SOURCE: transmission 1999 lincoln continental

Transmission model is AX4N.The reason that the car/trans only acts up after long drives is the heat.As metal components heat up,tolerances and clearances that were marginal or borderline before with moderate heat,become excessive clearances when really hot.More than likely there are internal transmission components with excessive wear.Many problematic areas inside the AX4N trans is the pump,where the oil pump driveshaft bearing wears out,the seal is torn,and hydraulic pressure falls off,common failure point in these units.The other areas are typical to all automatic transmissions,the clutch packs and bands wear and lose clearance.as well as some of the bushings inside the unit.I just rebuilt recently a trans exactly identical to your car,V8...4.6Ltr Lincoln,and it had minimal damage inside,but enough to throw the check engine light on with a Torque Convertor Clutch trouble code.The TCC was slipping excessively,and the vehicle computer recognized this,and illuminated the CEL.Chances are good that the damage inside your trans will be minimal,but now is the time to consider rebuilding it and restoring all the hydraulic circuits integrity,and resetting all the clutch pack and band clearances with new clutches,steels,and bands.A remanufactured torque convertor should also be installed along with rebuilding the trans.Be careful as to who does the work on the trans should you decide to rebuild it,as some people's definition of a rebuild doesn't quite qualify as anything more than a patch/repair job.A complete rebuild consists of tearing the trans completely down,loading it into a parts cleaner,and thoroughly cleaning it.From this point,the rebuild begins,including a banner overhaul kit,new steels,bands,seals,thrust washers as required,Electronic Pressure Control solenoid,all new bushings,set clutch pack clearances to factory specifications,along with setting unit endplay,and a remanufactured torque convertor.Good luck.

SOURCE: service traction light comes on abs off and brake light come on on the dash

I had the same problem. I took off the tires and look at the wires, and both of the wires to the hub were broke. 10 min and some tape and problem was fixed.

SOURCE: Impala - trac off and ABS light along with service traction syst

THE PROBLEM IS WITH A HUB WHEEL SPEED SENSOR OR MORE LIKELY THE HARNESS LEADING TO THE HUB.

CHECK THE RESISTANCE AT THE HUB CONNECTION, IT SHOULD BE BETWEEN 900OHMS AND 1300OHMS. THEN SWITCH TO A-C VOLTAGE, IT SHOULD BE 100MV WHEN TURNING THE WHEEL BY HAND. IF BOTH CHECK OUT THE PROBLEM IS IN THE WIRING TO THE HUB.

THE RIGHT FRONT HUB USUALLY HAS A BEND, DOWNWARD THEN UPWARD NEAR THE CONNECTOR TO THE HUB. THAT IS WHERE THE PROBLEM USUALLY OCCURS.

NEW HARNESS WIRES CAN BE BOUGHT AT THE DEALER.

SOURCE: ABS, traction control and hill descent warning

This triple threat occurs on these cars. The dealer may try to sell a whole new ABS modulator but there is a flutter valve repair that they have a TSB for.

My car is saying service ESC


That light means that the computer control module has detected a fault in the Electronic stability control system and it turned on the light to alert you. Right now the system is turned off for your safety. You now need the system scanned for the fault code that is set in the control modules memory.

The ABS light comes on, and sure enough on slipery road conditions, there's no ABS. BUT when it's icy, the ABS light on the dashboard goes out, and checking to see if I have ABS, sure enough I do. It's...


the abs warning light also works with the electronic traction control, (or traction control,same system,different names) and when icy, stops the wheels from spinning,above about 15 mph.(the abs dont work under 5mph) so if im right regarding your question,your car is doing what its supposed to,stopping the driving wheels from spinning/locking up.the warning light comes on when one or the other is doing its job.(working).the trick is to drive so that the warning light doesnt come on..... boring.

The abs light is on and I want to know is it still safe to drive? and what does service esc mean and service traction ison in my hhr is it still safe to drive while Im waiting to get it fixed


the abs light is on because it is telling you that the abs system has a fault in one of the sensors, also with the light on it means that the abs is disabled. the traction control and esc are on because they are linked to the abs

Hi my Chevy Malibu tells me to service my traction and esc, what does that mean? When I turn off my car then turn it on again it goes away but then comes back. Why?


It is a faulty MAP sensor, or Manifold Absolute Pressure... It is a sensor that tells the fuel injection computer how much fuel to use... Common symptoms are:
1. Check engine light comes on and stays on
2. Another light that looks like the back of a car with squiggly screech marks comes on and off (faulty MAP sensor)
3. Kind of odd feeling to the way it drives, similar to transmission symptoms
4. Difficulty starting engine, especially in cold weather
5. Reduced fuel efficiency

Most Pep Boys can fix this

How to Turn off Service Traction Control and ESC messages


I had this problem with my 2007 HHR. I drove away with the service engine and the service traction light on. The car was stuttering through the gears. I took it back and they checked it. They disconnect some wires while they change the oil and one was loose. The service engine turned off but the service traction stayed on. We disconnected the battery for 3 minutes and it fixed the problem. Some of those other guys spent up to 300 dollars to fix the problem. Hope it works out for you.
