1996 Lincoln Continental engine shuts off

I have a 1996 Lincoln Continental. My problem is the engine shuts off, usually when going over bumps or making a hard turn. The car has been back to the mechanic many times and he cannot pin point the problem. He said he changed some relay thinking that might be the cause. The problem is difficult to reproduce, doesn't always happen. The 'Service Engine Soon' light is constantly on in the dashboard but the mechanic said this wouldn't cause the problem I am having. Something to do with the anti air pollution control. The problem sounds to me like a loose wire/bad connection somewhere, but this is just a guess. I am at my wits end and hope you can provide an answer.
Thank you.

Replace inertia switch in trunk first. It is designed to shut off fuel pump in an accident. It may be too sensitive.

Other possibility is the fuel pump relay near the engine computer.

Last is computer power relay since it powers the computer, and the computer operates the fuel pump relay.

report back please.

Code po412 for a 1996 lincoln continental


not a big deal to have MIL light on. P0412 is secondary air injection valve switching A circuit.
Try this first. Disconnect battery for 1/2 hour. then reconnect and drive car for 10 miles so computer can relearn engine controls. may run rough during this time. See if that turns light off.
