You have to do some kind of testing

You can not simply install new parts,
in an effort to hope you solve an issue

Read the posts on this site alone

There must be 5 thousand people,
with no knowledge, throwing parts at
a problem

You need a repair shop to start on a
logical path to sucess

New battery and alternator car keeps dying

you maybe running a slow idle speed. When the alt kicks in to charge the battery- your engine may slow down to the point it dies from speed issues, or because the over all voltage available to the solid state ignition goes below 9volts. (it's minimum requirement to fire)

Where is the voltage regulator located on a 2002 lincoln continental, car battery not holding a charge

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..

Battery light comes on when accelerating, alternator is ok

In fact the Alternator is on it's way out, I had Taurus that was doing the same thing. When the RPM's were over 3000 the light would flicker. What happens is, the slip rings wear and get out of round and when the RPM's get too high the brushes start to bounce causing the light to flicker. Keep in mind the alternator is spinning about 3 times the speed of the engine. Pick up an alternator it's just a matter of time, mine went about 6 months like that, try to keep the RPM's low.

Why does my instrument cluster black out a lot? The digital cluster often goes black while driving. I have no idea of the mileage, gas, or anything else when it blacks out. Any ideas would be greatly...

Having the same problem with my 2001 Merc Cougar, When does it black out? While reving or randomly? Mine is while heavy accelerating. Could be over voltage at the charging system (alternator or regulator) or internal in the cluster. Get the alternator and batt tested first, ask for a load test, then try the cluster next.
