Having problems with your 1991 Lincoln Town Car ?

Charging system on a 1989 Lincoln Mark 7

\015 I have a new battery, replaced the voltage regulator and alternator. Still have a charging problem I KNOW it has to be in the connections somewhere. replaced the battery terminals with brass ones. Do you think I should start replacing the negative and positive wires that lead to my battery? The air ride system is out so the ride is rough right now, I'm thinking something has come loose. Any suggestions on how to diagnose the problem without replacing everything?. I do have a voltmeter not honestly sure how to use it correctly.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

1995 Lincoln Continental - 4.6 li engine. Car was running fine. Then charging system error began and car eventually drained the battery and left me on the side of the road. I replaced the alternator AND a blow alternator/ generator fuse (10) under the hood. Following replacement , car started right up and ran - but was running off battery and not alternator. Put battery on charger overnight. Today, I go out to start the car - and it will not start at all.. with battery fully charged. Turns over

I just fix my ac in my 1986 Lincoln Town Car and charged it .i place the low pressure gauge to check my pull down and at temperature of around 84 degrees my low side give me a reading of 45psi is this good or what should the low side be at this temp?Should it be around 50 or better?

Although there's no one benchmark for all systems, a low side pressure of 40-45psi is good. Overcharging will give the same symptoms of undercharging, a lack of chilled air. Overcharging will also do damage to the compressor. A good guideline for ... 1986 Lincoln Town Car
