Wow, are you kidding? I know your not, let me look through my data and see what on earth, I have never seen that many codes at one time, this right out the gate looks like a pcm problem, who gave you those codes?

Well generally I check the NHSTA for trouble with a specific car that has been reported and I hate to say this, but there are 189 TSBs that may apply to your 1998 lincoln town car, Technical Service Bulletins as I suspect something very strange here and the first bulletin was as I thought put not concussive, Bulletin Number: 42107 Bulletin Date: 20041213 Category: 103100 POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:CONTROL MODULE (TCM, PCM) Summary: GENERAL (PCM) POWER TRAIN CONTROL MODULE PROGRAMMING PROCEDURES. *TT....... PCM as I mentioned, I am going to do some further research for you but this may take me a little while, so please be patient, and if I might suggest, don't drive it as at worst case scenario, you might get broken down somewhere and not get it back home and need to pay for a tow, or the least actually, maybe much worse. That is an extreme number of codes..!!
