I may be jumping the gun, but we ran into a nightmare at the shop regarding a cougar of this approximate era, I need to do a little research to recall what happened and if it applies to yours. It ended up to be a manufacturer's defect; the car was held up at the dealer for 2 monthes until the "fix" was shipped. I wish I had more info, but don't at this time. Hi this is the reason, I had 4 alternators replaced before i found it. There is a 175amp fuse attached to a wire that leads to the starter from the alternator. It is located behind the engine on the passenger side, just slide your hand back there find the wire pull on it hard and it comes up where you can reach it. I replaced it with a 175amp fuse block from a car stereo shop for $10 and I haven't had a problem since.

This depends. Are you referring to the battery temp sensor? if so it is under the rear seat with the battery, small little plastic part that is no longer made. If that is the part, you will need to have your battery relocated to the trunk and the alternator rebuilt to run without the feed from that sensor.
