Question about 2002 Mercury Cougar
Alternator not charging battery are there any electical problems i can look at before i replace the altenator
As long as you have had the charging system and belt checked and they are o-kay. You should be alright just make sure you disconnect the negative battery cable before starting. If the charging system wasn't checked have it checked first. Depending on how the battery goes dead you could have adraw on the battery, a bad battery, a bad belt, broken wire, bad fuse link just to mention a few. Be sure before you replace alternators are not cheap, not being sure could be an expensive mistake. Good luck.

After having the charging system checked if all is ok, check the fuseible link between the altenator and the battery. found nearest the alternator on the firewall side of the engine compartment. follow the battey cables to the altenator. less $ 5 bucks to repair.
