Lincoln Continental: I have a possessed 1997 Lincoln Continental

Customer Question

I have a possessed 1997 Lincoln Continental that has lighting issues. I have messages on my electronic dash that says Door Ajar, Tail lamp out, and floor lights won't go off draining the battery. What could it be?
Is there a main control module and a lighting module? Which one could it be? It seems in my research it could be the lighting module. But I also have a problem with the electric door lock.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.Your 1997 Continental dose have a LCM (lighting control module) and all of the lights including the door ajar light are controlled through this module and its fairly common for them to fail as well. See the wiring diagram in the links below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them. I suspect you have a bad LCM. the LCM location in the link below.
