If it's not the battery, it's definitely the alternator. I am 95% sure that it is, I own a 2000 Lincoln LS and I had that same problem bout 2 to 3mths. ago. Replaced the battery it wasn't that, took it to Meineke Car Care Center and they told me my alternator had gone bad. Good luck on that!

what is the condition of your battery? Many newer cars can experience erratic problems if the battery voltage gets too low or if the charging system is weak. If your warning lights are coming on, you should scan for any stored trouble codes. That will give you a place to start.

Their is currently a recall on the coils. The dealership will fix it for free, however, if you have an eight cylinder you will have to wait and return the car every time one goes bad. I'm currently having my third one replaced.
