2000 Lincoln Continental Q&A

2000 Lincoln Continental Question: Power to alternator

Problem just started and "check charging systems" keeps popping up in the instrument panel. I have replaced the alternator and it still says it. My battery does not keep a charge. -
Answer 1
Have the alterator checked by the place you bought it from, and have them run a test on the battery as well. You might have recieved a faulty alternator and/or your battery is failing. -
Answer 2
What Tyreguy said, plus: Check the wiring connector at the alternator. Look at it carefully to make sure it is not damaged or melted. -
Comment 1
checked evevrything and it appears to be okay any other suggestions... -
Comment 2
Voltage above 14.0; amperage at 70+ -- all at 2000 RPM when performing a test. Wire connector clean and not burnt, melted or compromised. That's it. Nothing else to that circuit. -
