Question about 2001 Ford Crown Victoria
I have check fuses, fusible links, battery, the alternator, and it is all good but no charging. Also the amp light in the instrument cluster is not working i have change the bulb already. please help. thank you roger
If the drive belt is correctly fitted and tensioned the alternator should be charging....have it checked and, if necessary, replaced
I am assuming that all the charging components, such as the regulator, are integrated in the unit.
Also, have the specific gravity of the cells in your battery checked for health/condition...might be the battery is not holding a charge very well, could be a dead cell.

Testimonial: "i have had all that checked and the alternator in the car is not putting out any more volts than the battery has. the bench test was 14.1"
If you know that it's not the alternator or battery... Then check the wries that runs to the alternator plug...

Check the Bat. terminal at back of alternator with engine running. If you have more than battery voltage (14.1 for example) at terminal, but not at battery itself, then you need to check wiring from battery terminal at alt. to pos. battery term for resistance. You could have a corroded connection at the positive battery terminal (smaller gauge wire), not the heavy gauge cable.
