Engine quit and the Advancetrac light is on. What do I do? :

Customer Question

Engine quit and the Advancetrac light is on. What do I do?
JA: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?
Customer: 225000 kilometers and its the 5.4 engine
JA: Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: we had problems yesterday and today with the truck dying. The battery was replaced and the alternator was checked and was functioning properly. There was some corrosion on the cable that connects the battery to the alternator. Could that be part of the problem?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: possibly
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Lincoln Mechanic should know about your Lincoln?
Customer: it was recently serviced at 2 Lincoln dealers and none of them cuaght the problem.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lincoln Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central everyday. Please let me know exactly what you need from this conversation so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service.

Can I get the year and model vehicle?

So as of right now will it crank and start?

If so are there warning lights on now or running issues?

Thanks Chris

It's a 2006 Navigator. It will not crank and start. Only the one Advancetrac light I can see.

Everything was good but there was some corrosion on the wires.
