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.

It could be the dccv or the evap. discharge sensor,driver's temp sensor or pass temp sensor. Without hooking up a tester to read pids there is no way to tell. I would recommend going to someone that has the ids tester to read pids. good luck.

My gas gauge gauge keeps jumping up and down cant tell how much gas I have

In general, gas gauges are electrical in nature. There's a float in the tank that works a variable resistor. You can wear those out, and get intermittent output, though that issue mostly causes fluctuations at certain fill levels.

Then there's a wire running from the tank sensor above all the way to your fuel gauge. If that wire is intermittent anywhere along the whole length, you'll get what you have now.

Last place, there's a battery connection at either the gauge end or at the tank end. That can also be intermittent, causing the same symptoms you're seeing.

You need to check for all three possibilities, though the first one isn't likely for your symptoms.

03 v6 Lincoln ls. Have a hard time starting car as if it's not getting fuel. When it finally does start driving at night the head lights will go off and back on also when turning the turn signal will...

Have you checked the fuel pressure. If not, start there. Did you check the inline fuel filter. About your lights: Check your negative battery post. Clean the post and the attaching cable end. Obviously you are having an intermittent ground.

Trunk ajar light lincoln ls

I too had the message center beep randomly but I could never find the culprit due to the brief timing. The alarm sounding off is a different and more annoying problem. All of my research points to the battery being at the end of its life. A weak battery or corroded connection on the ground cable will cause both of your problems. Clean the ground cable where it is screwed to the body too. Do your gauges top out (go to max) at startup? If so your battery is suspect and that can be load tested at most auto stores for free. Never buy a battery with less than 750 CCA.

Hi i have a 2005 lincoln ls and it dose not have any power to it when driven and it shakes could that be my air mass sensor

That could be lots of things. What you are describing is a severe cylinder misfire. Misfires can be caused by anything from worn-out spark plugs, to serious engine damage like blown head gaskets or burned valves. They can be caused by the ignition system, the fuel system, engine mechanical problems, or even faulty charging sytem components like a shorted battery cell or bad diodes in the alternator. Randomly replacing parts is the EXPENSIVE way to diagnose the problem.
I would recomend doing a full computer network scan on your vehicle. A qualified service technician can use fault codes and/or other computer data to determine which system is malfunctioning, then diagnose that system to find the actual cause.

I changed battery on my 2000 Lincoln LS and the temperture lights are blinking

Disconnect your battery and make sure it has a full charge.
Low voltage can cause "crazy's"
Leave it unhooked for 30 minutes.This will let your ecm clear its brains out.
Reconnect your battery, and see if it straightens up.

On a seperate concern, make sure you have a battery that is specific fot an LS.
They require a battery with a vent hose connection to keep the hydrogen gas from the battery from collecting in the trunk, and causing an explosion.

Good Luck

Message center says "Fuel Computer Failure", gas gauge drops from 1/4 to empty - car runs out of gas. Fill tank with gas and car runs fine. 2005 LIncoln LS V8.

Im looking online and its looking like the sending unit in the gas tank, this tells the computer how much fuel is in the tank. its in the gas tank with the fuel pump. the gas tank has to come out and its a pretty straightforward easy weekend job. get yourself a haynes or chilton manual for the lincoln at the auto parts store. run it out of fuel again and follow the procedure for tank removal in the book or google it. spray the gas tank strap bolts with wd-40 too. have a garden hose and fire extinguisher handy .
good luck

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

I have a 2005 Lincoln LS with an intermittent problem with ignition coils. The "Check Engine" light comes on and each time it show a code for a faulty engine coil, but each time it shows a different coil....

I have a lincoln ls 2002 and have had the same problems. It is corrected by changing the valve cover gaskets. The oil leaks down into the coils and fouls them out. You will not see the oil around the valve covers on the outside but this should fix the problem. It worked for me
