I think you hit status button and the information will illuminate and run thru each item. The message center will prompt to hit reset if new. Hit and hold reset of each of the item that needs attention. I will try it on my 01 and reply if anything is different. Good luck.

    My Lincoln does NOT have the 4buttons on dash above radio, thats the confusing part.

  • ctkelly444 Nov 28, 2014

    Just ran thru the procedure and the info I supplied is correct. Gotta see your dash as I have never heard of that. No button...weird.

the sump bung is usually mounted at the lowest point on the engine, on the sump, generally on the bottom os or one of the sides, the best way to see where your oil filter is, is to buy a new one then look under the vehicle.

The one charging port is at the front of the engine compartment, look around the top right side of the radiator. The other one is at the back of the AC compressor, and can be found from underneath by removing the small splash shield in the front of the drivers side wheelwell.

I have a 2001 LS Lincoln. No owners manual. The dash has a couple of codes on an led type screen for "change AC filter" and "change oil" messages. I did the work but the messages still...


Look for the Information Center panel above the Audio controls.. There should be 4 buttons labeled Fuel, Setup, Reset, and Status. With the engine running, press the Status button until the change oil required message appears, then press and hold the reset button until the message appears that says oil life restored to 100%. Do the same for the a/c filter.
