Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental
I just finished converting my rear air suspension to a passive suspension system using Strutmasters kit. At the same time, I replaced the electronic sensing shocks with passive shocks. The car drives fine and the rear end no longer sags. I then went through the steps to disable the air ride suspension (cut and tape pink wire with light blue stripe, cut and tape tan wire with orange stripe, cut and ground light green wire with black stripe, and splice light blue wire with yellow stripe to VDM ignition power wire (purple wire with orange stripe)). Before I did so, the compressor ran continuously, and the check air ride and check traction messages came on. After I did so, the compressor no longer runs, and the check air ride message went away. However, the check traction control message stayed and the new problem is that my ABS light is now on continuously. The car drives fine, the steering is fine, and the brakes work fine. Any suggestions?
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.
