I have a 2001 LS Lincoln. No owners manual. The dash has a couple of codes on an led type screen for "change AC filter" and "change oil" messages. I did the work but the messages still need to be removed. HELP!!


Look for the Information Center panel above the Audio controls.. There should be 4 buttons labeled Fuel, Setup, Reset, and Status. With the engine running, press the Status button until the change oil required message appears, then press and hold the reset button until the message appears that says oil life restored to 100%. Do the same for the a/c filter.
