My 1993 Ford Festiva isn’t getting power, it doesn’t turn over or anything. I have cleaned the ground wires and everything. The battery is good, starter is good. I have had multiple people tell me it’s the alternator, is that what it sounds like? I don’t want to spend money again if it’s not what it needs...
