Question about 1998 Lincoln Town Car
Brake and single lights work rear tail lights and parking lights do not headlights work
First check all the light bulb's. Then check all the fuse's related to the lights on the vehicle. If that doe's not solve the problem, Check the relay that may be associated with the exterior rear light's. If that does not solve the problem, You either have a bad light switch itself located under the light knob that you are turning the lights on and off with, which is located on the dashboard display panel in various different location's depending on the make, model and year of your motor vehicle. and if that does not solve your problem it is possibly a wiring shortage which is followed from the light switch through the dashboard, to the fuse box, then through the entire vehicle running from the front of the vehicle to the back of the vehicle on the floor of the vehicle on either side of the vehicle, or the wire's may be located in the interior roof trim located on the inside of the vehicle over the door area running from the front off the vehicle to the rear of the vehicle, or the wire's could also run from the front of the vehicle to the back of the vehicle through the center of the floor or center console area, But most light shortage's are located either at the light fixture itself, which is where the light bulb is located, or either at the fuse in the fuse box, or at the light switch located on the dashboard display area.

is this type that uses the indicator bulbs as brake light or the europeon type with seperate lights ??,check for feed to brake light switch first then hold down pedal and for current coming from other terminal.if its all working then check wiring connectors at back where they split to either side what you call pigs tails??if its the other type of wiring where the brake lights also use the indicators then their is some sort of relay but i havent a clue how to check that one out as when i have had american cars to import i have had to rewire to europeon standards .

SOURCE: no side lights or rear lights
You have a caroded or broken connection on the right inner fender skirt. Check your connection plug also for corrosion. The power goes out of the fuse block on the left fender across the front to right fender then to the rear taillights.

Before going ahead and spending money on a new module, test it first. The module is located under the steering column. You'll find a Brown wire on one of the connectors (i just looked at a wire diagram). Do no disconnect anything. Back probe the brown wire, which is the power feed to your park lights. With the lights off, there should be 0 volts on you voltmeter. Turn the park lamps on, There should be 12V. If there is not 12V, disconnect the connector and try to check voltage at the pin that feeds to the brown wire, if still not 12V, replace the module. If you do get 12V, then module is ok, find where the 12v is being dropped before making it to the lamps.
