SOURCE: lincoln town car 1995 radio won't turn off

I have seen people remove the factory radio, cut the harness and splice it to an aftermarket headunit, then attempt to reattach the factory harness they cut off to install the OEM radio back in proir to sale. Try removing the radio and look to see if the wires have been tampered with. If so you need to reconnect the harness wire by wire and use crimp connectors not the twist and tape method. Otherwise the electrical system has been altered elsewhere. The ACC lead to the radio should power off the radio when you turn off the ignition no matter what unless the electrical system has been modified.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system and disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes. Plug the hoses and the heater core tubes to prevent coolant leakage.
  3. Remove the 3 nuts located below the windshield wiper motor attaching the left end of the plenum to the dash panel. Remove the 1 nut retaining the upper left corner of the evaporator case to the dash panel.
  4. Disconnect the vacuum supply hose(s) from the vacuum source. Push the grommet and vacuum supply hose(s) into the passenger compartment.
  5. Remove the right and left lower instrument panel insulators.
  6. On 1990-00 vehicles:
    1. Remove the cross body brace and disconnect the wiring harness from the temperature blend door actuator.
    2. Disconnect the ATC sensor tube from the evaporator case connector.
  7. Disconnect the vacuum jumper harness at the multiple vacuum connector near the floor air distribution duct. Disconnect the white vacuum hose from the outside-recirculating door vacuum motor.
  8. Remove the 2 hush panels.
  9. Remove 1 plastic push fastener retaining the floor air distribution duct to the left end of the plenum. Remove the left screw and loosen the right screw on the rear face of the plenum and remove the floor air distribution duct.
  10. Remove the 2 nuts from the 2 studs along the lower flange of the plenum.
  11. Carefully move the plenum rearward to allow the heater core tubes and the stud at the top of the plenum to clear the holes in the dash panel. Remove the plenum from the vehicle by rotating the top of the plenum forward, down and out from under the instrument panel. Carefully pull the lower edge of the instrument panel rearward, as necessary, while rolling the plenum from behind the instrument panel.
  12. Remove the 4 retaining screws from the heater core cover and remove the cover from the plenum assembly. Pull the heater core and seal assembly from the plenum assembly.
To install:
  1. Carefully install the heater core and seal assembly into the plenum assembly. Visually check to ensure that the core seal is properly positioned. Position the heater core cover and install the 4 retaining screws.
  2. Route the vacuum supply hose through the dash panel and seat the grommet in the opening.
  3. Position the plenum under the instrument panel with the register duct opening up and the heater core tubes down. Rotate the plenum up behind the instrument panel and position the plenum to the dash panel. Insert the heater core tubes and mounting studs through their respective holes in the dash panel and the evaporator case.
  4. Install the 3 nuts on the studs along the lower flange and one on the upper flange of the plenum. Install the 3 nuts below the windshield wiper motor to attach the left end of the plenum to the dash panel and the one nut to retain the upper left corner of the evaporator case to the dash panel.
  5. Position the floor air distribution duct on the plenum. Install the 2 screws and plastic push fastener. If removed, position the panel door vacuum motor to the mounting bracket and install the 2 attaching screws.
  6. Connect the white vacuum hose to the outside-recirculating door vacuum motor. Connect the vacuum jumper harness to the plenum harness at the multiple vacuum connector near the floor air distribution duct. Install the floor duct.
  7. If equipped with manual air conditioning, connect the temperature control cable housing to the bracket on top of the plenum and connect the temperature control cable to the temperature blend door crank arm. Adjust the temperature cable.
  8. If equipped with ATC, proceed as follows:
  9. Connect the temperature control cable to the ATC sensor and adjust the cable. Route and connect the vacuum harness connector to the ATC sensor and connect the electrical connector to the ATC servo connector. Do not block the sensor aspirator exhaust port with the excess vacuum harness. Install the ATC sensor tube between the sensor and the evaporator connector.
  10. On 1990-00vehicles:
    1. Connect the ATC sensor tube to the evaporator case connector.
    2. Install the cross body brace and connect the wiring harness to the blend door actuator.
    3. Install the bolt to attach the lower right end of the instrument panel to the side cowl. Install the right side cowl trim panel and tighten the right door sill plate attaching screws.
  11. Connect the vacuum supply hose(s) to the vacuum source.
  12. Install the right and left lower instrument panel insulators and install the 2 hush panels.
  13. Unplug the heater core tubes and the heater hoses and connect the heater hoses to the heater core tubes. Fill the cooling system.

