If you go into your car Lincoln, and you have too turn the ignition key, over and over and over until the starter starts to spin. IT is NOT your battery its your Solenoid. Connect the 2 points when the Ign is in ON position, then touch the 2 points on the solenoid the thing with the 2 bolts side by side. If you replace the battery or jump it, it will start by giving the solenoid more amps to connect to the starter, giving you the false sense of a bad battery. Until one day you will; go out there kill the battery and the starter wont even engage. Its not the starter and its not the battery. Its 100% always a solenoid problem. Took me a year to figure out. IT IS the solenoid always 4 Lincoln cars all of them did the same thing, Including continental. So you turn the ignition and you hear one click and nothing. If the battery was really dead it would go tkrkrkrkrkrk, you know its the solenoid if you hear one click and nothing happens until you go back to off position and try again. Meaning it takes you multiple times to get it started.

Town Car Executive Big

I love this car..best car I ever owned..usually trouble free..rear suspension replaced.Replaced the airbag suspension...not good...later on, put rear springs on..fine and a good ride now. I have spent relatively little on this car,especially with the high mileage. The windows don't roll down..no big deal...a/c works good...lights on dash for different things come on intermittently..no big deal..learned to live with it. Interior good for 18 yr old car. But, replaced the ignition switch about two years ago and now am having the same problem, I think. Everything works...lights, radio, etc...changed all of the fuses to ignition, etc....nothing. It just won't start. I replaced the starter,solenoid, generator within the last nine months. I want to replace the ignition, but, I don't know one mechanic, at this time, I can trust. IKE destroyed my great mechanic's business and he started another, not fixing cars,tho. I am stuck without a car!!! Can an old lady fix this problem...I have been known to repair dryers and washers and the like when I had to...usually with a bobby pin...Is this a complex installation...(sorry, my question mark button doesn't work), so, please, if you have done this, please advise...I could wait until hell freezes over before my sons can fix it.
