My 2006 Lincoln LS self accelerated and hit the tree I was parked in front of. The dealer Liccardi Auto Group located in 130 Rt 22 West, GreenBrook, NJ is where I bought this lemon. I'm fighting to get my money back or trade it in for a different car.
Be very careful if you own or thinking of buying a Lincoln LS

i recently bought a LS at 65,000 miles. Ever since ive had it i will walk up to it at a random point during the day and the trunk and hood will be popped, weird huh? The panic will go off all on its own from time to time. And the windows will roll down on their own, when the car is off. I think my car is haunted.... no one else has had my keys.. someone tell me im not crazy.

I have a 2001 LS and the check engine light is on. for me thats not a big suprise. over the last few months ive put almost three thousand dollars into getting that light to go off. i have gotten to fix a few things that had gone wrong but now my mechanic tells me that the light is for my emissions control. he checked the actual emissions and they are fine but then found out that the emission censoris set too sensitive and it would have to be shipped out of the country to get that fixed. im trying to sell it and i need a quick fix. PLEASE HELP! Anyone.

My 2000 Linclon LS has been acting as though it has overheated. When I pull over for 3-5 minutes, the indicator light goes off and then the car resumes as usual. It is real nerve wrecking and I don't know what to do. When I'm in route the temp gauge slowly goes up and I turn on the heat and it brings it back normal.
I am afraid that it will too expensive if I take it to the dealership. ANY SUGGESTIONS????

My 2001 transmission warning comes on. My mechanic says that it is reporting error codes 734, 735, and 795.

Since the warning came on, it seems not to get into 4th and 5th gear.

Any ideas?

Louis, I also have a 2001 LSV8 with the exact error. Tranny guy says it could be a PCC solenoid?, but thinks it may take a few hours to diagnose. I will probably just take it to my local dealer for diagnosis. If you get any further info, please reply.

I too have a 2001 LS and I have been experiencing the same problem. I was told it was the fuel injectors. I had two injectors replaced and the engine light went out for about two weeks. No one has told me about it being related to an emissions problem. I like the car but I have spent thousands trying to fix it, so I have to sell it.

I had the solenoid pack replaced, failed again after 500kms. I am told that it is the valve body, Ford had to order it, it will be installed this week. They will credit me for the solenoid pack. I'll let you know if all is ok.

The control to disable either Traction Control or AdvanceTrac is on the center console. If it has a little picture of a spinning tire on it, you have Traction Control. If it has a picture of a sliding car, then you have AdvanceTrac. Also, you can press the Status button and wait until the last displayed item: it should say "Advancetrac OK" if you have it.

I have a 2000 Linclon LS V6. It has been a wonderful car and now has 105K miles but still strong. My repair shop tried to do an alignment and sid the ball joints were shot and had considerable travel. I can feel it on the road as well.

I heard about a recall where Lincoln did not properly tighten the ball joints but I checked and this recall did not effect my VIN number. I also found that the ball joints are not replacable but are a part of the lower control arm at $300.00 each.

Is is reasonable that this would wear out so soon?
Can the parts be gotten any cheaper?

Thanks
Chuck
