Sounds like the lift drive assembly is screwed up if it falls shut when trying to open it. Haven't worked on these so they may have a safety feature that drops the trunk if it hits something. Is some blocking the hinges travel as it opens?

Our 2003 Lincoln Towncar trunk has suddenly began not shutting properly. When it closes, it does not fully close to a seal. Upon our troubleshooting we feel the mechanism which brings the trunk to a full...


Once the lid is latched there is a motor that pulls the latch assembly down to finish closing the lid.

I would check the latch mechinism make sure it's not moving around on you like the bolts have loosened or that anything is bent. Also there is a switch in the mechanism that activates it to finish closing as well, open the trunk and close the jaw on the lock with a screwdriver or something similar, and see if you can hear the motor run, if not I would place blame on the switch or the motor itself. And as always I would check for loose / broke wires or a bad ground in the immeidate vicinity of the mechanism.

I HAVE A 1992 LINCOLN TOWNCAR HAD IT FOR 8 YRS AND I NEVER HAD THE CODE FOR THE KEYLESS ENTRY PAD IS THERE A WAY I CAN OVERRIDE THE CODE MYSELF INSTEAD OF TAKING IT TO THE DEALER


You can't override/change the keypad code without knowing the original code 1st. Lincoln usually puts the code # on a sticker inside the trunk lid. I've had 3 and all three had the sticker. Open the truck and check just under the lip for the sticker. Apart from getting the code that way, I'm afraid the only other way is to go to the dealer and have them look it up according to the VIN#.

ABS/traction control 1998 lincoln towncar


sounds like the brake pads may be metal to metal, that could be the noise problem, but until u have the system tested for the trouble code that is setin the ABS modules memory when the light comes on you are guessing, the Dealer is the only one in most cases that has the scan tool to check ABS trouble codes.

I have a 1993 lincoln towncar whose trunk lid will not close. not automatically as it use to do or even with the trunk key.


Check little finger like/half moon part of latch on lid & see if it comes across, and locks in. Use a screwdriver or something. Then turn key & see if it snaps back. See what you find & get back to us. Don't be afraid to lubricate all that in there while your at it.

1995 lincoln town car trunk will not automatically shut


There is a black flat switch handle immediately to the right side of the latch. Press that switch handle and the latch will make a noise and rise slightly. Then when you shut the deck, the switch activates and recesses, pulling the deck lid down to the fully closed position.

Hope this helps
