1995 mercury mystique

I have a 1995 mercury mystique with a 4 cylinder motor. The alternator went bad and we put a new one in. Still not charging.
Can anybody tell me if there is a fusablelink in the line somewhere
that might be bad.

What brand of alternator did you use?

If you didn't buy it from a Motorcraft distributor or Ford dealer, your problem is here. Pitch the one you got and get a Ford dealer rebuilt or a Motorcraft branded rebuilt.

Have you checked all your fuses? did they check the alternator out at the store to see if it worked to start with? Maybe take it back and have it checked? Does the red light(charge) work on the dash when you turn the key to the on position? Some systems use this light as a resistor in the field circuit and if it burns out you will not charge.
