Question about 2001 Lincoln LS

2005 Lincoln LS - possessed

My traction control light and... parking break light started coming on while driving for no reason. Then, one day - they went out and have never come back on -- even though I know the traction control and parking break are both working properly. When I would turn on the heat via the "auto" button, the AC light always came on too. Now it doesn't. And -- now the heater comes on but... will not regulate temperature. It goes on HOT and stays HOT. The fan runs on high unless I physically turn it down. Yesterday when I tried to turn the radio down by the steering wheel controls -- the volume went UP instead. YIKES!!! I think my car is possessed!

    Sounds as if your car may actually be possessed, have you tried an excorcism, I have the name of a good Priest who can perform your.......Just kidding... Have you had the car since it was new, or did you inherit someone elses nightmare. Seems like you have a serious wiring problem like a quick discnnect in the wiring harness was put on backwards, most of them are idiot proofed, meaning they will only hook up correctly and correcly only but if two connectors are similar and someone had the birds nest of wiring apart for any number of reasons maybe the wiring is crossed.

The LS has several onboard computers that share information on a network. If something on this system shorts or spikes it can cause all kinds of crazy things like this. One of the main culprits for this is ignition coil packs but the coolant control valve has been known to cause these problems also.I suspect that the latter may be the case for you since you only have heat. It mounts to the fan shroud on the passenger side of the car.Try unhooking it and see if this stops the traction control light and parking brake light from coming on.

2004 LINCOLN LS TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT FLASHING & ABS LIGHT ON & BRAKE LIGHT ON. DTC CODES B1342, C1730, C1998.


first check brake fluid level then you will have to test the wheel speed sensors that the codes refer to. when there is a sensor problem it will activate both the abs and traction control lights. the red brake light comes on when there is low fluid condition(leak),worn brakes that need servicing. also if there is a abs module problem it can set codes. you need to know what the codes mean this is a starting place to diagnoise.

My 2002 Lincoln LS v6 Lost Engine Power,Traction Control Light was flashing & ABS light Came on! ANY IDEA?


Had the same problem with my 2002 Lincoln LS, it was a bad wheel speed sensor. The right front wheel bearing had some play in it, so I had the hub assembly replaced. The hub assembly comes with a new wheel speed sensor attached. After I replaced the hub assmbly with sensor, the ABS and Traction Control lights went off. No problem since!

What does srvc (p) mean on a 2004 lincoln ls?


Means your parking break is confused (it's electronic).
This can happen if you unhook/rehook the battery.

How to fix: while engine is running and car is in park, turn parking break on, then off. Repeat. It should now be fixed.

ABS and traction control really are only for panic stops and if your tires slip on wet surface's and yes each tire has a sensor on it. However if the brake light comes on this has nothing to do with the ABS or traction control lights. It's not a parking brake light. This light tells you, you have a serious brake problem.
