Customer Question
We have a 2010...

We have a 2010 Lincoln MKT. Today, when my daughter tried to start the car it tries to start and cuts off. The "anti-theft" icon flashes during that time. We have two Lincoln programmed keys. I'm using the one my wife uses daily.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Headlights turn on....radio will run. I've shut them both off. Battery was just tested 2 weeks ago at dealership and all was good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MKT yourself? What have you tried so far?

We disconnected the positive connection to battery for an hour. Hooked back up but still having same issue where engine clicks on then off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I just disconnected both positive and negative terminals 5 minutes ago

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.
