electrical short?


We are working on my son's 93 4.6 L Grand Marquis. The alternator burned out and killed the battery. We replaced the alternator, battery, battery post clamps and the voltage regulator plug.
With the car running, we are showing a charge at 12.16-12.18. When the headlamps are turned on we only get a charge showing of 11.95-11.97.
I don't know what else to diagnose to figure out this short. Could someone help with suggestions, please?
Thank you,
Mickey and Minnie Mechanic and computer geek son

Sounds like it's not charging and you are just reading the battery voltage.
