Lincoln Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!
did they do a draw test on the system?
if your having battery issues that would be the test to do, those systems are known for having bcm draw issues that cause the issue your talking about,
If you have a warranty on it I would take it to a different dealer, not all dealers are the same and it sounds like they dont want to help you
all sorts of things like a door switch malfunction, ground problems, timer setting issues, wiring problems, connector issues,
not likely but it could, it could be transmitting false signals and waking up the vehicle, but you would be able to visually see this and hear the car unlocking or locking and alarm going off
again you would be able to see a transmission signal of some sort, so unlikely but possible, how long does it sit before you drive it? also does it have the original battery in the car?
that shouldnt be enough time to do anything, it would take 2 months atleast for something to happen and that would be on a weak battery,
4 yr/50,000 mi basic, 6 yr/70,000 mi powertrain so you should be able to take it anywhere you want,
you would want to take it to a GM dealer like GMC, Cadillac or Chevrolet
or lincoln of course
let me know what they say or if you have any other questions
Customer satisfaction is my number one goal. Giving me a 5 star rating would be appreciated very much .You can do this rating at the box on the upper right hand corner. This will not close our chat session and at no extra charge we will still be able to talk about any other issues you may have for free up to 3 weeks! Providing a rating is the only way I will receive credit for my work with you. So if you run into any issues later dont hesitate to log back on and shoot me a question, it will be covered under the original fee and I would like to see you get the most out of your hard earned dollar.
no problem! good luck with everything!
