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!
I had the same problem about 4 mths. ago, and it was my alternator. I have a 2002 Lincoln LS V8.

I have a lincoln 2005 LS and it is the shop for the same thing, they are repairing at no cost so apparently this is happening on a lot of cars.
