Question about 2002 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Power front seat won't go back and forth

I have 2002 Lincoln Town Car. When I push the button to bring the front seat up closer to the steering wheel it makes a sound like the gears are slipping. If someone pushes from the back seat while I hold the button the seat will move without the gear sound. Do I need a whole new track or can the gear mechanism be replaced?

U will have to replace the entire power seat transmission, there is no other way to get the part, I know it sucks but that is the way it is, try finding a used unit, or swap the passenger side to the drivers side.

I can't drive the vehicle it won't go out of park. It is Stuck in park


Check the brake switch. On some vehicles there is a switch that must make before it allows you to take it out of park. I have also seen blown fuse/pulled fuse that would do this.

Air bag code 33 for a 2005 lincoln town car


2005 Towncar SRS Code 33 (3 flash + 3 flash, repeat this set for twice. then Beep 5 times pause x 5 = 25 beeps every 30min).

This means you have problem with left (Driver) side pretentioner (Seat belt retract system).
It doesn't mean physical belt or retract mechanism.It is just bomb wiring which is part of airbag system.
When airbag deploy, passenger must stay tight in seat otherwise body lean to front then slam back to seat by airbag.
if belt is loose or delay to lock, passenger's body rocks back and forth.So, system use small bomb (Fire power) to lock and retract seat belt when airbag deploy.There is small bomb and igniter in part of Seat belt retractor.
Code 33 is warning for this part on 2005 Towncar.(older model is different meaning in Ford/Lincoln, it's possibly passenger side airbag system for earlier model)
Before you work for any part of Airbag system and touch any "Yellow connector", * *Disconnect battery (negative side is good enough) and wait at least 5 min to clear all power in system**.(Airbag store back up power for few minutes to be able to deploy even in case if power disconnected)
by the way, you should move your driver seat most forwarded position before you disconnect battery to make it easy to work with seat belt.
locate driver side seat belt retractor (in center pillar between front and rear door, you may have to fight with weather strip)

Locate Yellow connector on bottom of Seat belt retractor (it's called "Pretensioner")it is located on very bottom of rear side of retractor.
only one yellow connector. (make sure your battery is disconnected)
Check its physical connection or looseness.if connection looks fine, you may have to replace whole seat belt ($180-$200 in Lincoln dealer)
You can check if pretensionor is good or bad by regular tester, but unless you know how, I won't tell (because I don't wan't you to blow out pretentionor).

Driver's side front seat won't move


It is likely the gear on the motor came off track with the seat. The seat will have to be removed and bottom panel disassembled.
