PERSISTENT ELECTRICAL/COMPUTER PRO

2001 Lincoln Continental

Electrical problem
2001 Lincoln Continental V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles

I have had persistent trouble with electrical issues. At first I had a bad alternator. The symptoms at the time were radio/tape turning off and on, abs indicator coming on, steering tightening up etc. After fixing was fine until all of a sudden one afternoon it would not start at all. After a jump, can ran and then parked it and it would not start. After about a week, tried it again and started and then kept running fine. Now, after hitting a pothole in the rain, same abs light coming on, radio turning off and on, steering assist message coming up now wont start, just get fast clicking. It ran when jumped but unsure how far I will get. Are there any ideas if this is truly an electrical problem or a computer problem?
