You need to replace the scil module, ie steering column ignition lighting module... also check all the fuese to the scil, in the inside fuse panel there are multiple fuses that control the scil and the lights. the response you got above is not from a lincoln mar viii owner, the scil is a common problem

Inspect all of the sockets that the bulbs plug into. you may have a short in some of them. they can get hot and melt the plastic sockets. causing the bulbs not to work. or try replacing the wiring harness for all the rear lights. i found one in the junkyard for my cougar. and it works fine now, good luck

Left brake light and directional doesn't work


Check the bulbs first. If your front signal is on, then your electrical is working, and the problem is in the bulb. If not, check fuses! DO NOT PUT A LARGER FUSE IN THE FUSE PANEL THAN IS RECOMMENDED!!

Turn signal tail lights and BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING


It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its blown brake light bulb. First check and confirm brake light lamp is working and that's not the case.

For turn signal not working it can be faulty turn signal switch or its issue with wiring:----

Rear tail light won't light up


You might have a bad wire. If it was both tail lights, could be your tail lamp fuse or brake switch.

My 1997 Lincoln Mark 8 will not shift into gear.


it may be a shifter linkage issue. There is an interlock to prevent the car from bouncing out of park into reverse and if the linkage is not correctly adjusted, then it locks up.
