Question about 2002 Lincoln LS
About a week ago, while driving on the highway, the gauges went crazy, lights dimmed and went out, radio went out and the car died. Eventually got it jumped and drove back home. It acted up with gauges going crazy and stuff at over 50mph. The shop I took it to said they couldn't find anything wrong. No error codes came up. I bought a new battery. Shortly after my front drivers side window got stuck in the down position. Taking the door panel apart and trying to find the problem only led to it works when it wants and doesn't when it doesn't. It has since died while driving. The alarm and headlights have gone nuts by themselves. I'm getting the error codes "change ac filter", which has been on for a while, "check advanced track system", and the newest one "check charging system" (that came on when all of these problems started. The driver window was previously stuck down and may have gotten some water inside the door panel. I'm learning that's where the FEM is. Could this be the problem?
Low voltage can cause the type of erratic symptoms you describe.. see if the alternator is putting out 13 to 15 volts with engine running. any autoparts chain will do this for you gratis

Sounds like your window assembly has failed or the cable has broken. An easy repair, once the door panel is removed and the assembly disconnected from door.

You could have a bad connection somewhere. Possibly on the alternator. You also may have a bad ground somwhere. Hope this helps any

Can you hear the window motor work? If positive, then you have a mechanical problem. Possibly the cable lifter is not installed properly. If motor is dead check fuse box.
