My Lincoln will not start,. In fact in does nothing with the exception of the security alarm going off

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Lincoln. The Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

I put the key in and when I try to start it I get CLICKING SOUND SEEMS TO ORIGINATE UNDER THE DASH. Then the alarm will start the warning clicking moves to full out alarm. If I turn the key to the start position it stops the alarm but it does nothing, Dead

Mechanic's Assistant: Cars do make very odd noises -- They help the mechanics figure out what's wrong. They are terrific with my old Grand Cherokee. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

I always hope I can fix my own car. Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Unhooking the bbattery terminals for an extended period of time.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Mechanic should be aware of about your Lincoln?

Replacing the battery in the keyless remote

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
