Lincoln Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.
The theft light is always supposed to flash with a delay when the key is removed. This is the anti theft deterrent.
If you have an owners manual you can verify this on page 95 under anti theft operation.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Is the light supposed to flash the entire time?
Yes it is. It will always flash when the key is off or removed.
