Question about 1994 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Fuse blows as soon as it is installed

I have a problem involving my 94 town car.The circuit that controls keyless entry,temp control memory,interior lights,power mirrors,and who knows what else,continually blows as soon as the fuse is inserted.(yes,I have checked and it is the correct size fuse)
Another problem that just recently showed up is that the trunk lid no longer retracts when shut.(I am curious to know if they may be related in some form)
Any help you could give me resolving these problems would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Scott Bandeko

My interior light won't come on in my 1999 Buick Lesabre. I have checked the bulb & the fuse. Can anyone help me with this problem? Any ideas are sincerely appreciated.


Courtesy Lights
The courtesy lights come on under the following conditions:
?€¢
Any door is opened.


?€¢
The interior lamp switch is in the ON position.


?€¢
The keyless entry transmitter unlocks the doors (illuminated entry).

When the key is removed from the ignition switch with all of the doors closed, the courtesy lights light for approximately 25 seconds before fading out.
Battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times through the IP fuse block CTSY LP/PWR MIR fuse 6A via CKT 640 (ORN) through the body control module (MALL) to the courtesy lights via CKT 1732 (ORN). The MALL provides a ground through CKT 156 (WHT) for the courtesy lights under the following conditions:
?€¢
The MALL receives an input from a door being opened.


?€¢
The MALL receives an input from the interior lamp being turned ON.


?€¢
The MALL receives an input from the doors being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter.

The courtesy lamps then light.
When the courtesy lights are activated by opening and closing a door, the courtesy lights will remain on for approximately 25 seconds before fading out after all of the doors are closed. If the ignition switch is turned to START or RUN within the 25 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out. If a door is left open, the MALL removes battery positive voltage (B+) to the courtesy lights after 10 minutes. When the courtesy lights are activated by the interior lamp switch, the lights remain on as long as the interior lamp switch is in the ON position. When the courtesy lights are activated by unlocking the doors using the keyless entry transmitter, the lights remain on for approximately 40 seconds. If the doors are locked using the keyless entry transmitter within the 40 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out.
Body Control Module (MALL) Diagnostic Mode
For a detailed explanation of the MALL module diagnostic mode, refer to Body Control Module Cell 51.
What interior light ? Dome , courtesy lights etc....They don't work with switch, keyless entry , door opening ?

How do i reprogram electronic door locks


Programming Electronic Door Lock Control System NOTE: The electronic door lock control processor (14B001) erases all previous keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601) from memory when the keyless entry remote transmitters are programmed or reprogrammed. The electronic door lock control processor can store up to four keyless entry remote transmitters in memory.


  • To program (or reprogram) keyless entry remote transmitter into the electronic door lock control processor, perform the following steps:
  1. Turn ignition switch to the RUN position and momentarily short the two terminals of the program connector taped to the wire assembly and located behind the glove compartment. All doors should lock and then unlock. Remove shorting pin.
  1. Press any button on keyless entry remote transmitter. All doors should lock and then unlock to verify the keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed. If door locks do not respond, press button again (up to three times maximum with the same keyless entry remote transmitter).
  1. Repeat the above step to program additional keyless entry remote transmitters into the electronic door lock control processor (up to four keyless entry remote transmitters maximum).
  1. Turn ignition switch OFF. All doors should lock and then unlock.
  1. Check operation.

I have 1992 Lincoln Towncar. I can use the keyless


You probably have a bad hazard switch.

For the code,
1. Look on the deck lid arms for a small tag with the permanent code.
2. If you purchased new, call selling dealer to see if they have it recorded on the invoice.
3. Look in the glove box owner manual package for a credit card size plastic card with the code number.
4. Pay dealer 1/2 hour labor charge to retrieve the code with their diagnostic tool. Confirm price ahead of time.
5. Look on keyless entry module for the tag with the code.

For 1994 town car, module is behind glvoe box. Not sure for 1992, sinnce 94 was a new model design.

Door Lock Control Processor, Electronic Removal and Installation
  1. Drop glove compartment door. Refer to Section 01-05 .
  1. Remove nut on electronic door lock control processor (14B001) bracket assembly.
  1. Remove bracket assembly from RH cowl.
  1. Remove electronic door lock control processor from electronic door lock control processor bracket assembly (2 screws).
  1. To install, reverse Removal procedure.

