Question about 2000 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

2000 Lincoln Continental electrical problem

The car will not start. When you try to start the car the security systems red light on the dash board starts blinking making the car believe that it is being stolen thus not allowing the car to start. I have had my keys reprogramed to no avail and had the "Brain Box" or mother board replaced and still the car will not start. I have had Ford dealers trace the wiring in the car and they can't seem to find anything wrong, yet they can't get the car to start. What can I do? Can the security system be disabled?

    The car does not have a remote starter. Anytime you open any door or trunk the red security light starts blinking. Once you get into the car the light will stop blinking. The process starts all over again when you put the key in and try and start the car. I have tried putting the ignition in the on position and letting it sit for 15-20 min and it still won't start. I have tried rolling the windows down, leaving the doors open, locking and unlocking the doors, leaving the trunk open and all the above all at once.

After entering the 5 digit code that is currently installed, press the 1/2 button and enter your new 5 digit code. After entering your new code, press the last 2 buttons (7/8 + 9/0) at the same time. This will confirm your new code has been accepted. Keep in mind, in case of loss of power, the keyless entry will revert back to the original code. Best of luck.

Make sure you have brake lights.This is were the shifter solenoid gets it's signal from to get it out of gear.
One thing you can try is turn the igntion switch towards the run postion stopping just short of activating the electronics.Then try and move shifter to neutral then you can start it and out it into gear so you can drive it to get it fixed.
