Hello my name is ***** ***** you tested battery voltage across the top of the battery?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no...couldn't find the battery

The battery is under the hood, mounted left side towards the cowl, kind of tucked back in.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question

Left is drivers side. This isn't a hybrid is it?

How do I open the trunk

Here is a picture of the location.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Couldn't download the picture location

You will need to pop the hood, and either jump start or charge the battery through the jump start posts, then once hooked up you can pop the trunk, or you can fold down the rear seats and use the manual trunk release.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question

O​k well you don't really need the picture anyway, the battery is mounted drivers side rear of the trunk.

Couldn't find battery under hood...will try to open trunk manually. Give me a couple minutes

The battery is in the trunk,

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Damn it was a tight fit...battery is very clean and looks brand new

Do you have a voltmeter to check voltage?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No I don't sorry...i am not a mechanic

Do you have a charger or booster cables?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I think I've got booster cables but no charger

Ok I would try to boost it, you might have a bad battery or a drain on your electrical causing battery to go dead after it sits for awhile.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok let me try will be a few minutes

Red to red, black to black, make sure this is correct, there are to many modules on these cars and hooking the cables up backwards can get costly.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok i got it started...now what

I would let it run for 20-30 minutes to charge the battery, then have the battery tested, charging system tested and checked for drains also. To charge a battery properly it take about 2-3 hours. Do you have any warranty left on the vehicle?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I believe so...not sure

Does your vehicle have power decklid?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
What is that

P​owered trunk lid, when you hit the trunk release the deck lid is powered up and down by a motor.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it has powered trunk lid....saturday the trunk wouldn't open with the Bob
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I will charge it up for half hour and see what happens but if it won't start what do you recommend

Ok I found a SSM from Ford for reprogramming the RGTM module for intermittent drain on the battery, I bet this is the problem here.

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question

I would definitely make sure this module is programmed to the latest calibration, if not, this should hopefully take care of your concern as long as the battery tests and charge tests pass.
