If you have a voltmeter: With the car engine off, read the DC voltage on the battery - it should be around 12 to 13 volts. With the engine running, the voltage at the same points should be 1 to 2 volts higher. If so, your alternator is working. If you don't have a voltmeter, many auto parts stores or big box stores that sell batteries and tires can check for you.

One of 2 ways.......

#1) mounting screws on the exterior of the brake light lens.

#2) in the trunk behind the carpeting, usually this is the easiest way. either way the bulb is held in by a twist lock bulb holder.

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.

SOURCE: need to check the transmission fluid in my 2000 lincoln ls

Hello okiecouple, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing

There is no "Dip Stick" on this Transmission. Instead, there is a Drain/Fill/Check Hole on the bottom back side corner of the Transmission. Below is a picture of it...
On these Lincoln Transmissions, for proper test results you need the vehicle sitting perfectly flat (in the shop, we have equipment to ensure the vehicle is perfectly level). I went ahead and made you up the Transmission Fluid Checking Procedure in .pdf format. You can download it by clicking HERE. I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesisitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader.

2000 lincoln LS battery and power problems?

Not much to go on here. Have your battery checked out at your local parts store (O'reilly, Auto Zone, Advanced, Napa, ect.) as they will do this for free. If that checks out, then have your alternator looked at as well. If you are able to pull that, they will also look at that for free at those places, however the alternator is not in a convenient place in this car and access can be a pain. If all of those check out, I would point to a wiring issue of some kind
