Please fill out the following to ask a question. MAKE: Lincoln MODEL Continental YEAR: 2002 MILES: 275000 ENGINE: 4-8 DESCRIBE ISSUE....Replaced alternator on Lincoln. Have proven good battery, grounds were check out and are good, connections are good and cleaned. Everything check good except charging and amp rate under load. Under starting load with no ac etc. on, It charges 1375 volts which is low I know But more than that, the amp is only 10 amps at tops. Do I have to reprogram the pcm to recognize the new alternator to get it to charge with more amperage. By the way the alternator light never shows that it is not charging, but light is good and fuses are all good concerning the alternator.
