Hi, i'm having a problem with my 1999 lincoln town car, all the lights
(including headlights) flicker when the car is running. We changed the
alternator three times and yet we are still the same problem.
If this is constant condition, ie; does it in the driveway, idling; take
jumper cables, run the black clamp from alternator frame to Battery
Flicker stops = bad ground.
CAREFULLY take a nail and probe into the fat wire connector at the
alternator, so that it contacts the output terminal.. take the red clamps
to the nail to battery positive.
Flicker stops = bad wiring connection.
I'm not sure, your car may have the PCM (computer) regulated Alternator.
If so, that may be the problem
Yeh, I'm a Krusty old Geezer, putting up with my 'smartass' is the price
you pay..DEAL with it!
