Question about 1997 Ford Crown Victoria
My 97 Crown Vic with police interceptor 4.6L has the voltage gauge bouncing up and down rapidly and does it constantly when car is running but it only does it once in a while when you turn the car off and crank it back up it wont do it i think something to do with the grounding what is your take on this

When the alternator goes bad, it can start doing that, and eventually will stop working. If the ground was not tight the starter wouldn't work

Have you checked the fuel filter. Fuel pump will pressure up, but fuel filter could be clogged and not work without the pressure of the fuel pump.

In the 1995 and later Crown Victoria's, there is a fuse in the fuseblock that controls the alternator's charging of the battery. If that fuse is blown, your car will drain the battery and cut off as you stated.
Check the fuse block under the hood and the one located on the left driver side above the hood pull.

i have ran into 2 issues in these vehicles---if it binds while sitting still also, check the steering shaft, i have found the u-joints in the shaft tighten up and binds dangerously tight---if they are free, sounds like you may have a steering box issue or restriction in a line---hope this was helpful!!

you can get a A/C Delete kit for a Ford 4.6 liter. the 4.6 v-8 accessory drive system is all the same. You may also be able to run a line of string around the pullys, take it to your local auto parts store and they can match it up. I recomend the kit,

That sounds like a Circuit breaker reseting. You might try buckling the seat belts whether there is a person there or not. Sometimes the warning systems for chimes and other sounds are muted or disabled. The Hazard warning lights on the column is independent of the Ignition. The Cop car Flashers were connected into the same lighting circuit. Check the Emergency Flasher unit.
Or You may have to remove 1 fuse at a time and then reinstall, until you find the circuit that silences the clicking. Then look at your Operators manual for the fuses' function and track the wires on that one circuit.
