'98 Lincoln Navigator, Battery Light
Q: I own a ‘98 Lincoln Navigator. I just had my alternator rebuilt and only after driving a few miles the light is back on, do I need to have my computer on my car reset? I have checked the battery and it is fine. Do I need to have my alternator rechecked?
A: NO you do not need to have the computer reset on your Lincoln. What you do need to do? Go back to the shop that rebuilt the alternator and have them check it out. If the battery light is on, it is likely that the rebuilt alternator is going to need rebuilding again.
