Question about 2001 Lincoln Navigator

Open Question

My 2001 Lincoln Navigator won't start

My truck tends to not want to start. I had it towed twice. And everytime when we reach the destination and truck is dropped off, it starts no problems..Doesn't idle hard...nothing. Running normal. I added an Octane booster, filled it with gas and drove it around hard. Flooring it each time. I let it idle for about 15 minutes. I shut it off and didn't start again. I have no clue!!

SOURCE: Problems with Gearshift 2004 Lincoln Navigator

Turn the key forward a notch then it should come out. If you are turning the key all the way off it enables the accessories (radio etc), locks the key in the ignition and disables the gear shifter.
If thats not the case then there is a button to be depressed so that the key can turn anticlockwise>off another click and the key can be removed.
It'll be one or the other....faulty ignition lock is the only other diagnosis

SOURCE: I just bought a 97 lincoln continental.

Hi. I have seen lincolns with 200,000 miles on em.. That said, I am a wee bit suspicious that your had exactly 100,000 miles on it when you bought it. Possible but not likely. Go to a reputable mechanic and see what he says. Shop around. Keep notes so you remember the details. Joe

2007 lincoln navigator the car sign with a lock on comes on and it won't start

Key ignition key has a chip in the key, if the chip does not match the signature the car is looking for, it will not start - this is an anti-theft feature. The key can be programmed from one of your other keys, or by the dealer.

1999 Lincoln navigator cranks but won't start

Does it only do that when the weather is cold?

If it does, it could be the fuel pressure check valve has a leak. One way to check it is to turn the key to the run position for 5-7 seconds before you start the engine. If it starts, that should be the problem.

If it still doesn't. You might have to reset the fuel pump. You can do this by removing the fuse from the fusebox in the engine compartment (it's a 15 amp fuse. I think it's # 17) With the fuse removed, crank the engine twice but make sure you don't hold it too long as you don't want to drain the battery. Two 3 second cranks should be good.

Put the fuse back in and start the engine. Should start then. Hopefully that solves your problem. I'm having the same issue and that is how I start my truck whenever is doesn't want to start. Seems like it only happens when I haven't started it in a while but seems fine when I start it within 4-5 hour intervals.

Turns over - won't start. towed to garage. Starts immediately. This happened twice. What's wrong?

I had this very same problem. I replaced the battery with a Ford 875 cranking amp battery and the fuel filter. The air ride really beats on those batteries, especially if the compressor is worn out.
