Question about Lincoln Cars & Trucks
If the unit does not come already programmed. It would act as if not computer was installed (just lights). A used ECU could be used for tested or to repair but a new unit needs to be programmed and updated. If it was already programmed and justed needed to be reflashed then you have other problems.

Will a scan tool communicate with all the vehicle control modules , any DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored ? Not a code reader , a professional scan tool . That's the place to start , not guessing an just replacing parts . Who diagnosed bad PCM ?

Forget the four coils. That is a common problem,but I would question 4 failing.
The ABS ,Parking Brake,Speedo Etc,where nothing to worry about,you were loosing power, when it went to fail safe,so they came up.
ETC -is Electronic Throttle Control, your problem? Maybe
You will need to have a scanner put on it's,daignostic connector under the dash,to check for codes. Them only a trained technician can follow a chart or test proceedure to properly repair.
I have a 2004 LS,one of Ford most high tech and complicated vehicles.
Conclusion: only a professional can repair you car.
I would start with a local shop. If money you have money to throw away,go to a dealer.
Most likely have to wave to it on a flat bed carrier. Don't flat tow it.
