Question about Lincoln Navigator L
Make sure your interior lights are not staying on once all the doors are shut. My navigator has done this to me, I read on another posting that there may be corrosion on some wires under the driver seat, that cause the interior lights to stay on, meaning the door is still ajar (open) even though they are closed. What I do is shut all the doors hard, and wobble the truck, and sometimes this works. You could also put your hand on the interior light on the driver door, it will be hot if it stayed on, sometimes it will stay on when the vehicle is in motion.

Yes it can be the alternator.
Best way to check is to start the vehicle - and disconnect the battery (while running).
The vehicle runs off alternator power. The battery only starts it.
If the vehicle dies when you remove the battery - the alternator is at fault.

I really need more info on this problem to be able to help. For instance:
Where did you get the batteries? How long did it sit before they went "bad"?
Where they just dead? Dead batteries can be recharged.
If they were really Bad then something had to be causing the problem. Likely the Alternator is to blame if it is overcharging. Or even if not, if one of the diodes has gone bad you could be feeding AC into your Battery.
Or if the battery went dead after sitting for a while you may have a parasitic leak from somewhere. Pray it isn't that because those are very hard to find. That being said even the clock can run down the battery if it sits long enough.
Let me know more details including how the battery was determined to be bad and if it was bought at kmart or walmart.
