Question about 2010 Lincoln MKX

I replaced the battery but now the outside temperature gauge doesn't work

The last time I replaced the battery, I replaced the module for the outside temp gauge. Does this have to be done each time I replace battery?

Sometimes. If that's all you replace, you are lucky. Newer cars can have to replace a whole lot more, or have to be reprogrammed. Anyhitng above 2007, I put power threw the lighter or power point to keep things alive.

Temperature sensor failure or loose wiring at temperature sensor, temp sensor is located near water pump at upper radiator hose housing.

Jeep stalls gauges don't work windows and locks and radio don't work


when you state it wouldn't crank, do you mean the starter won't engage or that it just spins over and doesn't start? if no gauges or no starter engagement, then check the battery, battery connections,and the starter for excessive amperage draw. if the starter spins and the engine won't start, then check crankshaft position sensor first. the crank sensor is a more common failure than the distributor or any of the other things you mentioned.

You need to get a digtal voltage meter (about $15) and check it out yourself-readings at the battery should be 12.5 volts after sitting overnight. Once you start it, the readings at the battery terminals should go up to almost 15 volts when first started, then gradually drop down to around 14.2 volts-I would bet either your battery is bad, or your battery is bad and your alternator has failed trying to supply power to a bad battery-either way, your mechanic should not have allowed the battery light to stay on after changing out the alternator without finding out what was wrong-he did not fix it.

Temperature gauge fluctuates and the heater blows cold air


Definitely check your fluid level in your radiator. Top it off all the way. I've seen that happen multiple times on cars that were low on anti-freeze. If that doesn't work try replacing your thermostat. It's cheap and the easiest place to start if topping off the fluid doesn't get you fixed up.
