My 1998 crown vic has a wierd power surge, lights go brighter, dimmer also motor seems to surge in and out also...battery and alt tested good...every elec sys seems to be affected.I took both bat cables...

It may be a bad battery, that is sinking power at some times and rejecting it at others. First check battery connections are firm tight and free from grease on the surfaces that join. If still a problem and battery is more than a year old, replace it with new.

Battery installed backwards at store

I would have this checked out to make sure they did not damage the computer, the check engine light may have been due to battery disconnect , the idle problem may be due to the same reason, it may need to relearn idle and other sensor inputs that were lost due to battery removal and fuse popping, this should take a day or two of driving it.
if you are still having a problem after that then have it checked.

Car alarm keeps going off when car is left standing battery went flat when lights were left on in car park had a jump start off aa since then ala rm light does not flash and it keeps going off for no...

You may need to have it checked...what may have happened is when the vehicle was jumped started, that a surge was sent through the system. This often happens to the new vehicles since they are sentive to any types of voltage surges. This surge can knock out electronics and cause some ugly things like this to plague you.

2000 olds sillouette, headlights on, no brake/turn signal light

i would chk. break light switch. should be under dash above break pedel arm. emergency flashers will be on its own fuse, turn signals should have own fuse. as far as interior lights surging that could be ground or alt. chk. battery cables make sure clean and tight. not good idea unhooking bat. cable when running, one spark or surge to computer could burn up computer. besides that realy won't tell you anything if a diod is bad in alt. it may not show up until you tax the system. its best to take it someware like autozone, or any major auto parts store and have it chk.
