Question about 1997 Ford Crown Victoria
I have replaced the battery and alternator but the battery still wont charge. The car runs fine until the battery drains. I think it is in the headlights.Can the dimmer switch cause this? I Have checked the 30 amp fuse in the front of the car and with the battery ground disconnected I am still getting current, does this meen anything? One more thing this is a retired police interceptor.
In the 1995 and later Crown Victoria's, there is a fuse in the fuseblock that controls the alternator's charging of the battery. If that fuse is blown, your car will drain the battery and cut off as you stated.
Check the fuse block under the hood and the one located on the left driver side above the hood pull.

Did you have the alt tested? check battery voltage with car running should have minimum of 13.5 volts when running if not wiring problem from alt to battery
