There should be a fusible link between the alternator and the battery. This link is part of the wire and there may be 2 of these. Check them to see if they are good. Also there should be 12 volts positive to the alternator and it should be hot all of the time.

The Crown Vic requires a 4G or 6G alternator.

Yes I saw you replaced them,get a multimeter and put it on the back stud it should read 13v and up just because it's new doesn't mean it's good.There is a wire that goes from the back of the alternator to the battery check it rodents tend to chew wires at times
