Question about Lincoln Continental
You'll need to get a voltmeter hooked up to your battery terminals and monitor the voltage when engine is off, as well as when running, and with accessories running as well, like AC, or Heater and stereo etc. I suspect that the alternator is not charging properly. The big thing here, is it may be intermittent and hard to catch. Make sure all connections at battery and alternator are clean and tight. By checking voltage prior to starting car, you will be able to see what, if any difference the alternator makes when vehicle running, as well as under load when accessories are on. When running the voltage should increase showing that it's charging, but monitor it for a while, in case it doesn't act up immediately.Be sure to check belt tension, and condition of belt as well. If it's worn, or has poor tension, it can cause intermittent charging problems as well.
