Question about 2003 Lincoln LS
Check the cables for correct tension. If the cables are too loose on the battery, the condition you describe can occur. Also, the battery cables can be fine, and the battery appear to have enough voltage, but can actually have a shorted cell which breaks down under starter load.
Check for corrosion on battery terminals (a white, crusty substance which feel slightly crunchy and greasy between the fingers); this corrosion can be harder to see on side-post battery terminals. Corrosion almost always happens as a result of too loose cables and alternator overcharging. Overcharging is as bad for a battery as undercharging.

You either have a battery that is giving out on you or something is draining the battery when it stands for a while. Have the battery tested first . If that checks out ok then you will have to check for the electrical leakage in your system.