Keypad door lock does not work..?


it's in owner manual. But, first you have to enter your original code and it must work. then you press the 1 button and then enter a new 5 digit code, then press the 1 button again.

Keyless Entry Keypad To unlock the driver front door (20124) , and disarm the anti-theft alarm control (19A366) , (if equipped):
  • Enter the permanent factory code.
  • Enter the owner's alternate code.
To unlock the passenger door(s), press the 3/4 button within five seconds of unlocking the driver door or luggage compartment. To unlock the luggage compartment door (40110), press the 5/6 button within five seconds of unlocking driver or passenger door(s). To turn on the courtesy lamps and light all illuminated components, lift either front door handle (22404) or press any button on the keyless entry keypad (14A626) . To lock all doors, press the 7/8 and 9/0 buttons at the same time with all doors closed. (It is not necessary to enter the key code first.) This will turn off courtesy lamps and arm anti-theft alarm control (if equipped). To program an alternate code:
  1. Enter the five digit permanent entry code into keyless entry keypad .
  1. Within five seconds of pressing last button of permanent code, press the 1/2 button within five seconds of pressing the last button of the permanent code.
  1. Enter any alternate five digit code within five seconds of pressing 1/2 button.
    • Enter a sixth digit as follows to indicate operator's memory seat setting to be set by alternate code:
      • 9/0 — no memory recall
      • 1/2 — memory seat position 1
      • 3/4 — memory seat position 2
      • 5/6 — memory seat position 3
    • After successful programming, the doors will signal by locking and then unlocking.

    Fuse or what


    Your multifunction switch on the steering column controls your exterior lights. The GEM module controls the interior lights and other stuff. If bad, it would not blow fuses. WHich fuse blows?
    Your Ford dealer might be familiar with this issue, so call the service dept and ask them and get a quote. It may be wiring.
    reoprt back.

    • The high beams are inoperative
    • Circuitry.
    • Multifunction switch.
    • Go To Pinpoint Test C .


    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Principles of Operation
    Generic Electronic Module (GEM) The generic electronic module (GEM) receives inputs from the following:
    • door ajar switches
    • liftgate ajar switch (wagon)
    • liftgate glass switch (wagon)
    • headlamp switch
    • keyless entry keypad switches
    • the powertrain control module (PCM) (vehicle speed signal)
    • ignition switch
    • remote keyless entry transmitter
    The GEM uses these inputs to control the output to the battery saver relay and interior lamp relay. Both relays are integral to the central junction box (CJB) and cannot be accessed directly.
    Interior Lighting Systems The GEM grounds the battery saver relay and interior lamp relay coils when any door ajar switch or the headlamp switch is closed. The interior lamp relay then supplies power to the interior lamp circuit. Vehicle speed must be less than 15 kph (9 mph) for the GEM to ground the interior lamp relay. The interior lamps will remain illuminated for a period of up to 25 seconds after all doors are closed or until the ignition is switched from the OFF position, or the GEM receives a vehicle speed signal. Actuating the interior lights from the headlamp switch will operate at any time.
    Illuminated Entry Illuminated entry is activated when a keyless entry keypad switch provides ground on the GEM input or when the GEM receives an unlock signal from the remote keyless entry key fob. The GEM then provides ground to the battery saver and interior lamp relay coils. Illuminated entry is deactivated when the GEM receives a lock signal from the remote keyless entry key fob or if the GEM receives ground inputs from the keyless entry keypad switch lock code. Illuminated entry will also be deactivated when the GEM receives input voltage from the ignition switch.
    Battery Saver The battery saver is activated when the GEM is not receiving voltage input from the ignition switch (off position). The GEM will then provide ground to the battery saver relay coil for a maximum of 30 minutes depending on the state of the interior lamp switch inputs to the GEM. The energized battery saver relay switches voltage to the demand lamp circuit and the interior lamp relay coil. After time-out, the GEM removes ground to the battery saver relay disabling the demand lamp circuit.
    Puddle Lamps The puddle lamp relay operates reverse from the battery saver relay and the interior lamp relay. The puddle lamp relay coil receives voltage when the ignition switch is in the START or RUN position, which disables the circuit to the puddle lamps.
    Inspection and Verification
    1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
    1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

    Remote keyless entry, radio and power sliding door


    I think the body control module is shorting out . The body control module can be over heating internally then shorted out. All the parts you mention have a circuit running to the body control module. I would have the vehicle checked for codes at a repair shop , then check the wiring to the body control module.
    good luck
