Question about 1990 Lincoln Mark VII

1 Answer

This beautifully kept 1990 Mark Vll LSC has only 44,000 miles on it. After avoiding an accident and slamming the brakes experiencing great ABS performance, I notice third gear in regular drive is out. When the shifting takes place, it is third gear that will not engage to let the engine rev with no traction. Help! Also, the airbag light flashes and won't go off. Any fuses blown causing all this? Hopefully ?

HI, there isn't a fuse that can cause your 3rd gear failure and since driving it like this will only cause more damage to the transmission, and the Airbag light is telling you the system is not working. I strongly recommend you take to your service center. Glad your ABS did its job.

I have a 1998 Monte Carlos. I had to slam on the brakes and.now the ABS light and brake lights are on. What could it be. They were fine before I had to slam on my brakes to avoid a car in front if me.


You have a brake fluid pump on board that over rides high pressure to keep the wheels from locking up by openning a bypass valve. If you can lock up the wheels by hitting the brakes hard the valve is stuck :( very costly. If they dont lock its electrical if they do you just wont have ABS. This is something that was passed on to me so i drove without ABS car stopped fine.

I own a 1990 lincoln mark 7 LSC. My radio ( am- fm cassette ) is dead I'm loking for a factory am-fm cd radio or a replacement that when installed looks close to factory any suggestions?


Hi!!
Your best bet is getting a replacement from your local Junk Yard, this way you won't have to make any adjustments to the wiring since the plugs will be the same.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

I have 1990 lsc and i just put a new battery in it and now it is dead . does it have a dead short


If nothings is staying on and the batt still goes dead just sitting. pull the abs fuse, these sys are a problem. the abs pumps stay on and kill the batt. you should here a vib by the master cyc. and you might have a abs light on. remember when you pull the fuse the abs sys will not be working , you will have brakes just not abs. one part to fix it costs around 200.00 dollars the other part is around 1200.00. hope this helps

Abs brake light on, brake light too, hard pedal, new pads and good rotors, no pressure to rear calipers? Fluid level went low, somewhere, than came back, overflowing after filling. No body can find parts...


actually you may not need to replace any parts. from what you are explaining on the vehicle you have a air lock in your brake lines. try and bleed the brakes again starting from the rear passenger than the drivers passenger than the passengers front and last the drivers front. than disconnect the negative battery cable for about 5 min to reset the lights and see what happens. please let me know if you need more assistance with this problem.
please do not forget to rate and comment about your expereince with fixya today.

ABS light and Traction control light stay on. Vehicle brakes ok, but pedal feels "grindy" intermittently when braking


That "grindy" feeling is when the ABS kicks in. It's only suppose to activate when you slam on the brakes and the wheels would normally lock. Instead, ABS will very quickly pump the brakes on and off, to prevent the wheels from locking (making a giant skid mark) and stopping the car more effectively. Generally this only happens if you slam on the brakes or loose traction due to rain or snow while braking. If this is happening often and the brake light is on, on the dash, then you need to get this checked out by a qualified mechanic ASAP.

Is a computer needed to bleed brake system?


bleed the brakes the easy way is to have two peoples one to pump the brake pedal and the other one is to open the bleeder use the driver side front wheel it close to the master cylinder and you could get a brake bleeder and do it by yourself.

Brakes seem to lock up when roads are wet


First of all if your problem is only when it rains, get some tires for wet weather driving. Most cars have anti lock brakes now so you shouldnt have problems sliding to far. Your probably following to close to the car ahead of you. Give it the 2 sec rule. Put the car 2 sec in front of you. Another thing, Kia Rio's are light weight cars so if you slam on the brakes their is not a lot of weight on those tires to stop the car on a dime.
