Have you had the system checked to see if altenator is charging? A bad ground connection can cause a no charge or low charge condition.I would take car to parts store and have them test the whole system.

Engine not turning over, even will not take a jump


If the battery is completely dead - you need a new battery - if the battery is relatively new check the water in it let it charge by hooking up jumper cables to another vehicle for 5 -7 minutes and see if you get anything if so the battery needs to be charged - you need to go get the alternator check RIGHT AWAY because it is not charging the car when its running as it should

2000 Lincoln LS V8. Trunk lock cylinder is damaged and the battery is dead. Is there a way to provide power to the trunk solenoid or an alternate way to charge the battery?


You could connect jumper cables from another car or battery to the battery side of the starter solenoid. Connect the negative cable to the engine for a ground. This should make your trunk switch work.

My 2000 lincoln ls battery keeps dying have bought 2 new batteris same peoblem is something draining the power?


Either something is draining the power or your alternator is not recharging your battery. Do you have a DC voltmeter? With the engine running check the voltage accross the battery it should be about 14 volts. If it's down around 12.5 volts with engine running the alternator is not working. If you determine the the alternator is working and the battery goes dead, then there is a draw on the system. It could still be the alternator though, there are diodes in the alternator, a diode acts like a one way gate for electricity. With one bad diode the alternator will still work but, when you shut the car off the alternator drains the battery back down. Something is drawing it down, without testing equipment, you'll have to take it to a shop. Something you could try, after the car has been shut off for while, an hour or more, go feel if the alternator is warm or hot, if so it's drawing the battery down. Disconnect the battery overnight so it doesn't go dead on you.

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.
