SOURCE: how to get into trunk w/o keys and trunk opener. Keys are locked in trunk and button inside car is locked.

Using your keyless entry on the keypad, press the 5 digit code to get into the door and press the 6 key immediately after. Lincoln has several codes in addition to the 5 digit keyless entry like pressing the 3 to open all the doors, the 6 for the trunk and pressing the last 2 buttons at the same time to lock the doors.

SOURCE: replace rear brake light bulb 1998 lincoln continental

pop the trunk and right behind where the lights are pull the carpet down and their will be of the following depending on the trim.

You will either see the light sockets themselves that you can twist and pull to change the bulb, or you will see the plastic nuts/screws that you can remove to remove the entire assembly in order to access the bulbs.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the screws to access the housing are located in the upper part of the trunk

Fuse number eleven keeps blowing on 1998 lincoln conttenial what works that fuse


The equipment connected with this fuse is listed as the Ignition coils, the radio interference capacitor, the PCM relay and the passive Anti-theft System Module.

I think I would replace the PCM relay as it is the only part listed which has moving parts inside. In addition, you can check if the PCM relay is the same part as the Horn relay and use the horn relay in place of the former PCM relay. If your short goes away, then you know the old PCM relay was bad.

If the fuse breaks before you crank the engine, you could disconnect the coils and see if the fuse still breaks.

The radio capacitor, you need a little better diagram to identify this wire and when disconnected, you would know if the fuse breaks or not.

If its the anti-theft, then that is more complicated to solve. Test all the other stuff first.

Please let me know what you find.

LOCATION OF TURN SIGNAL FLASHER ON A 1998 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL


It is located in the fuse panel under the dashboard on the drivers side. It will look to be about the diameter of a quarter and have 3 prongs when you pull it out. It will also be marked where it is located exactly on the underside of your fuse panel cover.

93 corolla 1.8 No start Blown ignition fuse


I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
