LS 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 81,005 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Lincoln Ls. While applying pressure to the brakes, the accelerator pedal stuck to the floor. As a result, the vehicle involuntarily accelerated and crashed into a fence. A police report was filed. Immediately after the vehicle was repaired, the cruise control stopped working properly and the horn was inoperative. The vehicle was inspected, but the contact could not recall the components that needed to be replaced. The contact also did not remember the cause of the failure. The manufacturer stated that there were no recalls; therefore, they could not assist. The failure mileage was 81,005 and current mileage was 84,000.

2002 Lincoln Ls exhibiting recurring brake system defects. Briefly, the warning lights for the brake system, anti-lock system and the advanced trac system illuminated under normal driving, which was followed by a hard brake with a severe pull to the side. The dealer found faulty ground wire caused a loss of battery voltage to the ABS module, however the problem recurred while driving, the warning lights illuminated on the dash board, the vehicle made a hard turn to the right and a hard braking force was applied, the consumer had great difficulty trying to keep the vehicle under control, minutes later the engine shut off by itself and then restarted by itself, the dealer replaced numerous parts, but the problem recurred. Also the cruise control failed to activate during normal highway driving.
