Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

My 1197 Lincoln Contenetel has had the dash board lights flicker then go off. When the car is turned off it will not start. The battery is drained. It has a new alternator, new fuel pump and new crankcase sensor. It has been to the dealer so often and they can never "recreate the problem"

Why does my 1998 lincoln continental drain the battery, have flickering dash lights, fluctuating power steering assist, and disabled air shock pump continues to run even with switch in trunk off?


Battery drain caused by a short to ground (frame or body) somewhere. Most likely this short is intermittent, which makes the dash lights flicker, similarly the power steering assist. Most likely the trunk switch issue is the "short to ground" . Visually inspect carefully all wiring in near and by the switch, and Air Shock Pump. I like the new very bright Led flashlights for this kind of thing. You may also discover the short by observing the trunk electrical in the dark while the engine is running thus viabration causing the intermittent behavior. You may see flashes from the short (if you are lucky) Otherwise it will take a lot more inspection and checking. Good luck, hope it is the easier to find in the trunk.

2000 Dodge Intrepid, when I turn on the car the lights flicker but it won't turn over. no clicking sound. The cd player starts making noises.


It sounds like the battery is flat, this could be because the alternator has not charged it or something has drained the battery or the battery is faulty! What lights are flickering? We're any dash lights on prior to you not being able to start the car?

I have a 01 Lincoln Continental that wouldnt start. After paying $69 to the repair shop they told me that the alternator and belt are working like they should but the battery wont hold a charge. I took the battery to Sears (6 month old Diehard) and after a day and a half they said the battery is good. Now the car starts each time but the lights(inside and out) all flicker and when you press the gas they flicker more? After about 5 minutes the flickering stops. What could be the problem?
