Question about 2001 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

Postive and negative terminal touch now no power to car

I was attempting to jump start my 2000 Lincoln LS and I hooked the cables up to the LS and was about to attach them to the running vehicle and the positive and negative clamps touched. It sparked and then I had no power to the LS. Now the LS will not do anything. Any help would be great.

1 Answer I hook up the power to instaall into anotheer car

Are you asking how to hook up some jumper cables? If so, connect the two leads on the car you're jumping to the positive and negative terminals on the battery. Then connect the leads on the other end of the cables to the positive terminal (same cable as on the car to be jumped) on your battery and the other lead to a good "ground" (a manifold bolt, chassis bolt or - least desirable - the negative terminal of your battery). Be careful not to touch together or cross/switch the leads on either end of the cables once one end has been connected.
If that isn't what you're asking about, post back and we'll go from there.

Dead battery on a 2005 Lincoln towncar

You should be able to jump start it. Before connecting cables make sure the ignition is off on both vehicles also do not let the black and red jumper cable clamps touch . When connecting cables connect the red cable to the good batterys positive terminal first. Next connect the other end of the red cable to the positive post of the dead battery. Third connect the black cable to the good batteries negative terminal. Last connect the other end of the black cable to a good ground on the dead car, this can be a nut or bolt or part of the frame. Start the engine of the good car, rev the engine slightly then try to start the good car. Remove the cables in reverse order from installing them.

I have a 2000 lincoln ls. what does p-j\b stand for? thats what it says in my owners manuel for my fuses

That's power to the junction block which is the power box for almost everything! I've seen so many things draw power on those lincolns, if your familiar with a volt meter I would hook it up in between the negative battery cable and pull all fuses one by one until you can narrow it down more then just the J/B fuse..

Battery dead no trunk access 2001 Lincoln LS how to jump start car

locate your starter motor.There you will find a thick single core cable (usually bolted onto solenoid).Get a fully charged battery and jumper leads.Connect negative lead to ground(any unpainted metal surface on chasis) or engine.Connect the positive clip to the stud described earlier.If you connect the other ends to the booster battery you should get enough power to open the trunk and then jump start the dead battery normally.If there seems to be no power in the circuits use the battery of a car with its engine running as a booster instead of a standalone battery.

2000 Lincoln LS V8. Trunk lock cylinder is damaged and the battery is dead. Is there a way to provide power to the trunk solenoid or an alternate way to charge the battery?

You could connect jumper cables from another car or battery to the battery side of the starter solenoid. Connect the negative cable to the engine for a ground. This should make your trunk switch work.

Car is idling and suddenly all powr is gone. i raised the hood and banged on positive cable connector on battery and then power is back. i adjusted the cable car started and then about 5 minutes later...

Have your battery checked...and while its being checked, tap on the positive terminal to see if there is some kind of internal connection problems in it.

Why wont my Lincoln ls start? There is just a click when I turn the key.

The click usually indicates a low battery or corrosion at the battery terminals. Try removing the cables (Negative first) and cleaning the battery terminals and cable connections. Reconnect the cables (Negative last), check and replenish the water in the battery cells if yours is a serviceable battery, and then try a "jump" start. If this fails, chances are that you need a new battery.

How to jump off a BMW 325CI

The battery for your car is located in the trunk. There are jumper terminals located under the hood in the front of your car. There is a Red (+) terminal that is under a little black cover on the passenger side of the engine bay near the firewall. Right near that is a silver/gray bolt that is bolted to the frame of the car. This is the negative terminal.

Make sure both cars are and all accessories are off:
1) Connect the Postive cable to the dead battery
2) Connect the Positive cable to the good (BMW) terminal
3) Connect the Negative cable to the good (BMW) terminal
4) Connect the Negative cable to the dead battery
5) Start the BMW. (if you have 2 people then gently rev the engine)
6) Start the dead car.
7) Let both cars idle for a while before disconnecting any cables
8) Remove in the opposite order.
