Lincoln LS owners have reported 3 problems related to traction control light on (under the traction control system category).
Took my 2002 Lincoln into dealer to see why I was smelling hot engine oil they told me the valve cover gaskets leak on both sides of engine. Asked why both the service traction control light and abs light and occasionally brake like stay on while operating the car, was told the sensor was bad and needed replaced. Upon inspection they found the transmission cooling line was leaking. My car has only approx. 80,000 miles on it. I feel that the leaking oil could cause a fire due to the gaskets leaking and what could happen if the transmission oil dumped while operating, could any of these problems cause a serious accident while operating on public highways or freeways.

While driving suddenly the abs light, traction control light and the parking brake light came on. I immediately exited the freeway and pulled into a parking area and turned the car off. After calming my 87 year old mother down I restarted the car and none of the lights came on. I proceeded to start driving my car home and again all the lights came on. I contacted the dealer where I purchased my car and spoke to the service manager who informed me that they knew of this problem with the Lincolns and that I should bring it in which
I did. I was informed that it would cost approx. $2,000. 00 to fix this problem because Lincoln only covers automobiles that are less than 10 years old or have less than 100k miles. My car has 109k but I feel that Lincoln should cover this since they have known about it long before my car had 100k miles and this is a very big safety hazard. I have taken excellent care of my car getting every oil change on time and each of the services that have been suggested. Lincoln has said they can't help me and the dealer says his hands are tied, what recourse do I have? also I have already had to have a new transmission put in my car.

Abs light, parking brake and traction control light coming on and then going off; only to reappear again. At times, brakes are not properly working. Engine light will also sometimes appear to blink when this happens. I have called the Lincoln customer service and was told that all warranties ran out at 50,000 miles so this problem will not be covered. Also am having problems with the transmission. The car has 90k miles. The transmission was slipping under 50k miles but the dealership assured me that it was not a transmission problem and they reset something to do with the computer. It has only gotten worse. I did not insist that the transmission problem be fixed while under warranty because I was trusting that the dealership folks knew what they were talking about which is a lesson for me.
