You would probably do best to take the car to someone with an analizer to plug into the computer to see what is causing the problem.



WRONG CAR, THIS IS A '88 LINC. CONT. SIGN. SERIES, W/ VIN 4 V6 MUSTANG ENGINE AND BESIDES BEING MORE THAN 20+ YR OLD, SHOPS WILL LAUGH AT YOU BECAUSE THEY DONT HAVE THE EQUIPTMENT THIS CAR REQUIRES FOR TESTING. THIS IS AN OBD 1 VEH., NOT OBD 2... THIS VEHICLE IS 1000% (YES, THIS IS CORRECT) OBSOLETE...TRANSLATION: IF THE MECHANIC IS NOT 80+YRS OLD, THEN HE DOESNT KNOW ABOUT THE ELECTRICAL ON IT...
AFTER A YEAR SEARCHING, I FINALLY FOUND THE BREAK-OUT BOX (PAIRED W/ A MULTIMETER IT IS THE SCANNER, HINT HINT), FORD FIRED THE DESIGNER OF THIS CAR BCUS OF A 900.00USD DIFFERENCE AND HIRED A DEGENERATE TO MAKE IT 900.00 USD CHEAPER TO BUILD, HENCE, WHAT WE GOT...THE CAR SOLD @ BASE PRICE CLOSE TO 30k USD. IT USES A TEVES TYPE II ABS WHICH IS FORD CLAIMS IS ONLY ON THE 89 AND NEWER T-BIRDS.

IF YOU HAVE ABS ISSUES, ONLY PLACE FOR PARTS IS CONTINENTAL-TEVES BUT ONLY IF YOU WANT YOUR INTEGRAL UNIT REBUILT-@ 2500.00 USD, YES, 2500.00.

IF YOU HAVE ISSUES WITH AIR RIDE, FIRST HINT IS: CAR RAISES AND LOWERS AUTOMATICALLY WHEN YOU OPEN/CLOSE THE DOORS.
CAR RIDES HIGHER AT HIGH SPEEDS AND LOWER AT LOW SPEEDS. IF YOU ARE NOT RAISING DROPPING AS DESCRIBED THEN YOU ARE HAVING AIR RIDE ISSUES.

ALL IN ALL, YOU NEED A BREAK-OUT BOX TO DO DIAGNOSTICS ON YOUR 88LINC..
GOOD LUCK...
