Disconnect your battery cable for a few minutes and then reconnect and see if anything has reset.If not,you may need to let Ford diagnose it. don-ohio,ower of 2004 LS

Gear display data error, check traction control and fuel flow data error

CHECK THE PCM DIODE. Apparently these get loose over time.... I had the same symptoms, car would randomly not start. Drove me crazy for months. Then one day I was pulling the relays in and out and noticed the PCM Diode suddenly made a CLICK when I pushed it down. Apparently it was creeping out of it's socket over the years. All I had to do was push it back in, and voila! problem went away!!

Btw, in my car, Lincoln Continental 1999, the diode is to the left of Relay 7 (PCM Relay). This solved the mysterious "GEAR DISPLAY ERROR", CHECK TRACTION CONTROL, etc., and PATS code 16.

Re: 1998 lincoln continental transmission. i just stopped for gas and when i restarted on my way, the transmssion will not shift above 2nd gear either automatically from the drive position or as i manually...

The last time I experienced this the gearbox governor gear (which are usually made of plastic had lost its drive teeth. Did you notice if the speedo still worked.
