What make's you think it's something that needs to be replaced ?
C1998 Module Calibration Not Complete Stability Assist Module REFER to Section 206-09 .
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) With Traction Control and Stability Assist
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) with Traction Control Stability Assist consists of these additional components:
  • Yaw rate sensor (contains the accelerometer(s) and is also known as the Sensor cluster)
  • Steering wheel rotation sensor
  • Active brake booster
    • master cylinder pressure sensor
    • pedal travel sensor
    • brake pedal force switch
The front wheel speed sensor rings are integral to the front hub and bearing assemblies. Refer to Section 204-01 .
The rear wheel speed sensor rings are integral to the rear halfshaft. Refer to Section 205-05 .
The module needs programming , dealer .
Principles of Operation
Some modules must be programmed as part of the repair procedure. If this procedure is not followed, the module does not function correctly and may set a number of diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), including B2477 or P1639, which indicate that necessary data has not been programmed into the module.
NOTE: The vehicle must be stationary and level, with all accessories off, while configuring modules.
Modules that need programming should not be exchanged between vehicles. In most cases the parameter values or settings are unique to that vehicle, and if not set correctly, cause concerns or faults.
The diagnostic tool automatically attempts to retrieve the module configuration information from all modules and from a backup location in the powertrain control module (PCM) when vehicle ID is carried out. If the module and the PCM do not contain correct information, the diagnostic tool either requests As-Built data or displays a list of items that are needed to be manually configured. The diagnostic tool programs the module based on the data entered.
For additional diagnostic tool programming procedures, refer to Programmable Module Installation in this section.
There are 3 different methods that are used for module programming:
  • programmable module installation (PMI)
  • calibration update
  • programmable parameters
Some modules do not support all 3 methods.
Definition of Terms
Programmable Module Installation (PMI) The PMI method is used when a new programmable module is installed on the vehicle. It is no longer necessary to command the diagnostic tool to gather module option content from the old module. The diagnostic tool automatically obtains any available module option content information from the old module during the vehicle ID routine that runs when the diagnostic tool is initially connected to the vehicle. It is important that the diagnostic tool is connected to the vehicle and allowed to identify the vehicle and obtain configuration data prior to any module removal.
If a module that has been modified using programmable parameters needs to be installed, the PMI procedure maintains the parameters in their altered state if the diagnostic tool is able to communicate with the old module during vehicle ID. Otherwise, you may need to use programmable parameters to return parameters to the altered state.
Calibration Update Some modules are designed to be flashed or reflashed with completely new software packages. This process of reflashing the module is a calibration update.
A calibration update should be carried out only upon notification (such as a Technical Service Bulletin [TSB]). Also, if a module sets DTC U2050, this indicates no application is present and reflashing of the software application is required. If a module sets DTC U2051, this indicates no calibration is present and reflashing of calibration is required.
Programmable Parameters These are options contained within the existing software. These include items such as tire size, customer preference items, and anti-theft options. The current settings are downloaded from an existing module then uploaded to a new module. They can also be configured using the diagnostic tool. Programming parameters is different from updating calibrations as no software is changed, only the options already contained in the software.
Vehicle Identification (VID) Block Some PCMs contain a memory area called a VID block.
The PCM VID block may contain the factory settings for the configurable modules unless the PCM is flashed with a new calibration, in which case some PCM parameters may be modified.
As-Built Data Center The As-Built Data Center maintains a record of the vehicle configuration in a database. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is necessary to obtain this information. The As-Built Data Center records the applicable module configurations stored in each module before the vehicle leaves the factory. The As-Built Data Center data always reflects the original build of the vehicle as it left the factory. Contact the As-Built Data Center only when directed to do so by the diagnostic tool.

It can be accessed with a scanner through the vehicle BCM.

That would be the piece that would normally be the distributor cap on earlier vehicles. It has some wires that plug into the side of it, a square style clip on plug.

H, yiour vehicle has no transmission dip stick, here is the procedure from Lincoln.

Use a OBDII scan equipment to monitor Transmission Fluid Temperature, start the vehicle and run engine at idle until fluid temperature is between 80° to 120° F (27° to 47°C). Shift through gears slowly stopping in each gear allowing it to engage. Put in PARK position. With engine running put vehicle up on hoist level as possible. Hold the larger drain plug with a wrench and remove the small center plug. Allow the fluid to drain, making sure that the fluid is between 80° to 120° F (27° to 47°C). If the fluid comes out as a thin stream or drip, the fluid is at the correct level. Reinstall the small center plug and tighten to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).

You will need a special fitting available from Lincoln and screw it into where the fluid level indicator was. Add new transmission fluid to a suction gun, attach the gun to the fitting and add fluid in 1/2 pint increments, wait one minute, if the fluid comes out in a thin stream or drips the level is correct. If not add another 1/2 pint.

There is no BODY CONTROL module,but there is a Front Electronic module FEM, and a rear electronic module,REM (not the rock group,LOL!).
The FEM is located behind the driver's kick panel and the FEM is located on the right side down in the trunk.
The REM controls: Rear windows, , all rear lights, trunk opening, fuel door release, rear window defrost grid, trunk ajar switch, front passenger door lock, , front passenger door lock switch,rear door locks, trunk light, fuel pump, fuel level senders, antenna booster.

Hope this helps? don-ohio (:^)

do a fuel pressure test. Sounds like a weak pump or faulty fuel pressure regulator.
