You can purchase a OBD-II reader and clearer from Harbor Freight for about $40. DO NOT drive your vehicle with any OBD-II reader plugged in, this can cause computer failure in some vehicles.

You have OBDII system and must use a reader on this system. There is no way to "jump" a conection to get the codes.

2003 LINCOLN TOWN CAR WONT START, HOW DO I DEACTIVATE SECURITY SYSTEM


When you turn the key to run or start is the theft light on or flashing ? Sorry but their is no deactivating , it's software programmed into the vehicle control systems . The dealer couldn't even do that with a factory scan tool . You need to see what DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes are stored , diagnose the problem and fix it .

Is there a way to check the engine code manually in a 1997 lincoln town car?


Go to advance auto parts, wait around until a salesman has some time. He will put their code reader on it for free. He is not a mechanic however, so knowing the codes will not move you forward much. A dealer will charge you about a hundred bucks for their computer diagnosis, and you will know what is wrong and how much to fix. Then you can make the call about fixing it yourself or paying someone.
Once you have replaced a few parts that do not fix the problem, it suddenly seems to make more sense to find out what is wrong with it from someone who knows what they are doing even if you have to pay some money.

I need the unlock code for my 1996 Lincoln Contenental. I locked my keys in the car and cannot get ahold of the previous owners.


start by contacting a dealer with proof of ownership in your hand. they will put you in contact with a factory tech rep. a prior owner is going to do you no good.

Warning trac light on


the 1st thing u need to do is have the system tested for trouble codes, otherwise u have no logical starting point for the repair, u will need to have the Ford or Lincoln dealer do this test, then based on the code u can most likely replace the defective part(s) yourself..
