How do you replace the speed control switch on '99 Lincoln town car?

    My 1996 Lincoln town car signature series has had the recall performed on the cruise control harness they disconnected the harness for about 4 months until the parts were available and then they u reo\place the harness in about 20 minutes.

    I just finished a 1700-mile roundtrip excursion from Fort Myers Florida to Gulfport Mississippi and back. The cruise control worked for the first 521 miles…. Then the cruise speed control would not activate again after stopping for gas in Defuniak Springs
    on interstate 10 …. Thee on the return trip it activated and was available for almost the entire return trip even after gas stops.

    So I am wondering if I just need to replace the steering wheel control panel for the signature series town car?

Depends, steering wheel buttons, on throttle body?
If it is on the steering wheel I suggest you purchase or consult the repair manual. There are a lot of steps you have to take.
Most importantly if this is it. Make sure you follow correctly the procedures involing the air bag.
You do not want this to go off.
