Alternator is probably going. Have it tested and replace it with the 130 amp alternator for a 96 Cobra. It fits fine. All you have to do is free up a few inches of wire by undoing the wire loom and pulling them out a little. The crappy one they use for the Mark VIII is a Mitsubishi putting out 120 amps. It was never designed to be re-built properly. Avoid the hassle and buy one from Ford. Do not waste money at a parts shop buying no-name alternators...warranty or not...if you have to change it every 2 years and get stranded somewhere, it's no deal.

Also, check your battery. It may be running low and should be fully charged before connecting it to a new alternator. Buy a new battery at the same time as the alternator if you think yours is weak. Batteries should put out about 12.3 - 12.5 when the cars not running and about 13.4 - 14 running.

(95 Mark VIII Owner) To help confirm; I have gone through several Parts Store alternators. In the process I have ALWAYS had charging problems. Even with new alternators and new batteries. Suck it up and buy the Ford OEM model. It WILL save you a multitude of headaches. And yes, I too have had to change it out every couple of years. And have been left stranded. Not only by the alternator, but also the Parts Store with the "Lifetime" warranty.

Is is a sensor issue if the service light and traction control lights are on?

These are most likely related - when the vehicle detects certain emissions faults it will turn off the vehicle's traction control - not a safety issue. The service light is on due to an emissions control fault - need to have vehicle scanned to find the source of the error.

The Anti-Lock Brake System and Traction Control System work together. The module detects a problem with the system. You need to have the system scanned and checked for codes to determine what's going on. Your friendly local auto parts store should provide that service for zip if you buy the parts to fix it from them. Once the correct repairs are completed the lights will clear themselves. As long as the lights are on the systems will not function should you need them.
