1998 Mercury Mystique mileage: 106,000. My Charging System light is on. Not fully lit, but dim and flashing. My Battery was completely dead, so I bought a new one. The light is still on. When I start the car and pull off the positive and negative poles to test the alternator the car instantly shuts off. The problem is I can't find the alternator to replace it. My Question is the alternator gone bad or what is making that light come on.
