A relay is a fancy word for a switch. Your interior switch sends 12 volts to the relay that activates the relay (turns on the switch). You troubleshoot it like any other switch. Is 12 volts coming out of the relay? If not the relay is bad, if so is the voltage getting to the motors? If so it's the motor or jammed linkage. If not it's between the relay and the motor.

SOURCE: 2000 lincoln ls heater not working...thermostat?

- If temp guage reads normal, the lack of heat may be due to the Heater Control Valve. Located in front of the radiator. Lower passenger side. A real bugger to replace.
- The plastic cap just over the thermostat is key in re-filling the anti freeze and bleeding air.

Wipers will not work on my lincoln ls ! i have changed the wiper motor, i have changed clock spring . rain sensor likes up.the relays click


Unfortunately your circuit is very complicated involving several relays and fuses as well as the FEM, which takes the input from the switch. Since you can hear relays clicking, you are probably hearing the run/park relay. That means your FEM and switch may be fine. The main wiper relay is supposed to be on whenever the car is running, so perhaps that is the one that is NOT on. Check fuses 20 in the box under the hood and 26 in the box inside the car. Note that there are 2 relay boxes under the hood. You want the one shaped like the pic below. If those fuses are good, pull out the main wiper relay, turn the key on, and then push the relay in listening closely to see if it clicks when you push it in. If it doesn't, try swapping it for another relay in the box.

I have a lincoln town carr 2000 and my driver side window will not roll up and my driver side wiper is broke and my driver side heater for my seat will not work now


for the window, take out the switch and clean it up or replace it. when you clean it, be careful cause the parts inside are pretty small. and the seat heater i would check the plug under the seat and make sure its still plugged in and if it is then check the fuse for it. and for the wiper, replace the wiper motor, and autopart store will have it

Sounds like a loose connection, Clean the fuse contacts. Sometimes lubricant and dirt gets on the contacts within the switch itself and this will interfere with power supply. Have you checked the wiper relay corrosion and wear on the relay contacts impair electrical connection. Brighten up contacts with fine sand paper and if the relay contacts are suspect, remove the cover and draw folded sand paper between the contacts until clean.
