Question about 2004 Lincoln Town Car
After normal engine start up and driving for several minutes, the instrument cluster (right side - fuel econ, dist to empty, etc) flashes/flutters on/off and dims/brighens intermitantly, and then usually locks up in one display mode or goes blank. It then usually resumes normal operation after a few minutes, but can repeat the above malfunction later on for no apparent reason. The prior disabling problem with parking assist problem has not changed and the left side cluster display appears to operate normally. Any ideas as to cause and suggested fix?

I had to replace 4 different coils on my '02 LS before it finally stopped misfiring. After one code and coil replaced it would go to the next one. I had to replace them in this order, 2,3,7,8
When # 7 was misfiring it wouldn't even pull a code all of the time, the check engine light would come on one day then go off the next, really strange.

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.

There are five trip computer displays which may be stepped through by pushing the MODE button. The information will appear in the following order:
D AVG ECON (Average Fuel Economy): This shows the average fuel economy since the last reset.
D INST ECON (Instantaneous Fuel Economy): This shows fuel economy for the most recent second of driving.
D RANGE (Trip Range): This shows the estimated distance that can be traveled with the remaining fuel. The fuel economy used to calculate range is based on the last few hours of driving. When in a low fuel condition, LO is displayed.
D FUEL USED (Trip Fuel Used): This shows the accumulated fuel used since the last reset.
D AVG SPEED (Average Speed): This shows the average speed since the last reset.
