#89 of 133 LED lights for 2002 LS
Sep 13, 2006 (7:52 am)
I am attempting to put LED stop/turn signal bulbs in my LS. I purchased some great LEDS from a company in AZ. They are as bright or brighter than the incandescent bulbs. My problem is this. My car is sending pulsed current to the LED's, which cause them to flicker rapidly (about 15-20 times per second). There is definitely a rapid increase /decrease in voltage. This happens when the motor is ON or OFF, so that rules out the alternator or charging system. The necessary resistors are in place however it happens with or without them.
I have tested the bulbs in a 2002 Escape and they function flawlessly.
I know there is a Lincoln Engineer that would laugh at this problem and tell me how (if possible) to fix. But I can't find that person. CAN ANYONE SHED SOME LIGHT (NO PUN INTENDED)ON MY PROBLEM? Thanks JRIEGER

Hey guys this is my first post I have just purchased a 2000 lincon ls has alot of miles on it (146,000) but anyways I was wondering if there are any websites that have lincon ls performance parts or atleast show setups I have looked everywere and have got nothing the only thing I have got was a website called www.lskoncepts.com and all they had was a couple of bodykits. what I was wanting to do is find a ls rolling chassis (no motor or trans or possibly blown motor or trans)and put a small block chevy in it or possibly even a small big block. Tell me how many of you have been at a stop light and had a lincon ls come up next you you with a carbed small block under the hood lol bring some old school to new school and mix a little class. well if anyone has any helpfull tips such as info about if the rear end will hold up or what kind of engine compartment tricks I will need to do just stuff like that. well thanks guys and hope to hear from some of ya soon.

lskconcepts is about it as far as specific LS stuff.
A ford 4.6L V8 will fit under the hood as will the 5.0 Cammer engine. The rear end is only good for 300 hp (factory V8 was 252 hp) so you'll need a whole new rear end (you might look at the Jag S-type R rear end - it was good for 400 hp) and should bolt right in (more or less).
The problem is that the PCM won't talk to the new engine or transmission and you can't run the car without the PCM. If you just want a track car then it's probably ok. If you want a daily driver it will be difficult.

You're talking about the keyfob, not the alarm. Only the dealer can program the keyfobs. Check around - another dealer might be cheaper.

I watched my salesman add a 3rd keyfob to my car when I purchased it. He had to do a sequence of things, but it worked. I couldn't tell you what the sequence was. In addition, you may have to have 1 or 2 working keyfobs to add one, I am not sure.
