Voltage regulators are electronic, internal on most units, now days, and not adjustable. Look for failed diodes. Easiest to pull the alternator and bench test it..

On older models it was a part on the alternator that could be replaced, now it is built internally into the alternator. I would get the car running and take it to a parts store and they will/can check the charging system

My 98 lincoln continental keeps cutting off I changed the alternator and battery but my dash keeps blinking and it says check my charging system Wat could it be


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 .
  • Check battery for full charge as described

Battery light stays on 2001 lincoln continental


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.

They probably blew a diode in the alternator and/or fried the voltage regulator. Take the alternator back and have it diagnosed outside the car.

Hi i have a 2002 lincoln continental with 31000 miles car doesn't start if i use a jump starter car starts and keep running for the time you deserve i test the battery and looks fine i test alternator and...


I have a 01 Lincoln Continental that wouldnt start. After paying $69 to the repair shop they told me that the alternator and belt are working like they should but the battery wont hold a charge. I took the battery to Sears (6 month old Diehard) and after a day and a half they said the battery is good. Now the car starts each time but the lights(inside and out) all flicker and when you press the gas they flicker more? After about 5 minutes the flickering stops. What could be the problem?

Battery trouble light stays on, alternator is charging at 14.6 volts with new batt


14.6 volts sounds a little bit high. I would have the alternator tested. Sounds like a possible voltage regulator problem.
