CEL should come on with key on engine off. As you are cranking vehicle it should go off then after about 10 seconds of cranking it should come back on while cranking,if it does not then the PCM is not seeing a signal from the crankshaft postion sensor.

When I turn my key to the on position the check engine light will not illuminate and the car will not start. If the check engine light illuminates the car will crank fine. What is going on?


Could be a problem with the key switch or the wiring. Someone would need to find out if the computer is getting power when the key switch is on.

1996 Lincoln Towncar Air Suspension Light on and Car shutting off


Check the charging system and check it while the car and engine are hot. The alternator is starting to fail when hot. If the engine is not hot the failure will not show up. And yes I have seen this happen on many cars of all types. A lot of mechanics forget that the problem may not show up till car and alternator are hot.

Check your power to your fuel pump. Put your ear to the filler for the gas and get someone to turn on the key, do not crank.. You should here the fuel pump cut on. If not suspect pump problem. You can also take the lin loose at the fuel filter and check to see if gas comes out after key is turned on and work your way to the engine if you get gas there just follow the lines.

Code po412 for a 1996 lincoln continental


not a big deal to have MIL light on. P0412 is secondary air injection valve switching A circuit.
Try this first. Disconnect battery for 1/2 hour. then reconnect and drive car for 10 miles so computer can relearn engine controls. may run rough during this time. See if that turns light off.
