Last week, by all appearances my alternator seemed bad, i.E, would not charge battery, and the vehicle would eventually lose all power. I replaced the alternator with a remanufactured from a discount auto store, and the vehicle ran for two days, and then the same thing happened. I took the alternator back had it tested, and it tested good. However, I am told that in some Lincoln's if you do not replace the alternator with the OEM's alternator, that it may not work. I need to know how true this is as I have replaced the battery, checked all grounds, and even did the dealer trick with the light bulb looking for excessive draw on the battery by pulling fuses. HELP!
have the same problem?
