Battery light stays on 2001 lincoln continental


battery light stay on because there is no output or below voltage out put from the alternator. Check that the battery terminals and posts are shiny clean and tight, if there is a charging circuit fuse (OK). Have the battery load tested . Remove the alternator and have it bench tested by an accredited auto electrician.

How do you activate the built in phone system on a 1995 lincoln town car?


Well, the Question Title says 1995 Lincoln Continental and the actual question says 1995 Licoln Town Car.....BIG difference - are you sure you know what kind of car we are talking about here?

Not that this really matters anyway, because neither of those cars were factory equipped with a "phone system". If there is some kind of phone set up in the car that you have, it would have to be an aftermarket add-on. Unless you can come up with manufacturer, model, and possibly the serial number for the phone system you have, I doubt if anyone can help you.

2001 lincoln continental not charging


Start the vehicle use a multimeter and connect the positive lead to the back of the alternator where the battery wire is hooked up, place the negative (black) lead to a good ground. Voltage should be around 14.00 Volts, if not you have a bad alternator. Good Luck.

Where is the voltage regulator located on a 2002 lincoln continental, car battery not holding a charge


Voltage regulators are electronic, internal on most units, now days, and not adjustable. Look for failed diodes. Easiest to pull the alternator and bench test it..

1995 lincoln continental. Sitting at stop light, abs light comes on, drove home about 5 miles and abs lignt on and off the whole time. parked car and now wont start. just clicks. any suggestions?


Anytime a starter clicks instead of turning over, you should suspect your battery is weak. Try to get a jump start and take the car to an auto parts store. Most of them will do bettery and alternator checks for no charge.

check the air ride suspension system if that is causing the problem the car maybe trying to lift the rear end and it will cause the battery to lose charge check in the trunk for a shut off switch and see if that helps
