SOURCE: 1991 Lincoln Towncar anti brake lock light stays on.

It's very possible you have a faulty wheel sensor. Look behind each wheel. Around the center you can see a wire harness attached. Check each wire harness for broken wires. I don't think this car has a self test to tell you which wheel has the problem. You will probably have to take it to the dealer and let them tell you.
When the antilock light comes on your cars system is telling you of a problem and also that you have standard brakes now and no antilock.
You can most probably drive normally as long as the system is staying full of brake fluid.

Brake Light. Make sure you are not driving with hand brake on. Check brake-fluid level. Top off brake fluid if low and make appointment to check brakes. Driving with brake light can be dangerous; deal with this soon. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Indicates either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid and make appointment to get brakes checked. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
Oil Light. Either engine is very low on oil or there is no oil pressure. Pull over and turn off engine immediately. Check oil level and add oil if low. Turn engine back on to see if light has gone off. If oil light is still on, bad oil pump (no oil pressure) is likely. Call tow truck.
Check Engine Light. Car's computer senses engine problem. Difference in performance may not be noticeable, but make appointment to have car diagnosed. This usually cost around $65-$75 to do. OK to drive. If problem is serious, computer may switch to limp-home (low-power) mode and you won't have option of waiting to bring car into shop.
Air Bag Light. Get air bags checked. Problem could prevent them from activating in accident. OK to drive, but not safe in accident.
Battery Charge Light. Alternator is not charging. OK to drive, but turn off any unneeded electrical devices (radio, heater, defroster) and avoid starting engine more than necessary. Bring car into shop soon to avoid getting stranded. When alternator is not charging, battery loses charge and car stops working.
Emissions Lights (O2 sensor, EGR, check emissions). Depending on car model, these lights may indicate problem with emissions sensor or may light up at certain mileage, usually 60,000 miles (100,000 km). Get sensors checked. OK to drive. If problem exists, car might get poor gas mileage.

Parking Brake and Anti-Lock Lights Don't turn off


When you release the parking brake (while keeping the handle pulled) reach down or use your foot and pull the parking brake pedal up . If the light goes off, the switch needs adjustment

Sounds like a brake light. Check your brake fluid and fill to the correct level if low then see if it goes out.

The Brake light says "BRAKE" is the Brake System Warning Light: "This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake application. If the brake light turns on, it may indicate that the parking brake is applied, that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system (if equipped)."

Another is the Anti-Lock Brake System Light: "This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System. The light will turn on when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position and may stay on for as long as four seconds. If the ABS light remains on or turns on while driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is required. However, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally if the BRAKE warning light is not on."

It could also be the Tire Pressure Monitoring light. Check the brake fluid first and see if that fixes it.

The service engine soon light is on. The check engine light had come on several times the day before. The check fluid light had come on & went off. Added 2 qts. of oil to the engine and it is fine....


Have the computer scanned if you want a quick scan have Auto Zone or the like scan it for free , they also will give you a printout of the problem code, if any, that may be stored in the computer system.
Trans. fluid is only checked on a running in park warm engine, if it is not running the fluid will read too high on the stick showing an overfilled condition, use only recommended fluid, should have the type requirements stamped on the transmision dip stick.
When filling do it slowly and add only half a quart at a time checking the level each time as to not over fill.
The trans. fluid and filter should be changed every 30,000 miles as preventive maintenance proceedures.
Hope this helps, good luck!!

What does the anti lock light on the dash mean?


The anti-lock light is indicating that your anti-lock brake system has a problem. Check fluid level. Could be a sensor, time for brake service etc, but I wouldn't wait too long to have it checked, just in case something serious. Anti-lock brake problems may cause a wheel or more, or all, to lock up in a panic stop situation. When was last service on brakes done?
