    jan 6 on open road & weather conditions good with no warning & msg displayed “POWER FAILURE” Vehicle has 42K miles & regular service by Lincoln Dealer. This is scary as HELL knowing i have traveled many trips out west in Rockies – even to top of Pikes Peak 15,000 ft. If this failure had occurred then – all dead as no brakes or power steering. Does anyone have any info OR maybe NTSA?


    Don’t trust Lincoln. see,,,,,,Continental Internal Water Pump Failure


    Had that happen to me but it was after I came out from grocery store on Ford Fusion 2016 Hybrid. Towed it to dealer. Dealer found a million codes but not anything wrong so they reprogrammed computer and tightened all of the electrical connections for the hybrid system. They figure it was a loose connection somewhere. Never happened again. Just a fluke. Sounds similar to your situation.


    Possible problems – bad battery all Lincolns are power hungry I had an intermittent power failures on my 2016 MKZ check the alternator for issues, throttle body, ECU, Bad ground connection. Suggestion if it is a come and go thing have your phone ready and take video of the error message on the screen if the dealer won’t help then call Lincoln concierge. They may say a picture or video isn’t good enough and it ended up being that because I had an intermittent backup camera problem and they had to hook it up to their computer it failed in me in the dealer lot and I sat in the quiklane idling because I knew if I shut it off it would work again. I sat there 45 min and the service manager took a picture of the error message on my screen. Be nice and take control of the situation they end up normally folding
