Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental

2 Answers

1997 Lincoln Continental T/C Active comes on at about 25mph everytime you slow down below say 10mph and accelerate up to 25mph. I can disable it with the switch although I would like it to work properly.

T/C this is the traction control, this is happening because there is a problem, the most common reason would be a bad wheel speed sensor, there are sensors on each wheel that tell the computer how fast the whells are spinning, the speed of each wheel, the computer is always checking the speed and if one wheel speed if slowwer or faster than another then the compuetr activates the traction control, this then controls the speed so that the cars wheels are all at the same speed. If the computer thinks that one wheel is slower than the others then it will slow down acceleration so all wheels spin the same and if theres a bad wheel sensor giving a false signal then the computer thinks that wheel is slipping or locking up and inturn it fixs the problem. the first step would be to have the compuetr scanned to see where the problem is, for example it may a have a code that says left front speed sensor circuit, it may also not have a code all depending on the problem and how bad a sensor is, it may just think the wheel is spinning out or locking up, hope this is helpful good luck.

You need one or more wheel sensors, at least one is giving a false reading.

My lincoln shakes like a vibration when driving and slowing down could that be my transmission


I doubt it.
Could be something with one of the axles, but usually its a wheel or a miss in the engine.

It likely has a slow leak in the suspension bags. Start the engine and let it idle. The compressor should come on and the car should level. If it does it again you might have to replace the rear struts. Expensive. about 1000. Or you can convert it to springs.

Backing up grinds, go forward grinds but stops grinding at 10mph


Check your brake pads and rotors, if the grinding sound is more obvious when you brake, the pads are gone and it's iron against iron.

Most likely a motor mount causing the "thunk". This will only get worse until its taken care of. The rubber bushing around the mount itself wears with age. Really couldn't tell you about the check steering assist apart from checking the power steering fluid level. Good luck on your problem.

I have a 1997 Lincoln Continental with traction control problems


the 97 continental has the button on the left side of the steering wheel which turns the trac control on and off.

If the button doesn't work then all you can do is either take out the fuse for it or get it fixed so the button does engage/disengage it...
