Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

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

The ABS brakes, Traction Controll, and Rear Air suspension all stoped working at the same time and then the next day when I went to start it, it seemed like it was not getting spark/gas? not sure witch. I checked the fuses, is there something that could cause all of these problems or am I just unlucky and everything just happen to stop at the same time? I figure it has to be an electrical problem, but I don't know where to start looking.

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.

Hello, If you have a Traction control button on the dash, turn it off and the motor should smooth out. You should look at the ABS sensors and internal parts on the rear brake system.

There are several reasons for your problem. It can be any or all of these. The ABS system counts the turns on each wheel. If there is debris like a deteriorated Emergency brake lining, or dust in the rear wheels, the sensor gets confused and loses count.

When the counts do not match on all 4 wheels, the ABS engages to bring them to be equal. One way is by extra braking on the fastest spinning wheel. This can activate the Traction control feature.

The Traction control feature can CHOKE the air off the engine by activating a flap in the air intake nozzle around the Air cleaner. If you think this is happening you can very temporarily disconnect the Air Intake at the Air Horn allowing your engine to breathe dirty air. Keep all the electric connectors plugged in. The motor should now run smooth.

Most likely you have a shorted wire triggering the blown fuse or a bad ABS sensor. You can run the van with the ABS light on as long as the wheels turn freely.

Brake peddle is chattering 2003 ion and would like to pull the anti lock brake fuse (if safe ) until i can afford the repair. I would like to know witch fuse to pull?ABS is on and traction control


If brake pedal is chattering or pulsating it is most likely because you need either front or rear rotors, or both. They are rusted or out of round. If there is something wrong with either your abs or traction control,the abs or traction control light will come on & stay on. As soon as these lights come on, it automatically disables abs or traction control. If you would like to take out fuse that disables abs or traction control circuits, it will leave the lights on.You just wont have their functions. If by some strange condition your chattering goes away, then there is indeed something wrong with your abs or traction control.Fuses are labeled abs or traction either under hood or in your fuse panel in car.

2001 jaguar s type. Traction controll fault light came on. 5 minutes later brake light comes on and at the same time abs light comes on. What could my problem be?


your traction control mechanism uses the abs breaks to slow the spinning and give you better traction. i'm thinking your traction control sensor has gone bad

I had my air suspension removed and now have regular shocks and springs, when i turn the key to start car it will crank but dont turn over, the dash says check traction control, and some times fuel flow...


something is not right in the rear of the car where the work was done either to the abs sensor,or maybe wiring to the fuel pump,which are both in the back.check the work that was done.

IN THE CONTROL PANEL THE CEHCK TRAC IS ON AND THE


the chck trac is on it means the traction controll is on so you wont get wheel spin,

abs stands for anti braking service i think or something like that its when you are driving and someone pulls out in front of you and you hit the brakes the abs kicks in so your front wheels wont just lockup and you keep sliding for ages, the abs is design so that it pumps the brakes on and off with you having to do it so you still have turning controll and should be able to avoid what ever it is your going to hit.

1997 Lincoln Continental Suspension Conversion Problem


It could be a wheel speed sensor that went out or something... When working with the wiring, something could have just gotten crossed or tapped to get these codes as well. The compressor shouldnt be running anymore if everything was tied off properly. Take it in somewhere and have the codes cleared and that should fix the problem hopefully. I know AutoZone has a reader, but I do not know if they have they ability to clear the codes.
I hope this helps.

Just bought a 300M and have some questions about some features, who can help me?


Climate control is the heater/a.c. systems. Multi-Point fuel injection is the type of fuel system the car has. Vented brakes have holes in the rotors to help cool them during heavy braking. Immobilizer is the anti-theft device. Electronic traction control will transfer the power to the wheels so it doesn't slip or loose traction. ABS is Anti Lock Brake system. This is so your brakes doesn't lock up during hard braking. No. 7 is the suspension system for a good ride and cornering. Not sure about No. 8 though.
