#44 of 95 2002 lincoln LS
Oct 17, 2007 (11:55 am)
I have a 2002 LS it has been a good car, however for about 3 months now I have to crank it awhile to start it once it starts it runs great and sometimes it starts right up. I run premium gas in it and I am fairly fluent in auto repair but im perplexed with this one. Also while running the air conditioning sometimes the passenger side will start blowing heat all by itsself. If anyone has any insight they could share it would be greatly appreciated.

I've had the same problem for a year! The shop never determined what the issue was, yet they always found a reason to get close to a thousand each time I visited. From June until yesterday, not once did I have an "event", last night, just as before, everything shut down in traffic, I had no lights, no radio, the car wouldn't take gas, yet kept running for several blocks until I could pull over. Top speed was almost five miles an hour. Surely this is dangerous, and surely someone at Lincoln "knows" and isn't telling! I have ten grandchildren and PRAY that this doesn't happen with them in the car! The dealer has replaced grounds, batteries,a mega fuse, and several oil on valve "issues" at 500 dollars a piece. Every time it rains hard I do have to replace my brake lights, I've often wondered if a good rain sets off something to cause this shut down , as we were very dry this summer, and the rains just started again.
#46 of 95 Lincoln LS Battery Problems

My 2006 Lincoln LS w only 8000 miles and 2 years from date of manufacture is now on its 3rd battery. When battery voltage dips, I get all kinds of crazy things happening -- headlights flash when starting engine, message center indicates tail lamps burned out (they're not), or parking brake needs service, or advancetrac not working, many others, all false signals. What is the root cause? Dealer has worked on the car 5 times and can find nothing wrong.

the alt is on bottom left of motor if standing in front of car. get car on lift to access from bottom. take front left wheel off it will give you room to work. very tight work area but no hoses need to be removed to get old one out. one bolt on top, one one bottom slide bolts out. unplug and remove cable and work alt out, it will come out just move hoses out of way replace with new, job royal pain toke me 5hrs in book its a 2 1/2 hour job

I would suspect a short. With the car off, check current on all circuits. If you find a circuit drawing current that should be off then that will narrow it down. But those can be tough to find. Better read up on the lemon laws.
#49 of 95 2000 LS Driving Light wired direct question
Mar 13, 2008 (6:50 pm)
First of all...hey everyone...
Has anyone ever wired the driving lights direct so they stay on with the high beams or come on with the ignition like daytime running lights?
Any other tricks and or upgrades?

My problem is the alarm will turn off and all 4 windows will roll down on their own.
this happens whether the alarm has been activated or not,and yes even with a new batterie this has happen.
Has anyone experienced this too, any remedies.
Computer was checked and no faults showed.
Love my Linc.

Could be a bad keyfob. The keyfob unlocks the doors, turns off the alarm and rolls down the windows using the unlock button. Take the battery out of the keyfobs and see if it still happens.

The windows and sun roof area all supposed to open up when you hold the button, I believe it is the unlock botton on the remote. It is a built in fueatre. Now not supposed to do this if you just press the button but hold it and volia they all roll down to let the heat out.
