This is one you should take to a qualified repair shop ! The electronics involved , a factory scan tool needs to be hooked up to the vehicle !
Instrument Cluster-Electronic Inspection and Verification

  1. Verify the customer's concern by operating the instrument cluster (10849) to duplicate the condition and by observing the indicators and gauges to determine if they are operating properly with the ignition switch:
    • in RUN with the engine OFF
    • in START before the ignition switch is released
    • in RUN with the engine running
  1. Inspect to determine if any of the following mechanical or electrical concerns apply:


    VISUAL INSPECTION CHART Mechanical Electrical
    • Damaged fuel tank.
    • Engine coolant level.
    • Engine oil level.
    • Washer fluid level.
    • Accessory drive belt.
    • Fuse Junction Panel Fuse:
      26 (10A), 28 (10A), 5 (10A).
    • Circuit wiring.
    • Switches or sensors.
    • Stuck fluid level sensor.
  1. If the inspection reveals an obvious concern that is readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with inspection and verification.
  1. If the concern remains after inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the virtual image instrument cluster , GO to Pinpoint Test C . If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the lighting control module, GO to Pinpoint Test D .
    If the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test is passed for the virtual image instrument cluster and lighting control module(s), retrieve continuous DTCs and execute Self Test Diagnostics for the virtual image instrument cluster and lighting control module(s) to retrieve current DTCs.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved for the virtual image instrument cluster, go to the Virtual Image Cluster (VIC) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics. If DTCs are retrieved for the lighting control module, go to the Lighting Control Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the virtual image instrument cluster cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test C . If the Refer Lighting Control Module cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test D .
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
It's more then likely you need a new instrument cluster ,but you need to have it checked for any codes stored ! A obd2 code reader won't do it ! factory scan tool !
It's

I have a 1997 Lincoln continental . Was parked for several days and would not start afterwards. It has always been good but seems to lack spark - fuel pump seems fine


If its been more than 75000 since your last tune up I would get one. Plugs and wires do not last over that amount of miles causing the engine to run very bad or just won't start

1995 lincoln continental. Sitting at stop light, abs light comes on, drove home about 5 miles and abs lignt on and off the whole time. parked car and now wont start. just clicks. any suggestions?


Anytime a starter clicks instead of turning over, you should suspect your battery is weak. Try to get a jump start and take the car to an auto parts store. Most of them will do bettery and alternator checks for no charge.

Most likely a motor mount causing the "thunk". This will only get worse until its taken care of. The rubber bushing around the mount itself wears with age. Really couldn't tell you about the check steering assist apart from checking the power steering fluid level. Good luck on your problem.
