My Lincoln mks has a starting problem!
, yes, last week…

Customer Question
Hi, my Lincoln mks...

Hi, my Lincoln mks has a starting problem!

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Yes, last week it seemed to be fine, then one day when I pushed the start button, nothing...so I had someone come and jump it as I was stranded. I brought it home and charged the battery, next day it started, a couple of times, then happened again. So I bought a new battery, put it in over the weekend, everything seemed fine until tonight, same thing, wont start. Wont even try!

Mechanic's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Lincoln Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Yes.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). No experts here are Just Answer employees, we do not get a paycheck or benefits from JA. We are independent contractors, only paid when you rate our answer.

Do you own a digital volt meter so we can diagnose this electrical issue?

No, I dont.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
are we still on?
Lincoln Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Since you do not have the tool we need to diagnose this. What from me, are you looking for so I can best tailor my answer to your needs.

well, I see there have been several other people writing with this type of issue, just kind of looking for some trouble shooting ideas, have no idea if I should call someone to tow it or just what?
Lincoln Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

I can help you trouble shoot this but I will need you to have the tool needed to do the test. If not I am left with making an educated guess when I can do much better than that. I just want you pleased with my full help.

When you turn the headlights on are they bright and remain bright while trying to start?

they do. If I did have a meter, what would you have me do?
Lincoln Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

We would test the battery voltage, then test the starting circuit to find why the starter relay is not being energized.

Well, I might be able to get one tomorrow, but that doesnt help us tonight. Have you seen this problem before?
Lincoln Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes I have diagnosed this issue. Can you report back tomorrow once you get the tool?
