We have a 1998 lincoln continental we replaced the alternator and battery and cables and the ends. After that it will pop the 30 amp fuse for the PCM CAM which causes the transmission to down shift to second and the A/C compressor to shut off. I have took it to several places and no one knows what is wrong.

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 .
battery light stay on because there is no output or below voltage out put from the alternator. Check that the battery terminals and posts are shiny clean and tight, if there is a charging circuit fuse (OK). Have the battery load tested . Remove the alternator and have it bench tested by an accredited auto electrician.
faulty alternator or battery, loose battery connections at battery end or starter end. Check battery for its ground connection, make sure all connections are clean and tight. Alternator is my first choice as the culprit.
First diconnect the battery, There is a automatic tensioner it should be a 16mm or 15mm move it in the direction that loosens the belt. with the belt off the alternator is on the top remove the four bolts then the connection. Install in the reverse order.
Ok If it keeps bloowing the fuse it means that its to much resistance in the system. I would reccomend you to take a look at you're blower motor. Even if it work properly it my be durty or to old so it requires more power to spin and then its over heating the wires and the fuse automatically blows up.
Please don't forget to rate me..thanks!
replace the battery cables, positive, negitive and the one between the starting solenoid. the cables can corrode after so much time. cut open the cable if you can see green stuff inside the casing, cables are bad. (be sure to dissconnect cables before cutting open)
disconnect negative battery cable.first turn off radio before moving battery cable so you wont lose radio code.if you got a automatic belt tensioner rotate it counterclockwise to remove drive belt from pulley.if you dont have automatic belt tensioner.loosen the alternator pivot bolt and remove the adjustment arm bolt from alternator then remove alternator belt.
