I would first check the fuse for the dash, since that should be simple and a cheap fix. If not, the light in the dash may need replacement. The final and most difficult possibility would be a fault in the wiring between the dash lights and the power source.

SOURCE: 1995 Lincoln town car blower motor resistor

it's most likely the blower resistor, which is located under the hood on the passengers side in the evaporator case. if you have manual a/c heat control this is a cheap fix, if you have auto temp control it is a very expensive part [around 200.00] good luck

SOURCE: lincoln digital dash electrical problem

You can take the car to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan.

If you happen to need a digital dash, you can get one at a Salvage yard. Since you mentioned burned wiring, your car insurance may cover some of the repair under fire insurance. Give them a call.

Most likely since the A/C and radio worked, they are okay. The failure could be the dash display.

    You say t pump is coming on, but do you fuel coming up to the fuel injector rail? You can check for fuel by pushing down the valve located at the left front side of fuel rail. It looks like a tire air fill stem. Be very careful as fuel is under 40 psi pressure and can spray all over the place. do this with engine OFF and have a rag to cover the valve. Just press with tip of screwdriver and be sure valve is covered. If a little gas come out,you know you have fuel. If not gas then check fuel delivery system i.e pump, filter, lines or pickup tube.

    If there is fuel in the rail, then there is most likely a problem with the control module (computer).
    Check for fault codes with an OBD II reader. You can usually rent one at your local part store. You can look up fault codes to find out where the problem might lie.

    More questions, just leave in comments.

    Good Luck.

    My wiring in my 95 town car is going all wrong and i need to find out how to re wire it. none of my digital dash read outs work when i turn my head ljghts on and signals on dash dont work niether


    We had an experience with the Lincoln Digital dash and you may want to check your alternator first.

    When our alternator shorted out we did not lose power: however the speedo and odometer showed 60 mph at idle with miles being counted on the odometer. Sometimes the mph changed when we started moving.

    I replaced the digital dash and was lucky to find a used one. Because of the alternator the replacement dash did the same thing. Lots of work and money for nothing.

    Took the alternator into Autozone (You can drive) and got free test. Replaced alternator and everything worked again. You should check your ground wires for the turn signals or change signal stalk.

    sounds like your alternater is not fixed. Your car ran off of battery power till you drained it. Complete alternater repair and charge battery. You can check if your alternater works by starting car and disconnect positive cable if it stays running your alternate is fixed. Shut car off and replace positive cable.

    I had a problem with gauges and even the digital speedometer on a 1988 Lincoln. It turned out to be the alternator. The alternator was leaking a charge into the body of the car and all the guages went goofy. Have an autoparts store hook a meter to your car to check the alternator.

    "Altenor & Battery


    I had the same exact problem on my 1995 lincoln after I had a stereo installed,and what I found was that the battery cable come from the battery on the positive side going to the (igniton relay)I'm not sure what its exactly called but it's mounted on the passenger fenderwell,well the nut was loose because the installer forgot to tighten it down before the car left the shop.So when I got in my car and went to start it, the connection was just strong enough to start but once the car was driving down the road and hitting bumps in the road causing it to become disconnected and the dash cluster started going crazy because the connection was making contact then coming off then make contact again and so on.......I hope this helps.
