Question about Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

Computer dispalay stops working.

When I hit a bump the computer display starts displaying symbols and other unreadable stuff. Then it will not respond to the buttons. Also the needles to all the other gages disappear. Sometimes I can tap on the dash and it'll start working again.

I'm not sure of the year but I would say its a loose connection possibly the one to the dash cluster. I'm assuming after you park thenm start again the computer works ok until the next bump

2006 maxima - dash &a/c controls quit after bump in road. sometimes they return. last time wife was driving - saw smoke & did not start working again. smoke came from behind display in center...

I too had an issue with the dash controls, cruise ctrl, no speedometer. It happened all of a sudden on way back from Chicago. I think you may have the same issue. I put some change on the console in front of the display, which pretty much screams "PLACE STUFF HERE". Guess what, DON"T DO THAT!!!!. I had a dime lose it's way into the back of the display and shorted the whole Freakin thing out. $650 to repair.
