\015 I WAS HAVING SOME PROBLEMS WITH MY OLD SPEEDOMETER CLUSTER ON THE 2004 LINCOLN LS V8. SO I GOT A USED ONE TOOK IT TO MY LOCAL MECHANIC TO HAVE HIM SWAP IT OUT. HE TOOK OUT THE OLD ONE PUT IN THE NEW ONE AND THE CAR WONT START, SO HE PUT BACK THE OLD CLUSTER IN, AND IT STILL WOULDN'T START....HE HAD HIS LOCKSMITH CHECK OUT THE PROBLEM EVEN HAD HIM MAKE A NEW KEY AND REPROGRAM THE UNIT (BOTH OLD & NEW) AND THE CAR JUST WOULDN'T START ALL IT DOES IS FLASH THE SECURITY LIGHT ON TOP OF THE DASHBOARD. BUT IT DOESN'T END THERE, I DECIDED TO TAKE IT TO FORD LINCOLN DEALER HOPING THEY COULD FIX THE PROBLEM AND FOR 3 WEEKS THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING I THERE SHOP, THEY ERACED THE OLD PROGRAMMING FOR THE CAR ,THEY RESET THE SECURITY SYSTEM, WHICH OLD AND NEW SOFTWARE AT THEIR DISPOSAL AND MADE 2 NEW KEYS AND THE KEYS WONT PROGRAM THE CAR WONT START. NOTHING. I HAVE HAD IT UP TO HERE WITH THIS CAR....NOW THE FORD GUYS ARE GUESSING IT MIGHT BE THE (PCM)....JESUS....CHRIST MAN...SOMEBODY HELP!!!!!

AND THIS IS THE THANKS I GET. NOW THERE IS SOME TALK ABOUT A CHIP THAT CAN REMEDY THIS PROBLEM. I HOPE IT WORTH TAKING A LOOK. AND THE FORD IDIOTS WHO BUILT THIS CAR DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE ON WHAT TO DO......IM STUCK. WITH THIS @&%$^* CAR...SORRY!!\015
OUCH! Electrical problems are a B but maybe this will help. It seems to me that I was looking at switching out the multifunction switch on a 2000 Park Avenue or an ignition switch on some vehicle but I was advised by my local, friendly, and knowledgeable auto wrecker that it was highly likely I would have problems with the car starting, turning on, or something like that because of the vehicle's security system set up. So, being as it was my wife's car I just got divorced instead and she traded it and the cash I had to give her for a Hummer. Haha, just trying to lighten things up a bit for you. Anyway, short solution long is that you might want to see if getting the related security items (steering column? ignition and/or multifunction switches, computer stuff, PCM) and who knows what else, from the same LS that you got the dash. Still a pretty ugly situation and I have NO IDEA why my junk car guy would know this yet neither your mechanic nor the Ford Motor company. Ha, I think I would call the Corporate offices and complain until you get to the design people who should know the answer to your problem. Maybe that's the way to go!
