    Thank you! I'll be sure and let my brother know that as he does all the work on my car. We were wondering if it might be a problem with the alternator....even new doesn't mean it couldn't have problems.

    Thanks again!

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

No charge on battery


I would have the battery checked to see if it is not the problem first. If it isn't working right you either need to pour water into the battery cells or just go out and buy another one.

1983 lincoln continental mark vi bill blass, "charge system" "oil presure"


The charge light will blink if the key is on and the engine is not running. So if it goes off once the engine starts all is well.
I'm not understanding the oil pressure story. Were you leaving the key switch on for some time but with the engine off, then the oil pressure light came on ?

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..
