Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental
My battery went dead in my 97 lincoln continental so I put a new battery in it, then that one went dead, so while it was running I took the hot post off and the car cut off. I then replaced the alternator with a refubished one. The battery went dead again,so I went and bought a brand new altnernator and swithched the battery again and its doin the same thing. What do you think it is?
As dumb as this may sound check the termials and if the u-shape is up then flip it over. I had the same thing happen to me on mine and now it works fine.

Sounds to me like you have a 12 volt drain on the electrical system when the car is off. Could be numerous things that might cause this , such as an interior light inadvertantly STAYING ON. or a glove box or trunk light staying on. Would you know ? You've already gone through quite an expense , so let's start with having the battery completely charged. Have alternator output tested, and electrical system for drain. First mission is to locate the circuit incurring the drain. Hope this helps..
