Note: These instructions refer to the driver's side headlight. I assume the passenger side headlight is the same, but I have not verified that.
Remove the black plastic cover at the front of the hood compartment. It is secured with five velcro pads. The glue used to hold these pads on has probably worn out, but that doesn't seem to matter.
At the back of the headlight housing, there are two metal clips that need to be removed. Push towards the rear of the car as you pull up on them.
The headlight housing will now slide forward 4-6 inches.
Pull off the wiring connector at the back of the headlight bulb. There is a tab on top that may need to be pushed up. After you remove this connector, there is still one other wire that will remain attached.
There is a plastic ring around the base of the bulb that holds it in place. To remove it, twist it clockwise (when facing the car from the front) 1/3 of a turn. It should come off easily.
To remove the bulb, pull it straight back. You may have to wiggle it if it sticks. Be careful you don't bang your hand up when the bulb does come loose.
Installation of the new bulb is the reverse of the above steps. Be sure not to touch the glass of the bulb as the oils from your skin will ruin the bulb, possibly causing it to explode.
While the headlight housing is out, you should be able to figure out how to change the turn signal bulb. The car I worked on had a damaged turn signal housing, and I can not tell you much more than that.
Lighting control module
check the fuses and the flasher.
There is no stand alone flasher relay in the 94' and up Lincoln Continental. The turn signals and emergency flasher function is controlled by the "Multifunction Light Control Module" part # 13c788. It is located under the dash to the left of the steering column. Cost to replace is around $600+ at the dealer or about $50 at a junk yard.
multi function switch in steering column
This is normally located under your dash somewhere. I always find it in a different location. I normally just tun on the flashers/ turn signals if they work and listen and feel to find it. It should be a small box that has a wire connecter on it. I know that's a very vague description but, I just don't know where it would be exactly on a Lincoln as I have never had to replace one on a Lincoln. Hope this helps you get started in the right direction.
Most likely its a problem with the turn signal/high beam switch. Its a very common problem with that year. It's an expensive part to replace. could also just be the hazard switch..try giving it a vigourus work out.
Some might think there is no turn signal flasher fuse and if your turn signals are not working you should replace the turn signal switch located on the stearing colum. This is incorrect. There is a flasher for this car EP-34 12.8v ELECTRONIC FLASHER Up Date: I checked with the Lincoln dealer and verified that the Lincoln continental flasher is integrated into the "Multifunction light control module" part # 13c788. Cost at the dealer is over $600, junk yard around $50. There is no stand alone flasher relay as in the older or more senseably engineered and cheaper cars.
Replace the Flasher Relay.
replacing the bulb is easy, just undo the bulbs socket, change the bulb and put the socket back in. if the bulb is good, check fuse, then switch, then wires.
check your manual !!!
Defective Flasher Relay, replace it. One relay operates the Hazard Lights and the other operates the turn signals. Be sure and replace the correct one.Defective Flasher Relay, replace it. One relay operates the Hazard Lights and the other operates the turn signals. Be sure and replace the correct one.
If your 2000 Lincoln has turn signals that don't work, first check to see if the bulbs are working. Then, see if there is fuse that has blown that affects the turn signals.
Well so far I have found that when I turn my headlamps on and switch to the high been and then use the rocker switch for the hazards, it will allow for my turn signals to start working again.
The flasher relay is defective. Replace it.
hazards and turn signals have separate flashers. replace flasher for turn signals
if only the turn signals are not working,you should replace the flasher can
it is most likely a fuse or at worst the turn signals and stop lights work through the turnsignal switch
FRONT SEATING AREA, DRIVER SIDE, UNDER DASH, MOUNTED ABOVE KICK PANEL. Wrong answer above: The 98' Lincoln Continental does not have a stand alone flasher relay even though the auto parts store will sell you one for around $9.95 it will not work on a Lincoln Continental (works on other Fords though). The turn signals and emergency flasher function is handled by the "Multifunction Light Control Module" part #13c788 and is located to the right of the steering column under the dash. Cost is about $600 at the dealer or $50 at a junk yard.... I know I did the same thing.

There are two relays, one for the emergency flasher and one for the turn signals. Replace the Flasher Relay for the turn signals, it is defective.
If you mean "Lamps"; In your "Owner's Manual", for Front see page 6-36: Headlamps, Front Parking and Turn Signal Lamps. For Rear see page 6-38: Tail/Stop/Turn Signal and Rear Sidemarker Lamps, under Section 6: Service and Appearance Care - Bulb Replacement...
it works by reducing the amount of signals transmitted by the blue-tooth device and replace these signals with signals of the same pattern which are then used to steal data once the connection has been established
replace the flasher(underneath driver side dash panel)
