#501 of 827 2003 Lincoln Navigator Fuel Tank/Miles to Empty Reading on the Dash PROB
Jun 16, 2007 (9:32 pm)
I went to a shop today to get an amplifier set up on my 2003 lincoln navigator. I had about 125 miles in my fuel tank untill it was empty. While installing the ampifier the guy wanted to test the radio and the car wouldn't start for him twice and the car had to be boosted back up. After my amplifier was installed and when I was about to leave the shop it said that I had 345 miles in my fuel tank when I only had 125 before I entered the shop. What could be the problem? Why is the computer incorrectly reading the amount of gas left in my fuel tank? Will this problem fix itself? Is there a way that I can reset the fuel indicator(Miles to Empty)?
Thanks in advance and any help with this will be greatly appreciated
#502 of 827 Problem with Rear axle/differential seizing?
Jun 29, 2007 (10:25 pm)
I got a problem with my wife's Navigator tonight. it was accidentally put in A4WD today sometime. it's usually in 2H for normal driving. well she turned the switch from A4WD to 2H, and shortly after, we started hearing a sound from the rear axle. we pulled into a parking lot, and the tires screeched during the turn. i got out and told her to drive in a circle, and when she did immediately the tires screeched, and it feels similar to when the E-brakes are on, but they aren't. the wheels kind of half lock-up and skid. they aren't completely seized. the best thing i can think of is that when she turned the switch, it didn't properly disengage the rear differential? if someone can volunteer some time and help me figure this out, i'd be very grateful. we can't afford to take it to the dealership or another mechanic, and being a mechanic myself i'd prefer doing the work myself if possible. thanks in advance.

If you can wait until the 08s come out and you're not picky on colors or options you can probably save another $2K or so in additional rebates to clear out the 07s. But your choices will be limited.
Check the option packages. Personal preference.

My '04 has been close to perfect. 40,000 miles.
The only 2 known issues are that the power running boards have been problematic. (That's why I didnt get em.) And of course, the gas mileage sucks.
#506 of 827 00 NAV won't start after it rains
Jul 09, 2007 (12:09 am)
Hi everyone, I have a 2000 Navigator and for some reason, after it rains or when my keys get wet, I have trouble starting it. I know it sounds pretty strange about the keys getting wet but this has happened a couple of times before and all I had to do was hit the unlock button on the remote a few times and it would start right up. So the other day we had a bad rain and I was getting in the car and my keys fell on the ground and had gotten wet so it started fine right then, but when I had got up the next morning, went to get in and it did not start. Finally I got it to start but it would just cut back off. Has anyone ever had any problems like this before? I'm only worried this time because every other time the problem had corrected itself and I'm afraid it could be something serious this time. Please help!

#508 of 827 Unusual vibration and very limited braking ability
Jul 12, 2007 (1:55 pm)
I have 2 Navigators one a 2005 and one a 2006. They both are having the same issue on random occasions. During normal driving conditions, the brakes will begin to vibrate and make a strange noise. When this occurs, it is very difficult to stop the vehicle. Repeated attempts to turn of the advance trac will eventually succeed and then the issue and vibration disappears. The service tech has been unable to duplicate the issue and thinks I am insane. Given that I have two and they both have had the same issue with different drivers, I assume someone else out there has had the same issue. Help! I don't want a collision to be the only proof that this actually happens.

Sounds like the ABS is activating. Strange that it's happening on 2 different vehicles. Have you had a lot of wet weather lately? Might have bad ABS sensors.

It has happened in both wet and dry conditions. I told the tech that I was sure it had something to do with the ABS/advance trac. Unfortunately, I guess they don't have the ability to tell what is wrong if they can't create the condition directly.
