1990 Ford Crown Vic Starting Problem

Ok I posted here once befrore and I was provided with a wonderful answer so Im trying my luck once again..

Well the jist of the matter is my car reverts to clicking no matter how much I try to self-diagnose and treat whatever is interrupting the normal function of the engine. In detail, I thought it was a serpentine belt problem as my previous one was jumping off the alignment and was WAY too tight on my compressor, so much so we had to cut it off. I bought and installed a new one and the motor turned over withsome ease, but I was still weary of its state so I drove it to a local corner store and the car's motor went out on me again.

After replacing the serpentine belt, the next morning, I bought and installed a new motor while the car was stalled at the store overnight. The car started but soon reverted to engine clicks from the solenoid and not starting. I had gotten my battery charged and it started but went back to clicks.

I had a friend recently give me a jump and the car worked GREAT the whole day but now it's not starting and its back to clicking. ANYONE know what's going on here ? I wish I had the money to let professionals check it but I dont so I have to do it on my own and I will. I take instructions well so does anyone know what it maybe ? Im not thinking its my starter because my starter did turnover when I got a jump from friend today..I dont know.

    I also didnt mean to type that I installed a new car motor after I put in the new serpentine belt. I meant to put that I installed a new Alternator.

You can take the car to any auto parts store in your area and have them check your battery and alternator sounds like one of the three that is going out on you battery alternator or starter. sometimes the contacts in the starter will get worn or burned to where a jump will start them as that is usually closer to 14 volts and the 12 volts just doesnt have enough kick to start it.
