Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car
I put a new battery in my 1996 Town Car and it started right up. Drove around the block, parked in my driveway and as I was idling, the car went dead. I replaced the battery due to a similarr problem just before.
Jump starting the car does not work. I am thinking alternator. Am I on the right track? If so, how do I replace it?
When you were driving, after replacing the battery, if u felt the car loosing some horse power, until it dies, then YES its your alternator, it is not recharjing the battery with power, so the car keep on sucking the battery until it dies, try to check your alternator, or check your the plug "located on the alternator itself"

Must be something else besides the alternator. I've known cars with bad or un-plugged alternators to run up to 100 miles on a new battery before the battery is drained of power.
