"tired of this overpriced piece of junk"
I feel the same,I WILL NEVER BUY A POS FORD/LINCOLN AGAIN!
My 01 has the same problem from water getting in dash from possible windshield,roof weatherstripping or roof rack, water flows in drivers pillar handle. damaged my GEM modular costing hundreds last year and having same problem now again. SOME ONE SHOULD GET A CLASSACTION SUIT AGAINST FORD WITH SO MANY ON HERE WITH SAME PROBLEM.
i don't exactly know where waters coming in but have seen drips on handle and under dash.

"Lincoln to get it fixed, but now they say it is not due to the design of the car and Lincoln has no responsibility. "
How can so many people on here have the same problems and not be their responsibility? I have an 2001 with 70,000 miles and nothing but probelms

I just started having the identical issue with my '03 truck. Blew fuse #3 which controls power seats, mirrors, and memory seat settings. Changed the fuse many times. I then took the mirror switch out and changed the fuse. This provided me power to me electric seats and my memory presets were restored. I thought I needed to replace the mirror switch, but after $100.00 that was not the problem. Please let me know if you solved your problem, and what you did o get it fixed.

My navigator still has the same problems. I took it to the dealer and the excuse they came up with was that the computer might have gotten wet, which is a bunch of BS..... So they said they would recommend me to get a new computer. So I just gave up and tried to trade it in for a Escalade but the Cadillac dealer wouldn't take my navigator so I'm stuck with it.

2003 was obviously the worst year of all since it was the year they updated the older style. Searching a bit, you'll find this model year was notorious for the windshield leak defect which caused numerous electrical headaches. Particularly since the GEM module was at the core of many random electrical mishaps. This module is "i believe" located behind the fuse panel. A few corroded inners and sudenly your elctrical system parties in the middle of the night while the truck is off.
There are many defects in the TSB's and being such an expensive purchase only adds to the headache.

MY 2006 navigator a/c quit 2 weeks ago. I checked all fuses listed in manual and all are good. Is there something I may have missed, like a relay box under the hood or something....
Besides that, best SUV i've ever owned.......
#51 of 157 2005 Navigator - Doors keep unlocking repeatedly for long durations of time
Apr 20, 2009 (11:05 am)
HELP!!!!!!! We have a 2005 Lincoln Navigator and have run up against an issue that the dealership is even having trouble with. Our Navigator will begin unlocking itself repeatedly and will not stop for long durations of time. (20 + minutes). This is happening frequently enough it has now broke one of our door locks. The dealership replaced a security module about 1.5 months ago the problem ceased until recently. It is sporatic and we haven't been able to pin down what is causing it or get it to keep doing it long enough for the dealership to determine what is causing it. The dealership has ran through everything and they can't figure it out. They are supposed to send Lincoln technical suppport down to look at it but none of the dealerships in this area have ran up against this. We tried using the remote to lock and unlock it, opening and closing doors, and starting and stopping the engine. It will start unlocking itself day or night to the point it has ran our battery down several times. The crux of this problem is it has happened every where except for repeating itself long enough at the dealership so they can figure it out. HAS any one came accross this?

Ugh! We're having the same problem. It's already run down our battery once. Did you ever get it fixed?
