The 97 continental has the button on the left side of the steering wheel which turns the trac control on and off.

If the button doesn't work then all you can do is either take out the fuse for it or get it fixed so the button does engage/disengage it...

1997 Lincoln Continental T/C Active comes on at about 25mph everytime you slow down below say 10mph and accelerate up to 25mph. I can disable it with the switch although I would like it to work properly.

T/C this is the traction control, this is happening because there is a problem, the most common reason would be a bad wheel speed sensor, there are sensors on each wheel that tell the computer how fast the whells are spinning, the speed of each wheel, the computer is always checking the speed and if one wheel speed if slowwer or faster than another then the compuetr activates the traction control, this then controls the speed so that the cars wheels are all at the same speed. If the computer thinks that one wheel is slower than the others then it will slow down acceleration so all wheels spin the same and if theres a bad wheel sensor giving a false signal then the computer thinks that wheel is slipping or locking up and inturn it fixs the problem. the first step would be to have the compuetr scanned to see where the problem is, for example it may a have a code that says left front speed sensor circuit, it may also not have a code all depending on the problem and how bad a sensor is, it may just think the wheel is spinning out or locking up, hope this is helpful good luck.

Check traction control

traction control's speed sensor in the wheel's hub assembly is probably not functioning correctly, not sensing right speed.

Change the speed sensor, sometimes it's included in the hub assembly.

ABS brakes, Traction Controll, Rear Air suspension, Wont Start

I recommend that you go to an autozone or a dealer or another mechanic and have the car put on the computer. That should pinpoint the problem for you.

Check Traction Control warning light

I can't give you an explanation for why the car is telling you to check trac. control but i can try to give some help on maybe fixing it. Try - turning on the car, turn the traction control off, turn the car off, turn the car on. Then turn the traction control back on and push the system check button. That should i guess "reset" the trac control system.

Now the noise from the front right of the car is MOST LIKELY the air compressor pumping air into the bags. (i own a 97 Continental but i've never had a problem witht the trac control)
