2003 lincoln town car started having problems with the door ajar staying on on the dash and interior lights staying on. Changed the door switches wasn't the problem. Because of this problem it started to drain the battery and then the alternator went bad. So i bought a new battery and alternator and the battery seems like its not getting charged and the interor lights keep flickering. Took it to the dealership and they're saying its the charge system. Can it be a bad ground.
BASICALLY, MY CAR WILL START WHEN IT WANTS TO. IT DOSENT REALLY RUN ROUGH OR ANYTHING, SOMETIMES, IT JUST WONT START. AND SOMETIMES IT WILL. HOW MUCH WILL SOMETHING LIKE THIS COST ME TO FIX, ACCORDING TO WHAT I HAVE READ IT IS THE GROUND WIRES
