Question about 2000 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

2000 LS Lincoln-

Car acts like it is trying to prevent someone from stealing it. The motor will start and then stop and if I press Status and Reset then it says Rescue failure and it will start . It has a little over 100k miles on it and I was wondering if this is a computer set up to make me take it in for a service? Do you have any suggestions? I have not had any problems w it except the heater coming on when the ac is on. Ha. What is that problem?

The system can be tested by the dealer, most likely the sensor in the ignition lock cylinder has failed and the system does not recognize your key as the correct one, then it locks you out.

What's your problem?I have a 2000 Lincoln LS that runs great when driving but as soon as I stop and sit a minute it cuts off. I have noticed the car start stalling a little before it cuts off. Cou


Generally speaking, the common reasons for stalling are a faulty idle air control valve or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air is allowed into the intake thru the throttle body.
Those two issues would be checked first.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?
