Hello, in regards to your problem, I believe the switch in the trunk is for disabling the Air suspension system, but I could be wrong, I don't have schematics in front of me. If nothing works in your car, at all, such as lights, or any of the interior systems. Sounds like you have a wiring issue, with you battery terminals, to and from the unit. If every thing in your interior works fine, but your engine does not start, then the problem could be your PCM relay, Anti-them relay, starter interrupt relay, starter relay, or fuel pump relay, in that order, I believe. If this does not answer your problem, please provide some more details for your situation. Thank you, Alfredo

There is a switch in the trunk, drivers side, near the ride control on/off switch. It's a small round red button, and, I believe that it needs to be out for the fuel pump to be on, but you can try it both ways...

I suspect there is a problem with the turn signal/ hazard switch. turn the turn signal on left or right, if it doesn't flash, grip the hazard button and gently wiggle it around, if the signals start flashing, replace the turn signal switch. The Brake lights are wired through the turn signal switch, if the 3rd brake light works, the brake switch is OK. I don't think it has anything to do with the anti theft system (at this time)

Where can you find the fuel relay switch for a 1996 lincoln continental


Is this for a 1992 or 1996 Continental? the 96' is a different platform all together. but in the 88-94 model, it is located on the firewall, inside the engine bay. Just look for two relays sort-of in the middle of that back firewall. The fuel relay will have the largest wire going to it. It will be probably be Yellow with a pink strip, or visa-versa. Just look for the largest wire going to that particular relay, and that is the fuel relay. There are no fuses or other connections between that relay, and the fuel pump. It is a straight run, from there. It is also, NOT labeled, nor does the relay have any markings on it, at least mine did not have any.

Interior light will not go off


one of the door switches is sticking take one out at a time normally start with the driver side disconnect the battery on the negative side and then take the switch out and put a little oil ( WD-40 or some oil similar to that) because the switches could be rusty or bad causing this problem but you can take out the dome light bulb until you can get the problem fixed

1990 Lincoln-Battery drained while turned off sitting


If you are jumpering the starter, then the battery is not being drained, the starter may have a bad solenoid.
If the problem still is a dead short, a painstaking troubleshooting is required.
Remove one fuse at a time, check for voltage drop, and see which one is the culprit. Then you woud have to locate each item on that circuit and trace the wires for one that is broken, or pinched & contacting ground.
Also, check at night or in a dark garage, as trunk, door, or hood pin switches may be stuck in the open position - and will keep the lights on.

Interesting note - your having to jumper the solenoid on the starter indicates a possible worn/damaged ignition tumbler. If your tumbler is not seating on the OFF detent, your ACC may still be left on even with the key out of the ignition.
