Question about Lincoln Aviator
Have replaced battery four times. What's causing this issue?
How often do you use the vehicle?
Posted on Mar 22, 2014
In my Lincoln L/S, the first one lasted 3 1/2 years & was done under warranty
Second one lasted 5 years
Now that one failed two weeks ago at 20 months
In my case the battery is in the trunk & you can't find a battery with
a vent for that car & ford batteries are on odd size, just for their
design or group size,go figure
The Motorcraft Max is free for 3 years & pro rated for 100 months,
so not a bad deal.
IF you have a big enough battery tray & a basic looking battery,
try the NAPA Legend Batt 8465 750 CCA 65 BCI (group size)
They are from East Penn MFG in Penn & plants in other states & their own brand is DEKA in the private parts stores
What I like is that there are no caps on top & no leaking, just like
the old AC Delco I used for 40 years & got 7 to 9 years out of them
I have had a Napa in my 30 year old blazer for two year so far
The question,well I think it is part battery & part the load the electronics puts on the batteries
When I open the trunk & have only the trunk light on & with a
new or old battery, I only get 12.3 volts
I get the same thing on my scan tool data when I turn off the car
& then put the key on,yet all data is good KOEO or Engine Running.

Every car different, call an auto rescue or towing company, the trucks are usually equiped with slim jims, that can be used to gain access to your vehicle.
Hope this helps.

On my 2004 Aviator, the indicator was lit all the time, and it did kill the battery if I didn't drive it every day. The dealer stated it should only remain lit for 20 minutes, and replaced the shift assembly. Sounds like they shortened the illumination time to 10 minutes.
