alternator and battery with brand new one's. But
after all this my charging system light still comes

fuses as well.

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.


Check the wire from alternator to battery


Changed my alternator and belt and battery car will not charge my battery can somebody help me !!!!!!


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
