Question about 1994 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Electrical Problem Trying to start the car, 94 towncar, results in a total loss of electrical power. Lights turn off, radio and buzzers shut off. After playing with it for a few minutes, it will come back on and start. This happened three times in 3 days. This morning I didn't have time to play with it, and had to walk to work.

    I went out in the snow yesterday, and cleaned the battery terminals (they weren't that bad, little dirty, no corrosion). Couldn't get under the car but, I went Christmas shopping anyway, just to check it out. Made 4-5 stops and started the car 7-8 times. Never had a problem.

Clean & inspect battery connections, (both ends), charge battery fully & have it load tested. I suspect bad connection, bad battery, and at worst, worn out starter.

    Well lets hope you got it. Sometimes it's a easy as loosening connections, twisting them back & forth, and re-tightening. With electrical, ya never know for sure until you try it. Good Luck

06 Colbalt Electrical System Dead


I would go to the positive terminal on the battery anjd check for black hard build up on the post and inside the terminal. This is lead sulphate and cause a high resistance to any high current flow. Clean both with sand paper until shiny and refit and tension properly. Do the negative also as it will have build up but to a lesser degree. If the battery lead runs through a connection box Check for tight connections there also. As to towing most towers have a wheel rack that fits under the tyres and lifts them clear of the road so it can be taken to to a shop.

Can't get any thing electrical to turn on. Replaced battery. No engine starting, no lights, no radio, no buzzers. Nothing works.


Lets assume the battery is a good one, I would say its a fusable link. You will need to get the car to your trusted mechanic and have it fixed..

'02 Venture 3.8L electrical sys failure, no lights, buzzers,


check the battery connections, from there follow the ground wire to the engine block and make sure there is a good clean connection, also follow the positive wire to the starter relay. there you will find more wires bolted with the main cable. these wires send power to the fuse box. you may need to use a volt meter to determine if any wires may have faults in them.
