Make sure the stereo wasn't wired directly to the battery. Alot of times when/if you buy a preowned vehicle, you may discover that the previous owner had the stereo wired directly to the battery. This can be nice if you are working outside or on your vehicle and want the luxury of listening to your system without having the switch on and not having to hear that annoying ding, ding, ding...if you need to have your driver side door open. However it can be a pain if you turn the volume down and forget it's still on you will end up with a dead battery. It's possible if you were straight wired that when you had the new battery installed the stereo wire was unnoticed and became detached from it's connection.

I have a 02 lincoln ls. when i bought the car the radio and cd player woked but after awhile the cd player quite working. shortly after my alternater went out i got the replace and now the entire radio...

Hi Eric, I'm glad to help!
Eric, you'll need to check power and ground at the CD Player Connector. If it has both power and ground then you need a new CD Player. If it doesn't have either power or ground, which ever one it deosn't have you'll need to find out where it gets it power from OR where it gets its ground from and repair it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Eric.

I have a 2001 lincoln ls and need the code to unlock the cd player how can i get it

No codes on an LS. Just checked my manuals and called the dealer for you. Some 99 on fords do,not yours. You have to pay diagnostic time for scanner hook up and entertainment troubleshooting, dealer or local shop. eg; your radio broke!

If the battery is draining at all ,beyond 40 milli amps continuous,which is what keeps the radio clock,pcm (computer) and other devices powered up,then something is not timing out,such as windows,door locks,on the LS the radio etc. Retained memory is just that or it goes to sleep ie no current flow. I won't go into how you check current flow but it is fairly easy. The time consuming task will be to find the offender. You could pull all the fuses and replace them one at a time,but need an ampere meter in the circuit,so that's why I won't go into it. Now fuses alone are just a start and time here is limited. The LS has an awfull lot of stuff. I have a 2004. Even the Alt and a long list of things could cause this.

2001 Lincoln LS 3.9 WONT START WITH 12v POWER!

Make sure the battery is fully charged first. Now you need to find out if spark to the spark-plugs is present and that the fuel pump is working. Let me know and we'll go from there.
