Question about 1994 Lincoln Continental

Open Question

1994 lincoln continental, lots of issues and beeping noises

I don't know diddly squat about cars, so here goes, every time the car gets started, something likes to beep at us, it'll go on for a while, then start again later at random moments ( at least it feels like it). also, the gauges or digital instrument panel ( if thats what you call it, where the speedometer, gas, and mileage stuff goes), the lights keep going out, and I don't think they are measuring right because when we put gas in the car, the gas doesn't show up, it just stays at E or whatever it was at before, or it goes all the way up, then back down, i don't know whats wrong, I just know that something is wrong, please help me!!!

Yes the crankshaft position sensor would cause this and is a common problem. To tell if this is what is causing the concern when you turn the ignition switch on the check engine light should come on.When you go to the start position while engine is cranking it should go out for a few seconds and still while cranking it should come back on(all of this usually takes about 10secs).If it come back on while cranking the the computer sees the signal from the sensor,if it does not come back on after 10 secs of cranking then it does not see it and this will be your problem.
Now it could be just a connector problem or the sensor itself could be bad.You can try and unplug it and plug it back up and see if it will start. If this is your concern I would recommend replacing the connector and sensor. It will be located next to the crankshaft pulley on the engine.

SOURCE: 2002 Lincoln LS overheating

The cooling fan on the LS-V8 is hydraulic yes. But it also has a pressure switch on the pump that drives the fan. It is controlled by the temperature sensor. All these things must be taken into account. But the whining sound my lead me to believe that the pump is either low on fluid or is wearing out. The fluid the fan pump uses is the same as the power steering pump container so check it first. The same thing happened to my wife's Lincoln. I replaced the fan as well because everybody told me to do that but it didn't work. I found out that the fan is just a hydraulic motor in reverse it only spins as fast as the pump makes it spin and that is controlled by the temp. sensors. When the engine get's hotter the pressure goes up and the fan spins faster. This adds more power to the engine when it's running cooler because the fan doesn't have to spin at max speed. So good luck. I hope this has solved your problem.

SOURCE: Why does my instrument cluster black out a lot?

Having the same problem with my 2001 Merc Cougar, When does it black out? While reving or randomly? Mine is while heavy accelerating. Could be over voltage at the charging system (alternator or regulator) or internal in the cluster. Get the alternator and batt tested first, ask for a load test, then try the cluster next.

What is A service code

I don't know what a service code is on your truck, but on my Ford Ranger, it's a series of beeps that I get when I first start the engine. It something isn't working right, the seatbelt minder beeper starts off with a series of beeps that indicate what's wrong. It might be something like 4 beeps, or three long beeps and two short ones. After that , it goes into the 24 beeps...pause...24 beeps that indicate that I don't have my seatbelt fastened.
On your truck, it might be different. It might be a series of flashing LED lights or something. Check your User's Manual.
Also, you can always to to Advance Auto Parts and they'll hook it up to a handheld diagnostic indicator for free.

1994 continental. air ride. compressor starts and rear starts to lift, but after 3-4 mins. i get a beep and light on dash says ride control and then she squats in the rear?

When I got my 1994 Continental, it had already been converted back to a coil-spring suspension, and the air-ride system was GONE. You will find that is the case with most of the ones that are still on the road. The air-ride system turned out to be an unreliable, trouble-prone, nightmare for most owners....and it was cheaper to scrap it and go back to after-market coils, than what it was to have a Lincoln dealer fix it. Looks like you're destined to join the club....If you decide you want to have it fixed, and make the car driveable, be prepared to PAY for it.

2001 Lexus LS430. when I start the car most times it's fine, but when I take off from Park to Drive the SKID CONTROL Light comes on and beeps and the vehicle starts to brake on it own (Quiet Freak

You must have the dealer scan the system with a special tool to see what is causing this unwanted activation of the vehicle stability control system.

Car is overheating

I'm wondering if perhaps your belt is slipping. That would cause both the over heating and dead battery issues. Look for shiny spots on the belt and sections of missing "teeth" in the serpentine belt. Also be sure the belt tensioner is keeping the belt tight. You may also have failed bearings in a idler pulley. Be sure to spend the extra couple of dollars for a good replacement belt. Cheap belts tend to fail leading to problems just like this. Please let me know how you make out and if you have any more questions. Of course there are a lot of other potentials but this one gets both at once. Thanks and good luck!

Car beeping at me. (not the horn)

Hi Laura,, You'll need to take the vehicle and have a diagnostic scan carried out. The warning is because something is wrong and if it is something that is not obvious, you need to find out what is being reported. Regards John

I have a jaguar 2.5l awd - cannot lock the doors by using the key fob i have to put the key in the door and lock them manually, however the key will open them by pressing the key fob anybody got ideas ??

If the car goes "beep beep" when you try to lock the doors something is still open.
Sounds like a defective keyfob try a new battery, try your spare if you have one.
If you don't have a spare you should get one anyway.
You can match your new keyfob to the car by following instructions here:=

Hi, I've just bought the Acuar Tl 2006 with Navi. I don't know how to pair my phone with handsfreelink. Thx Rafael

Check the left cluster of four buttons on the steering wheel, below volume controls etc. Hit the top button, you'll hear a beep, and say 'Phone Setup'. You'll be presented with a number of options for what to say next, but you'll want to hit the same button, and I believe 'Pair'.
