Question about 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII
I've got a 1998 Mark VIII with a license plate light out. I've replaced the bulb and had no luck. What should I look for next???
Get a multi meter, check to see if you have power. then check the plug that the light plugs into. Is it damaged at all? if so replace. If no then follow the path of the wire. Make sure its not damaged, if so splice out and replace the bad section of the wire. If not go to the fuse. check to see if the fuse is bad, if so replace it. Check for odd things like a dime in your cigaret lighter hole. If all else fails you may need to have the light switch checked. Unless you know how to pull it and check for any melted or broken connections in the control switch and pannel. Its easy enough to fix your self, but I would start out with much easier projects first. Special note following a wire from where it ends to where it starts is not a easy job, it can take a lot of patience. even a litle help. take your time and check thouroughly. If its a bad wire, you may save your self a lot of money, and end up fixing more than one problem that you were not aware of. As I always do, I also recamend buy a Chilton not a Haines manual. They give a lot of detailed info and very good pictures to follow along with.
