Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Lincoln Continental Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 012014

Continental 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Air ride has worked properly until "check air ride" light came on. The air bags do not leak but any adjustment in load is not compensated for. Compressor clicks on for about 5 seconds only and then clicks off and brings up warning.

Update from Jun 3, 2016: It later turned out that the left rear air bag solenoid shorted internally, and then burned out that circuit in the computer. The solenoid was first diagnosed by reading the diagnostic trouble codes on a scan tool; a code indicated the rear left solenoid circuit had failed. The solenoid was then manually diagnosed by measuring the resistance across it and comparing it to the specification; it read too low. The computer was then diagnosed by first measuring all power and ground circuits and then the solenoid circuits, the left rear circuit was found to not be producing voltage when the key was set to run. A replacement solenoid is available at parts stores, the VDM (Vehicle Dynamic Module) needed to be acquired at a salvage yard (some VDM's have a white connector and some have a grey, this needs to be matched to the old unit).
