratic or intermittent charging system concerns.
  • Check battery posts and cable terminals for clean and tight connections. Clean the posts and cables to verify good electrical contact.
  • Check for secure connections at generator output, voltage regulator and engine ground. Also check connection at the power distribution box and harness.
  • Check generator drive belt to verify proper tension and no slip between the generator pulley and drive belt. Refer to Section 03-05 .
  • Check battery for full charge as described

Battery light stays on 2001 lincoln continental


battery light stay on because there is no output or below voltage out put from the alternator. Check that the battery terminals and posts are shiny clean and tight, if there is a charging circuit fuse (OK). Have the battery load tested . Remove the alternator and have it bench tested by an accredited auto electrician.

Replace mega fuse


Buy a voltohm meter to test voltage at battery. Should be 13.8 to 14.2 volts. Sometimes need alternators need to be "enegized".

I just replaced my starter, alternator, and my battery in my 97 lincoln continental it was running fine until the other day now it won't attempt to turn over, I was able to shake it to get it started...


There should be a solenoid/regulator on the firewall that's connected to battery wires (possibly $13 part), and starter wire..a tap on that like you would a starter when it gets stuck; unless it's built in with your alternator or generator...the only other thing I can think of, is that you have a loose connection, or a bad item/rebuilt item? Starter and alternator new? A place like Sears Auto or a mechanic who has a computer to check charging system could give a better idea...good luck..

I have changed 5 alternator in one day which where no good...I checked my 175 mega fuse it is ok i check the 30 amp fuse which had a 10amp fuse changed it to a 30 amp fuse but made it worse.. also check...


Five bad alternators in a row borders on the incredulous. 2, 3 maybe, but 5 is a Guinness world record! I have to ask the 30 amp fuse made what worse? Is it not charging? Have you tested the battery? Maybe it has a dead cell, won't take a charge. Recheck battery connections and grounds. Test the battery or try a different good battery. What testing tools are you using?

I CHANGED MY ALTERNATOR ON A 97 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL NOW MY REAR AIR STRUTS SIT LOW


One has nothing to do with the other...If they both seem to happen due to the other, it is purely coincidental. Sorry. Wait...If your rear air pump, if it has air leveling system, if the fuse blew during the alternator replacement due to a short, check the fuse. Other than that, there is no relation.

Where is the voltage regulator located on a 2002 lincoln continental, car battery not holding a charge


Voltage regulators are electronic, internal on most units, now days, and not adjustable. Look for failed diodes. Easiest to pull the alternator and bench test it..
