Recently I took my 99 Lincoln Towncar for an oil change at Express now my check trac and abs light comes sometimes when driving could this be the reason?

Depends. You would need to get the abs system checked for trouble codes to proceed. Traction control and ABS share components.

2001 Lincoln LS V8 Advance Trac sensors replaced, but amber light on dashboard will not quit flashing. Shop cleared the codes when they replaced the sensor. The

The repair shop did not make the repair necessary

There are no advance trac sensors

Advance Trac is an add on option when new,
to the ABS Braking system

Even if the mil lamp is cleared, there will be codes
there when you access with a professional scanner,
since you have the amber lamp on

The only sensors are wheel speed sensors

My 1998 towncar has an ABS,check trac and trac off light on. What sensors should I check because the air ride is fine and the brakes are fine. I travel on the inerstate 5 days a week abt 30 miles round...

Hello Leigha.

The problems you are describing are related to wheel speed sensors.
Because ABS and traction control depend on the input from the speed sensors from each of the wheels.
Most often when this problem occurs it will be one of the sensors, a bad connector or a broken wire in the harness to the sensors.
The easiest way to determine what the problem is, is to have the ABS system scanned for the code, or codes that have turned on the warning lights.
Make sure that whatever service center you take it to is experienced with such problems and has the proper scanning equipment to find the problem.
Your air suspension is not affected by this, they are separate systems.

If you would like further assistance regarding your problem please ask me in comments.
Thank you for using FixYa.

ABS/traction control 1998 lincoln towncar

sounds like the brake pads may be metal to metal, that could be the noise problem, but until u have the system tested for the trouble code that is setin the ABS modules memory when the light comes on you are guessing, the Dealer is the only one in most cases that has the scan tool to check ABS trouble codes.

Open the hood and make sure the car and the lights are off.
Remove the plastic protective cover.There are 3 knobs,turn halfway and pull.Put aside and out of the way.
Remove the three pins that are holding the light assembly in place.These are flat rods with a little bend at the end.
Twist and un-plug the lights,now you can remove the whole lens.
The light bulbs can also be removed and replaced from this point.
Make sure all the bulbs are working before you put it back together.
