Just press the button to reset it. Per your owner manual. Should only trip in an accident.

WHen you turn on the key, can you hear the fuel pump run for 5 seconds. The pump is in the fuel tank. listen there while someone turns the key on. report back.

My 1980 Town Car had the switch located in the trunk, with the lid open (Duh) look for a hole just above the left wheel well, inside there was a small push button switch that would click when pressed, my town car tripped this switch for no apparent reason from time to time.

I have a 1995 contienntal and the engine turns over but it giving a 1234 fault code on an engine scanner. This is suppose to be a fuel pump module which has already been replaced. Any ideas

Check the fuel shut off switch in the trunk, a faulty switch can bring this code up even if your fuel pump has been replaced. Its located in the trunk.

1999 lincoln fuel pump

My fuel pump on my 1998 Lincoln Continental has no power. I checked the fuse it is good. I checked the fuel shutoff switch it was fine. I have traced the wire from the fuel shutoff switch to the fuel module driver in the trunk. The wire has power. I have also traced the positve wire from the fuel pump to the fuel driver on a different terminal, this wire has no power from the pump. I also changed the fuel driver, the low fuel pressure switch, the alternator, and battery.does anyone have any suggestion's?
