I have an '01 Lincoln Continental with 57,000 miles on it. I have owned
the car for about two months. It recently has had a set of electrical
problems all at the same time.
1) The keyless entry door keypad quit working. It only illuminates when
the center buttons are pushed. It will not accept the code to open
2) The interior lights cycle on and off continually when the car is
3) The lock solenoids keep trying to lock the doors, usually about once
per second or so.
4) The drivers door mirror tilts to the downward position.
All of these problems are intermittant. I am pulling the door lock fuse
to stop the lock coils from continuously energizing. I pulled the
keyless entry pad fuse and that stopped the interior light from coming
Any ideas on what to check? I was thinking the keyless entry pad was
the culprit but the locks kept trying to lock with the keyless entry
pad fuse removed. I have measured the voltage running at the battery
and it measured 13.23 volts.
Would the Lincoln Mercury dealer be able to pull error codes to see the
problem? ( I had a 99 Crown Vic that I took back under warranty many
many times for a battery drain problem that they could not find)
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
