Question about 2004 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

Sometimes won't start - absolutely nothing when you turn the key

We have had this problem since we bought the car ( in 2006).

Sometimes, you go to start and nothing happens. Changing keys sometimes works and somethimes you just have to let it sit for a while.

A very frustrating problem that the local Ford dealer has not been able to solve despite re programming keys etc.

Ignition problems. Sometimes the car will start and sometimes it won't even try. I thought maybe holding the gear shifter up will help and sometimes putting it in neutral will work when nothing e


From what you describe it sounds like the shift linkage needs adjustment.Was any work done on the transmission,or did you bottom out recently? I don't think it's electrical.Also don't keep a lot of keys on your ignition key ring this can wear the key slot and also cause the erratic starts.Good luck.

Car won't start, seems to have power, all lights working. when I turn the key nothing happens. this only happens sometimes


Could be a bad alternator.. It may not be holding charge. Or your starter could have failed.

Though I've had the same problem and it was a dead battery in my vehicle. Had enough power, but to keep the car on..

It sounds like the ignition lock cylinder has worn out. This is the part you put the key into. It has tumblers that can wear out and when this happens, the key no longer pushes the tumblers in the correct sequence or position to allow the cylinder to turn at all.

Hope this helps!

Some it starts


my 97 geo metro will not start when I turn the ignition key. The radio will work, buzzer etc. I can jump it with another car and it will start and run. If I turn ignition key to start, there is absolutely no crank, no click, no nothing. Could this be ignition module, bad battery, voltage regulator, starter?

Check And Clean Your Battery Cables Really Good. Make Sure You Cut Some Of The Insulation Back From The Terminal To Make Sure The Cable Is Not Corodid Further Down.
