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.

Keyless entry does not unlock doors, open trunk, or start vehicle (remote start built onto keyless entry). Battery is new in BOTH remotes and neither one works. Could a fuse in vehicle be bad? Secondly,...


RFA / MOD fuse 10amp . location - insturment panel fuse box. Fuse Block - I/P
Right side of the I/P, behind the access panel
If the fuse is good your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop , that doesn't mean the dealer . Lot of good independant repair shops around , just have to check the yellow pages.
Do you know what DTC'S are ? diagnostic trouble codes ! Not only the ones for the engine management system OBD 2 . There are also DTC'S for the remote keyless entry system , BCM - body control module. You need a factory or professional scan tool to view this codes
DTC B3101
DTC B3102
DTC B3103
DTC B3106

The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR) communicates with the body control module (BCM) through the keyless entry serial data circuit. When any button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed, the transmitter sends a signal to the RCDLR. The RCDLR sends a lock, unlock, or panic alarm request to the BCM, depending on which button is pressed on the transmitter. The BCM receives the message and performs the appropriate function. The BCM also uses the keyless entry serial data circuit in order to communicate with the RCDLR when programming transmitters. Do you know what serial data circuits are ?

DTC B3101 Keyless Entry Data Link Circuit Range/Performance
DTC B3102 Keyless Entry Data Link Circuit Low
DTC B3103 Keyless Entry Data Link Circuit High
DTC B3106 Keyless Entry Data Link Parity Error

This is what the factory manual said as to the location of power steering fluid reservoir ! Not much help , you would do better googling it.
The power steering fluid reservoir holds the power steering fluid and may be integral with the power steering pump or remotely located. The following locations are typical locations for the remote reservoir:
• Mounted to the front of the dash panel
• Mounted to the inner fender
• Mounted to a bracket on the engine

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.


    Visual Inspection Chart Electrical
    • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse 101 (60A)
    • Central junction box (CJB) fuse 226 (10A)

    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
