Question about 1995 Lincoln Town Car
2002 town car cranks but won't start when it's wet out
The ignition coil wis defective, possible crack in the coil case. When it is wet, the coil case becomes wet, and the electricity shorts (arcs) to the coil frame. Hence, no electricity will flow into the distributor, or plugs, etc... When it is dry, it is harder for it to short to ground, so the cracked coil will work (somewhat). To check for this, try the following when it won't start. Lift your engine cover off and locate the coil. Make sure the wire (coil to the distributor) is firmly connected at both ends. Turn the key and watch the coil. If you see blue-white electrical arcing, you have a bad coil.
