Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Lincoln Aviator Windows and Audio Problems

edited March 2016 in Lincoln
Driving down the road with my windows partially down in my 2004 Lincoln the audio goes off, as well as the screen - navigational system, and the controls for the windows stopped working (all 4). Thinking it was a fuse, we checked all we thought had to do with the problem, but nothing worked.
Any Ideas?

This is after my window liftgate panel was replaced twice in 3 years for being cracked, replaced rear suspension $$, replaced both rear window motors after being out less than a year after i got the car NEW, replaced sun visors twice beacuse of plastic breaking, and the whole panel on the roof controlling rear a/c-sunroof-garage door openers- decided to break and completely fall off, hanging on by only the wires (which we had to disconnect). I don't want to take it back to the dealer b/c i feel like i'm loosing my money over $5000 and it's still a POS!

    There was a reason it was discontinued...........

    We had an 03 for 4 1/2 years with none of those problems. But we did have the head problem and a bad rear hatch release.

    This could be the front end module. Check ALL the fuses in the fusebox.

    First it was my back right window that stopped working about 3 months ago. I waited on getting it fixed because at times when I tried the window it would work. I rarely roll down the back windows, but I would make a point to check on the status every week and about 1/8 of the time the window was working.
    One month ago my driver side window got stuck due to the weather stripping coming loose. I made a point not to use it until I could bring it to the dealer. When I brought it in a needed a new regulator in the front and the back. I paid $$$$$ for these two windows.
    Last week my back left window all of a sudden stopped working.
    Does anyone know why this could be happening??? I almost feel like the dealer did something to the left window because the same week I got my car back from the dealer I noticed a small screw on the running board directly below the left rear window. Also I could tell that the door panel had been put back on, I just assumed they had checked that window as well.
    If anyone else has had problems with the regulators going out all within a couple months, please let me know about it.

    :confuse: Halfway through a roadtrip, stopped for lunch, restarted the Aviator after an hour and none of the power windows nor the stereo would operate. Checked all fuses in pass compartment and relay box under hood; nothing appeared blown or burnt. The CD player will eject & load (the messages appear in the display), even though the radio will not come on. I find it interesting that the Radio and Power Window Controls both quit at the same time. Any ideas what to check? :confuse:
