|Code U1950 Lincoln Description

The Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) module, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), the Transmission Control Module (TCM), the instrument cluster and the parking aid module are just some of modules that communicate over the UART Based Protocol network bus or UBP Bus. This is a high-speed bus communication system and is not fault tolerant, which means any type of intermittent/loose connection between these 3 controllers will cause communication to stop. When the PCM, ABS module and instrument cluster are unable to communicate with each other at any time while the ignition switch is turned on, code U1950 will set.
