Question about 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII
Your car is equipped with sensors, that monitor
different functions of the drivetrain, usualy emissions
related. When one of these sensors detects a malfunction, it sends a signal to the cars computer
that in turn sends a signal to you via the check engine light. The computer stores these codes until
the problem is fixed. But the comp. retains the codes
until cleared. If you clear the code with an obdII scanner, the inspection computer will detect this and
reject it. To keep people from scaming the system.
A drive reset is to drive the car about 100 miles I
believe. To make sure the problem has been repaired
The computer will now reset itself.
I hope this helps. Good luck.
