Lincoln Navigator Problems
Prior to jacking or lifting a vehicle with air suspension, you must turn off the suspension switch. The switch is generally located in the trunk or on the right side of the passenger foot well.
In high dust areas, problems with the EGR system are common. The filter for the EGR solenoid may plug and cause the EGR to activate when it should not; this can cause the engine to stall. The dirty filter should be replaced to correct this concern.

Lincoln Navigator Recalls
Certain vehicles may have been assembled with a transmission range sensor (TRS) that was calibrated out of specification for reverse gear. If this condition exists, the transmission may not properly engage reverse gear and/or if reverse gear does engage, the "R" indicator on the dash or the backup lamps may not illuminate. These conditions increase the risk of a crash or a pedestrian being struck due to the vehicle's not signaling it is in reverse. Dealers will inspect and replace the transmission range sensor as necessary to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12C23.
These vehicles may have inadequate welds on the head restraint support brackets for the second row, right side seat. In the event of a crash, the head restraint may not provide adequate protection, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the head restraints as necessary to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12C22.
Ford has recalled certain 2009 Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles because the brake light switch may be improperly adjusted. The brake lights may fail to light up, which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will adjust the brake light switch to the proper position.
Lincoln Navigator Reviews
Recently purchased this 1999 lincoln continental. Have not been able to drive the car since leaving the seller's lot. There is a problem that causes the battery to go dead due to the interior lights staying on too long and or coming on by themselves through out the day. What can I do to stop the lights from running down my battery? What electric part do I need to fix this problem?
Some problems with suspension when it get cold the truck won't raise up right away! I don't know what to do about that.
We brought this truck used with 65,000 miles on it. It has been one of the best trucks I have owned, I know have 210,000 miles and still going strong. I replaced the air shocks with coils, had a tune up at 150,000 miles. And had to replace the starter but the truck still looks good and drives great....
