Burned alternator belt/wire on my 1994 mercury grand Marquis

Asked by Oct 07, 2016 at 01:33 PM about the 1994 Mercury Grand Marquis 4 Dr LS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car went dead last nite as I was driving down
the street. Earlier I noticed both signal lights were
fading and not working properly. Got it home after
boosting several times. They say it is a burnt
alternator wire or belt. This morning went out to try
and start it. Automatic key lock didn't work opened
it manually and realized that the light switch didn't
automatically  cut off last night. Now everything is
dead.please help!

Your alternator could be bad. Belt could be off. Battery may or may not be good at this point. A good charge on the battery will tell that. (overnight). Measure voltage at battery, car running, should be over 14 volts, if not, bad alternator or belt.
