Lincoln Continental - 1996 Fuse Box Diagram

If any of
these things happen, have the air bag
system serviced at your Ford or Lincoln-
Mercury dealer immediately.
Unless serviced,
the air bag supplemental restraint system may
not function properly in the event of a collision.
/!\ WARNING
Do not attempt to service, repair, or modify
the Air Bag Supplemental Restraint System
or its fuses.
See your Ford or Lincoln-
Mercury dealer.
Disposal of air bags or air bag equipped
vehicles
For disposal of air bags or air bag equipped
vehicles, see your local Ford or Lincoln-Mercury
dealer.
Air bags
MUST
be disposed of by qualified
personnel.
Safety Restraints for Children
In the U.S. and Canada, you are required by
law to use safety restraints for children.
If
small children ride in your vehicle - this
generally includes children who are four years
old or younger and who weigh 40 pounds (18
kg) or less - you must put them in safety seats
that are made specially for children.
Safety
belts alone do not provide maximum protection
for these children.
Check your local and state
laws for specific requirements.
/!\ WARNING
Never let a passenger hold a child on his or
her lap while the vehicle is moving.
The
passenger cannot protect the child from
injury in a collision
.
25
To operate:
1.
Start the engine.
2.
Depress and hold the brake pedal.
3.
Depress the thumb button (console-mounted
gearshift only).
4.
Move the gearshift lever out of P (Park).
Your vehicle is equipped with a Brake Shift
Interlock safety feature.
This feature prevents
the gearshift from being moved from the P
(Park) position until the brake pedal is
depressed.
This feature is active when the
ignition is in the ON position.
If the gearshift
lever CANNOT be moved from P (Park) with
the brake pedal depressed:
1.
Turn the engine off and remove the ignition
key.
2.
Apply parking brake.
3.
Reinsert the ignition key and turn clockwise
to the first position (OFF).
180
4.
Depress the brake pedal, depress the
thumb button (console-mounted gearshift
only), move the gearshift lever to N
(Neutral) and start the engine.
If you need to shift out of P (Park) by using
the alternate procedure described above, it is
possible that a fuse has blown and that your
brakelamps may also not be functional.
Please refer to the
Servicing Your
Continental
chapter for instructions on
checking and replacing fuses.
/!\ WARNING
DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE
UNTIL YOU VERIFY THAT THE
BRAKELAMPS ARE WORKING.

Use only MERCON
ATF power steering fluid.
If the power steering fluid is low, do not drive your
vehicle for a long period of time before adding fluid.
This can damage the power steering pump.
Fuses
Fuses (conventional and high current) protect your
vehicle's electrical system from overloading.
If
electrical parts in your vehicle are not working, the
system may have been overloaded and blown a fuse.
Before you replace or repair any electrical parts,
check the appropriate fuses (conventional and high
current).
266
The following charts tell you which fuses protect
each electrical part of your vehicle.
If a fuse blows,
all
the parts of your vehicle that use that circuit will
not work.
Once you have determined which fuses to check,
follow the procedures under
Checking and
replacing
fuses
in this chapter.

High Current Fuses
High current fuses are circuit protectors that are
part of the wiring harness for some electrical
equipment.
These, like fuses, open when the
circuit load exceeds their amperage rating.
High
current fuses may be purchased from your Ford or
Lincoln-Mercury dealer.
The high current fuse panel is located in the engine
compartment on the left-hand fender apron.
/!\ WARNING
Always disconnect the battery before
servicing high current fuses.
Ford recommends that high current fuses be
replaced by
a qualified technician.

Checking and Replacing Fuses
If you need to check a fuse, follow these steps:
1.
Find the fuse panel underneath the instrument
panel to the left of the steering column.
Squeeze together the two areas indicated by
the arrows and pull down to remove the
cover.
2.
Find the fuse you want to check (fuses are
numbered on the fuse panel) and remove it
with the fuse pulling tool that is provided.
3.
Check the fuse to see if it is blown.
Look
through the clear side of the fuse to see if the
metal wire inside is separated.
If it is, the fuse
should be replaced.

4.
Replace the fuse with one that has the right
amperage rating. (See the following charts.)

/!\ WARNING
Always replace a fuse with one that has the
specified amperage rating.
Using a fuse with
a higher amperage rating can cause severe
wire damage and could start a fire.
5.
Align the edge of the cover with the edge of
the fuse panel and push the cover up until it
latches.
Even after you replace a fuse, it will continue to
blow if you do not find what caused the overload.
If the fuse continues to blow, have your electrical
system checked.
Lights and Bulb Replacement
It is a good idea to check the operation of the
following lights ftequently:
headlamps
high-mount brakelamp
tail lamps
brakelamps
hazard flasher
turn signals
side markers
license plate lamp
The alignment of your headlamps should be
checked if:
oncoming motorists frequently signal you to
turn off your vehicle's high beams when you do
not have the high beams on
the headlamps do not seem to give you enough
light to see clearly at night
