Check fuses and vacuum lines that assist it, as well as the steering column, if you have a tilt steering wheel, could be pinching a wire.

SOURCE: 1997 lincoln towncar

not neccessarly true there could be several reasons for the a/c clutch not to ingage. 1 the clutch relay is bad(it is located in the junction box under the hood,switch it with the heater relay if it kicks on the relay was bad) 2 the system is under charged(the binary switch will sense this and keep the compressor off) 3 a blown fuse fore the climate control(the fuse is located in the panel under the dash on the drivers side) there is a blockage in the system(this will cause the high side pressure to rise to a point where the high pressure switch cuts the circuit. My suggestion is to first check that the wire going to the a/c clutch is not coroded or broken. then check the relay, then have the system recharged provided that there are no leaks. if the guages when hooked up initially show that the low side pressure is 35 psi and the high side is 130-150 psi then you know it was an electrical problem. if those are not the pressure it could be a blockage (most likely in the drier) or the expansion valve is bad( this regulateds the system. hope these options are of help to you good luck and please rate this thanks

SOURCE: The auto gas pedal stopped working and had it

sounds like a switch not working right in the cruise control take it back to the guy who "fixed it" and get him to "fix it" right this time,, its likley to be the brake switch sticking on, this wont let the auto cruise control engage, it keeps thinking you are trying to brake to slow down so it kicks its self out just as it should if you were driving in auto cruise you then need to reset it to go back into auto cruise

SOURCE: Add a light when the cruise is on

the extra load from the light could blow a fuse,

I would go with a LED light with a relay this way the light is ran off its own line[you would have to add].

Where is crank position sensor for 1997 lincoln continetal


It will be on the top/right of the crank, bolted to the timing cover with a plug attached. It is difficult to see from the top so you will need to jack the vehicle (using jack stands) and look from the bottom after removing the splash shield.

How much will it coast me to replace my water pump for a 1997 lincoln continetal?


It actually depends on your local market. Different parts of the country charge different rates for labor. The pump itself runs about $50 but labor varies greatly from shop to shop. Shop around for best price and warranty in your local area is best advice I can offer you.