SOURCE: heat wont work 2001 lincoln town car cartia

Hello Callahan5922....this sounds like a stuck blower motor resistor. I assume the blower won't function in the a/c mode either? If you have a digital multimeter you can check this. I believe it's fuse #2....if the digital indicator goes up or down when you increase or decrease the fan speed thats good. Locate the blower motor resistor....you wil find it located on the fire wall behind the right valve cover hiding behind the heater hose, it's about the size of a cigarette pack. With the engine off, and key in on position, turn the A/C on High, and rap a tap tap tap on the resistor. You might be suprised when the blower motor takes off a runnin,
I hope this is the answer you need and i was able to help solve this for you. Good luck...

I have a 1996 Lincoln town car. The power windows, break lights, wipers, blinkers, radio, power locks and blower are not working. We replaced the light control module, but that didnt work. Any suggestions...


Sounds like you lost a ground in the dashboard. Not sure where but I would try shorting the ground from any of these apparatuses to check it. If they work when shorted then it's a bad ground. At that point you can either search, find and correct bad ground or simply make your ground short permanent.

I have not been around to drive my 1999 lincoln towncar and now i am and the radio doesn't work anymore does it run from a fuse? and where is it located?


  • The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering wheel by the brake pedal. Check the fuses I have indicated in the diagram below as they all are connected to the radio in some way or another.


  • 18 - 7.5 Amp - Lighting Control Module (LCM), Front Radio Control Unit, Cellular Telephone Transceiver, Electronic Day/Night Mirror, Compass Module
  • 24 - 5 Amp Front Radio Control Unit
  • 33 -15 Amp - Front Radio Control Unit, Digital Compact Disk Changer, Cellular Telephone Transceiver.

  • The power distribution box is located in the engine compartment. Check the #19 - 30 Amp in there as well. This powers the Subwoofer and I suspect the amp as well.

The abs brakes are starting to stutter in my 96 lincoln towncar. i hope it doesn't cost too much to fix because it's my daily driver with only 90,000mi.


check fuses to make sure abs pump is working properly.but at 90,000 miles you probably need new brake pads
not expensive if you know a good mechanic

Lincoln Town Car 1996


sorry but there is no way we can know what has happened, a body shop is not a good choice for the wiring damage, they fix sheet metal not wiring, have the car towed to a dealer and get the wiring fixed there, then if u need body work have the BS finish the job. Sorry i can't be of more help here.

Speakers/Stereo may be shorting out


this is an internal radio failure, ford/Lincoln don't sell parts for radio's to the public, u will need to pull the radio out and send it in for repair to a factory authorized repair center.

My 1996 Lincoln Town car heater works but you cannot control the temperature and the air conditioner blows out hot air when turned on.What could be the cause of this problem?


To fix the AC unit which blows hot air all the time. Seems like you have a small leak in the system or the AC compressor has gone out. Suggest you try recharging the unit. Make sure you have the correct R-22 or 134A freeon. If this work for a few days then have the leak fixed, if this doesn't work replace the compressor. Check Ebay for the compressor i obtained one for $100.00. Cost $450 at Auto Zone.

Radio dont work


I would definitely take it back to whoever installed it and have them fix it. It's their fault. It could be as simple as it not being connected all the way in, or they could have tapped into the power from the radio to power the remote start module. They could have shorted out a wire somewhere, blown a fuse, etc.
