My 1997 ford thunderbird lx check engine light flashed on and off then it stayed on


If a problem happens 3 times in a row the engine light will come on. Then the code must be read in order to find out what needs to be fixed. Auto Zone will read the code for you at no charge, if you don't have a reader.

How do you set the service engine soon light on a 97 Ford Thunderbird?


The light can only be reset with a OBD2 Diagnostic tool. You can run by your local Advance Auto/Autozone and they will do that for you usually free of charge.
Hope this helps

Check engine light came on, fault is for the Cam shaft position sensor. I changed the sensor. Didn't work. I changed the whole synchronizer assembly. Didn’t work. I checked the wiring, all good continuity...


OK, on a 1998 Ford Taurus have a service engine soon light. Scanning it said the Camshaft Sensor circuit was bad. So I replaced the camshaft sensor. Cleared the code and it came back.

In the winter time it comes, and in the summer time it goes away (or after a week or so of warm weather).

I think it's a wiring problem or a bad calibration of distance to the reluctor ring.

I think your problem on the 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX is the same thing.

Good luck on the repair.

Service Engine Soon light reset.


The Service Engine Soon light comes only when the engine computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, it is not related to the oil change, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

I need a diagram showing which plug wires go to which cylindersa.


My apologies for the delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.


I do not know if you have the 3.8L (6-Cyl) or the 4.6L (8-Cyl) Engine, however I have included the information on the 3.8L and a Link for the 4.6L. I am pretty sure your engine is the 4.6L based on the LX Model.

For the 3.8L:
Cylinders:
(back of engine
3----------6
2----------5
1----------4
(front of engine)
Ignition Connections:
(back)
1----2----3
5----6----4
(front)

Click on the following Link for the 4.6L:

Let me know if this helped....
