Could be battery or alt. remember the lights dont take near as much power as the starter does.


may be the fuse under the hoodif it's an older towncar.

It is definitely the alternator, that happened to me in Baltimore and the guy wouldn't put in a rebuild so it cost me $400.00 for the darn thing!
