#99 of 108 dash trim removal
Nov 04, 2010 (4:04 am)
How do you remove the center stack dash trim?
I removed the console door, all screws (that I could see) in the storage bin, and a plastic plug, but the storage bin itself will not come out, and that seems to be the start of the process.

Apr 14, 2011 (8:43 am)
Most engine noise in the speakers is due to poor ground connections. You said the battery was recently replaced. The factory battery (located in the trunk) had a ground strap cable that connected the terminal negative to the body of the car right next to the spare tire. It is possible that the person who installed the new battery for some reason may have neglected to attach this cable to the battery's negative terminal. If the factory cables were changed or replaced and are no longer available you can get an aftermarket battery terminal at a local car stereo shop and run a ground wire from the terminal to the body in that location. You will see a bolt attached to the body in the area I described. Also it is possible that the bolt is just loose too. Check all your battery connections. Other than that I would take it to a good electrical automotive placed and have them check all the grounds associated with the stereo system. Also you my want to swap out the spark plugs with resistor plugs. Not sure if this is necessary as I am running on the factory plugs still.

Well it's a little late I see you posted this in November but I will post this for future LS Owners.....Remove the center console as follows. Remove the storage lid there are some screws and 3 or four allen or torx (star wrench) screws that need to be removed. Also remove the plastic cap inside the bin located on the front side of the interior of the storage bin area. Once that is done carefully insert a puddy knife or other slim tool to help pry up the compartment interior insert. Once the insert is removed you will see the nuts that attach the center console to the floor. That is for the rear of the console. The front of the console you need to remove (pry gently) the trim panel that surrounds the shifter starting from the front of the trim panel located near below the ashtry area. Once you remove that panel you will see the other screws/nuts that you will need to loosen to continue to remove the console.
#102 of 108 2001 amplifier location
Apr 27, 2011 (5:22 am)
I'm having problems when I play my CD. Sometimes the sound is great, other times the sound comes and goes accompanied with cracking sounds, and sometimes the fuse blows. There is never a problem with sound when playing the radio. So, I've checked the electrical connection to the CD. It is fine. Now I want to check the amplifier...but where is it?
#103 of 108 Radio changes channels by itself and displays "no portable"
Sep 10, 2011 (5:50 am)
My 00 Lincoln LS radio randomly changes channels, across AM, FM and CD...indiscriminately. It flashes the message "no portable" when doing so. I removed the factory portable phone (from the wiring harness) years ago and it worked for many years without this problem. I've swapped out the radio, with no luck. I've heard that the "no portable" message is tied to the factory phone and is supposed to come up when you try to press "mute" when the phone has been removed. But that doesn't happen for me. I have radio controls in my steering wheel, but I replaced the clock spring less than two years ago and again this happens when the steering wheel is still anyway. Can anyone help?

I am looking to upgrade the audio in my 03 LS. I have the system now with 12 speakers and the subs as the rear speakers. I found a head unit with nav for an 01 LS and I'm curious if that swap can be made. Any information would be helpful. Thank You

#106 of 108 in dash cd changer.

Hellow all, My in dash changer will not eject any of the 6 cd's currently in it. Keeps saying CD ERROR. Anyone have a Match for a 2002 LS. or any suggestions on how to fix Thank you.

Things to try, disconnect your battery for 30 mins this will cause the radio to recycle once you reconnect it. This worked for me on a couple of occasions. The surface of personal CD's are often too smooth for the rollers to eject. If the gate is open you should barely see the edge of the CD.Hit eject but push CD back in without scratching it sometimes this is enuff to kick it out, GL.
