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: 2000 Lincoln Ls Heater blowing cool air

You also could have air in your coolant system. You can't just add coolant on these models after you drain the system or let it run low on coolant. The degas bottles on these models also have a flaw, where they crack along a seam. Sometimes coolant will leak, sometimes not, depending on how high the crack is on the bottle. But what it is guaranteed to do is allow air into your system, which can cause havoc with overheating (air surrounds the thermostat so it doesn't open) and keep coolant from flowing, particularly through the highest point in the system: the heater core. There is a heater core bleeder valve attached to a line near the top of the degas bottle (next to the expension line up top) with a plastic, flathead srewdriver face. Turn the heat on high and run the system at idle for 5 minutes. Then open the valve and keep it open until a steady stream of coolant comes out. (It's like bleeding your brakes.) That will clear any air from the system and at least give you peace of mind that this is not your problem. Then run the motor at 2000 rpms, with the heat still on high, for about 5 minutes or until hot air starts coming out. Release the bleeder valve again until a steady stream comes out. Then let the system cool and check your coolant level and fill as needed. I'd pull the degas bottle and inspect it...should have been a recall.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system and disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes. Plug the hoses and the heater core tubes to prevent coolant leakage.
  3. Remove the 3 nuts located below the windshield wiper motor attaching the left end of the plenum to the dash panel. Remove the 1 nut retaining the upper left corner of the evaporator case to the dash panel.
  4. Disconnect the vacuum supply hose(s) from the vacuum source. Push the grommet and vacuum supply hose(s) into the passenger compartment.
  5. Remove the right and left lower instrument panel insulators.
  6. On 1990-00 vehicles:
    1. Remove the cross body brace and disconnect the wiring harness from the temperature blend door actuator.
    2. Disconnect the ATC sensor tube from the evaporator case connector.
  7. Disconnect the vacuum jumper harness at the multiple vacuum connector near the floor air distribution duct. Disconnect the white vacuum hose from the outside-recirculating door vacuum motor.
  8. Remove the 2 hush panels.
  9. Remove 1 plastic push fastener retaining the floor air distribution duct to the left end of the plenum. Remove the left screw and loosen the right screw on the rear face of the plenum and remove the floor air distribution duct.
  10. Remove the 2 nuts from the 2 studs along the lower flange of the plenum.
  11. Carefully move the plenum rearward to allow the heater core tubes and the stud at the top of the plenum to clear the holes in the dash panel. Remove the plenum from the vehicle by rotating the top of the plenum forward, down and out from under the instrument panel. Carefully pull the lower edge of the instrument panel rearward, as necessary, while rolling the plenum from behind the instrument panel.
  12. Remove the 4 retaining screws from the heater core cover and remove the cover from the plenum assembly. Pull the heater core and seal assembly from the plenum assembly.
To install:
  1. Carefully install the heater core and seal assembly into the plenum assembly. Visually check to ensure that the core seal is properly positioned. Position the heater core cover and install the 4 retaining screws.
  2. Route the vacuum supply hose through the dash panel and seat the grommet in the opening.
  3. Position the plenum under the instrument panel with the register duct opening up and the heater core tubes down. Rotate the plenum up behind the instrument panel and position the plenum to the dash panel. Insert the heater core tubes and mounting studs through their respective holes in the dash panel and the evaporator case.
  4. Install the 3 nuts on the studs along the lower flange and one on the upper flange of the plenum. Install the 3 nuts below the windshield wiper motor to attach the left end of the plenum to the dash panel and the one nut to retain the upper left corner of the evaporator case to the dash panel.
  5. Position the floor air distribution duct on the plenum. Install the 2 screws and plastic push fastener. If removed, position the panel door vacuum motor to the mounting bracket and install the 2 attaching screws.
  6. Connect the white vacuum hose to the outside-recirculating door vacuum motor. Connect the vacuum jumper harness to the plenum harness at the multiple vacuum connector near the floor air distribution duct. Install the floor duct.
  7. If equipped with manual air conditioning, connect the temperature control cable housing to the bracket on top of the plenum and connect the temperature control cable to the temperature blend door crank arm. Adjust the temperature cable.
  8. If equipped with ATC, proceed as follows:
  9. Connect the temperature control cable to the ATC sensor and adjust the cable. Route and connect the vacuum harness connector to the ATC sensor and connect the electrical connector to the ATC servo connector. Do not block the sensor aspirator exhaust port with the excess vacuum harness. Install the ATC sensor tube between the sensor and the evaporator connector.
  10. On 1990-00vehicles:
    1. Connect the ATC sensor tube to the evaporator case connector.
    2. Install the cross body brace and connect the wiring harness to the blend door actuator.
    3. Install the bolt to attach the lower right end of the instrument panel to the side cowl. Install the right side cowl trim panel and tighten the right door sill plate attaching screws.
  11. Connect the vacuum supply hose(s) to the vacuum source.
  12. Install the right and left lower instrument panel insulators and install the 2 hush panels.
  13. Unplug the heater core tubes and the heater hoses and connect the heater hoses to the heater core tubes. Fill the cooling system.
  14. Connect the negative battery cable and check the system for proper operation. I hope this helps. Don,t forget to rate my answer.

I have a 2001 Lincoln LS with a 3.9L, I changed the heater core, and the OGM heater line that had a crack in it. I alos topped off the antifreeze, I ran the car for 20 minutes and felt all the heater lines...


Your problem could be caused by an air bubble in the heater coil. Take off the thermostat, turn the heater control valve off and on. If it starts working, replace the thermostat. If not, it is probably the heater control valve which will need replaced.

I have a 2000 lincoln ls v8. First the heat would only blow out cold air. Now the car overheats. I've changed the thermostat. The system coolant is full. I don't know what else it could be. Also how can I...


Water pumps go bad when they leak. If there is a lack of circulation, there could be a clog in the system. Is the heater core getting hot on both tubes at the firewall? If not, then the heater core is clogged up. Has anyone ever put too much sealant into the cooling system that would cause an overheat condition due to lack of circulation of coolant?

Good luck on this repair.

My 2000 lincoln ls heater is still not working after i changed the thermostat and water pump,and blowing cool air out. what can it be?


Check the 'heater control valve,' which is attached to the heater hose line under the hood. If it is malfunctioning, it will prevent hot coolant from reaching the heater core, with the result being no heat. This is a $30 part, usually not too tough to get at, although I've never changed one on a Lincoln.
