Question about Lincoln Continental
Keeps losing power after about about 3 hour of driving.Put another battery in and starts up and drives about 2-3 hours.Put a new altertor on and same thing happens.
Drive over to Autozone or Oreillys and have them check the charging system while it is running. You also need to check for the "draw" of power used by the car. They may not have the gauges for that portion of the test.
One item that is silent and draws a lot of power is the rear window defroster. I don't know offhand if it is a dedicated fuse or if there are several items on the same fuse. You could try pulling the fuse for the rear window defroster.
Your air suspension can draw lots of power if the air compressor keeps running.
If you are running down a fully charged battery and all the power of an alternator, something is either glowing, or a fusible link is blown and the charge is not getting to the battery.
