Lincoln Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist
you need a code reader that will read abs codes. a parts store will do this for you for free. once we have the code. we can narrow down the area of failure
ok, call another parts store to be sure they can scan the abs system
anything we talk about is a guess until we have an area of failure
I can help but you need to provide the information for us to help
have a good day
The ABS system is a highly sophisticated system, that when it malfunctions to this degree and sends the computer into fail safe mode causing the car to go into limp mode, the possibilities are endless, a major malfunction of the engine , an internal failure in the transmission, a serious brake related issue, vehicle speed sensor malfunction, hub bearing failure which has built in speed sensors, the only way to accurately diagnose this type issue, unfortunately is a live data scanner capable of accessing the ABS sensor readings in real time, not a code reader, this type of scanner is only available at dealerships and high end repair facilities, parts changing to diagnose is not an option because the components involved are very pricey and require programming once installed. I know this is not the answer you hoped for and is also bad news, please do not shoot the messenger. Please accept my answer, if you have any further questions I will answer them until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
