SOURCE: Power loss on 2003 Lincoln Town Car

make sure to try in neutral and see what happend also make sure you don't have an afetrmarket alarm they will keep you starter from working and finally have someone to top on the starter while you step on the brake and while you hold the key all teh way in like when you are cranking and if it crancks then your starter must to be replaced
also not matter how the batterie looks laways try a jump start to it

SOURCE: 2000 lincoln ls heater not working...thermostat?

- If temp guage reads normal, the lack of heat may be due to the Heater Control Valve. Located in front of the radiator. Lower passenger side. A real bugger to replace.
- The plastic cap just over the thermostat is key in re-filling the anti freeze and bleeding air.

when you replaced the battery it was very possible that you may have blown a fuse. Check your fuses for your radio and your cig lighter.

What caused my Lincoln ls to surge while foot was on the brake?

My 1st guess or 1st instinct would be to say it's a computer software issue, becasue I can't think of anything mechanical that could cause this type of issue. I suggest instead of asking here, you contact your car dealer or manufacturer.

The parking break won't disengage on my Lincoln Ls 2003.

Try checking the fuse for the parking brake. If that doesn't work check the ground meaning you might have to remove the cover were the parking brake button is. If that's not it you have to have someone check the parking brake cable which is located behind the brake caliper in the rear of the vehicle. Sorry for the long novel just giving you the most common things before it drives you crazy. Hope it helps if anything just post again and ill b glad to help you again. Thanks good luck.

Do you drive with your foot on the brake? That could do it, or could have calipers that are not fully releasing, or "soft" brake pads.

03 Lincoln LS Check engine light on and car is hesitating

Just figure i would try and help, Did you get gas just before this happened? It could be as simple as bad gas, However i have seen problems with them having bad ignition coils.
I think its like $300 for a diagnostics at a Lincoln dealer and i know you can get a set of six ignition coils for $225.00
Well good luck in the morning and i hope it is just bad gas, Well let me know and good luck.

When I start-up the engine and put it in drive, I could feel the car raise up. what happened; it does not do it any more. Lincoln LS 2002 -V6

That feeling of raising up,only happens when your foot is on the brake and you pull up on the Electronic Parking Brake.

Also what you discribe,could be caused by starting the engine and immediately putting it in gear,before allowing the idle to come down.

I never start any vehicle and drive away. Even in warm weather I let the vehicle warm up about three minutes or more and drive slow for a couple of miles ,until it is in closed loop. That's when the O2 Sensor takes over and controls the fuel system. So forget about saving fuel by leaving on a cold engine. That is nonsense and not fact or theory based.
