SOURCE: Lincoln LS 2003
my etc light came on and i took to the lincoln dealer it was my fuel system and it had to be replaced for the tune of 800 dollars. after that it ran fine for about a month then i hit a hump then it went into etc mode again. i then took it back to lincoln they did not see a code or that it even went into etc mode because i cut the car off and turned it back on it ran fine but once you cut it off it resets itself it did this about 10 more times and never came back on again knock on woods no problems but it started missing and the check engine light came on it was a misfire in cylinder 4 and it replaced the spark plug myself and it has ran find ever since. I was told anytime the etc light comes on it due to fuel or transmission

the engine fail safe [limp mode] engages for or when the engine/trans senses damage or something that can cause extreme damage[ no oil pressure] the limp mode is so u can safely get off road or to a service location

I have a 2004 LS V8 & do all my own work
I can understand the battery failed as it was
more than 4 or 5 years old
The converters would have had to be damaged
in the accident if something got under the car
& damaged the exhaust pipes,no other reason
The Gas Pedal is called a Electronic Throttle
Control Module,I'm looking at my wiring diagrams
for a V6 &v8. I don't see that as an issue
The Throttle Body is almost always replaced at a dealer
& seldom an issue either. Reason --When you have a really
bad COP Ignition Coil it spikes your PCM & the signal
comes back on the TPS Sensor on the throttle body &
the pcm looses throttle plate % & starts to cut out
Bottom line ,not many people like working on Ford Products
& the dealer will really cost you dearly & with negative results.
I have seen many codes related to coils & never more than
one bad one,while it could happen
It sounds as though 80% of your issues have nothing to do
with the accident.
We own one of the most complicated vehicles out there
It has Jaguar Technolgy as well
I don't know if any testing or diagnosing was done on your car
or if what was done invloved a body shop,then off the a dealer
or local repair shop,but I don't get a warm fuzzy fealing on anything
but the battery
As long as your wrench is light you have codes to at least look at
The ETC Failsafe on the right bottom side if dash is a BAD COIL
as I explained above. You will drive up to 22 miles in hot weather
The PCM you can see & feel under & behind the glove box
To remove it you have to remove the box on pass side of engine
compartment that covers the Cabin Filter as the 2 harness connectors
ar there down low
I doubt the PCM Failed
Go to a local shop that likes lincolns & just have them find
the one bad ignition coil.
them it will only go 6 mph in failsafe. Unusable for now

V6 or V8
I have a 2004 V8 & all the manuals for 04
No one will provide you what you need
& very few people but me, even answer
Only made for 7 years & too high tech
What issues do you have?

Over heating causes it to shut down 2 cyl n run on 6 cyl to help cool it down but once that happens the best is to shut it off check the cooling system check for antifreeze make sure its full then take the ground off the battery that's in the trunk beside the spare tire n leave the postive on but take off negative n leave it off for 5 mins then hook it back on it will turn the safe mode off back to normal. That's what I did to my 04 lincoln LS v8 3.9l... hope this helps ya
