sounds like your switch contacts are shorted closed.. try disconnecting the switch for inspection and use a volt ohm meter to inspect switch across contacts...

That is a BSC, or blower speed controller. This is a very common concern, in most cases if you simply wiggle the harness the controller will start to work.
This should be located on the a/c case under the hood below the heater hoses.

When the theft light blinks fast when trying to start the car, check if this occurs; if yes, then the car is in theft mode. I do strongly believe the next step is to program the keys. If the PCM was bad, the light would be steady when trying to start which indicates the PATS system is working correctly.

If it only does it when it sat a day or so, I would
lean toward fuel pump issues

That is a thin line to come back here & have to support
that statement.

I would be up on my spark plugs,cleaning maf sensor, replacing
O2 Sensors etc,only when they are due, based on time & mileage

eg: get the basics out of the way first.

An old battery can do that also

You say cranks fine after initial crank
Some people refer to cranking ,as meaning a no start
condition. Cranking has little to do with starting

The more I read your question the similar it is to others

You don't have a problem with the car starting at all

You have a problem with the starter turning over the engine

Help me out here

Not getting past 45mph, is almost a damaged exhaust converter,
that has broken down inside & is clogged

That should not happen in ten years,so you have had misfires
or rich fuel conditions over the years, that ruined it

Next would be a totally bocked gas filter
Not as likely, if it were changed ever 3 to 5 years, it should be okey

The transmissiom issues I will only say due to having once owned
a trans shop & the 10 years on the car.
Your are most likely only going to fix that, by pulling it out & rebuilding it


Because no one ever changes trans & include power steering fluid,
every 3 years & not over 30,000 miles

Not changing trans fluid is a death sentence

What you need to do first is to control the light from the switch to see if it is set to off or door,if it is door,it might not go off immediately until you start the car.If it is set on off then there might be an electrical problem and you might have to get an expert to fix it for you.

faulty head light switch ll is not working

2001 Lincoln... | Answered on Jul 26, 2011

There is a fuel pump relay and a fuse...In the under-hood fuse box, fuse #22 (20 amp) powers the fuel pump relay. The best method of ensuring the fuel pump is getting proper voltage is testing for power at the intertia switch (fuel cut-off in case of an accident). It is on the driver's side of the trunk behind the liner. Ground a test light and have a assistant cycle the key. It should be powered for about 3-5 seconds initially after the key is cycled to the start position.
I hope this helps.

it sounds like the track that is attached to the widow that the motor controls has come loose from the window payne. You will need to get adhesive from a parts supplier and reattach it.

Hello, This Code means the vehicle speed sensor is not putting out a signal to one of the components. The connector could be wet or corroded or the bad could just be bad.

Does this happen with the overdrive off or on? If it happens with the overdrive on, then suggest you try it without the overdrive and see if your indications change. The overdrive normally starts to operate in that range. While both are transmission problems the overdrive isn't as hard to repair.
