Theres a short somewhere in that circuit. use a test light to see if more than one wire is grounded. may have pinched a wire when the bell housing was bolted back up or could be a ground strap not connected.

How do i check the transmission fluid on a 2003 Lincoln avatar


There is a large drain plug on your trans pan,in the center of it is an allen head plug, while engine is running (warmed up an trans. in park) remove allen plug-if any fluid dribbles out then your ok- if not,( i used an empty gear lube bottle with the tapered cap,filled it with mercon5 ) stiCk the tapered spout up the removed plug hole an squeeze as much mercon 5 in as you can,then pull away an let excess run out- have a pan under trans to catch excess--be sure to re-install plug b-4 shutting engine off,or u lose fluid an trans will be low again

How to fix traction control>


Traction control doesn't shut the engine off. It will shut off the ABS system. Which is for slipping and sliding. You need to have the codes read. You can get code readers fairly cheap now days. But the cheaper ones will not read the ABS system or any other. Just the engine.

Why does my 1997 Plymouth Voyager shut down while driving after 20 mins?


Well code 1698 means the engine computer could not communicate with the transmission control module. I doubt that would kill the engine, but there could be a wiring problem somewhere.
It could be a faulty relay too.

1999 eclipse manual trans.2.0 engine non-turbo kills when stopping


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

yes....the computor shuts it down ....there is a tempature sensor that threads into the block this send s a signal to the computor ...also a sensor may be on the radiator as welll to kick in the fans
.....also check your engine main fuses ....ignition relays..etc......dose the engine turn over ...if it were over heatede you could have warped a head and not getting compression as well
