Question about 1993 Lincoln Town Car

2 Answers

95 Lincoln Continental suspension

Had the alternator replaced week ago, and for a few days the turn signals would not work. Do now. The radio does not work, nor does the ride control work. Did before. Car bounces so much in the front that dangerous to drive.
When I got the car two years ago, the display insisted I was low on washer fluid, which I am not. Display works as do most other things. The owner's manual is no help. Looks like it was written after the car was made, as my car does a couple of good things not mentioned.

The airbag system is a very vulnerable and fragile system. Airbags actually are not even designed to withstand temperatures below 40 degrees and above 94 degrees!!! They are prone to dry rot on the inside fold of the air bag (where it folds over on itself to inflate and deflate) this creates tiny hairline rips, tears and pinholes which can be difficult to detect with the soapy water test (since its "technically on the inside of the bag) it will overwork your compressor and ultimately can be very expensive to repair or replace components properly. Have you looked into passive conversion systems at all? Strutmasters.com has a conversion kit that I bought about 8 months ago (I was having similar problems) http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-1995-2002-continental-suspension-s/166.htm it ended up costing me about $100 per wheel and they were easy to install. Thankfully they also came with a lifetime warranty so if this is ever problem again... its not my problem. Hope this helped!! Good Luck!!

You replaced the Alternator... Good! But did you replace the battery, battery cables, and ground cable? Not checking or replacing these (considering the age of your car) may be leading your car to draw ALL of it's electricity from the alternator while driving and using the radio, lights, air suspension etc. Batteries and cables have limited life spans. If you haven't replaced these since the car was new.. I'd look into replacing them.

    These cars were never meant to be driven hard. The airbag suspension is vulnerable if driven too hard. You need to take the car in to the dealer and have the airbag suspension checked, you also have an air suspenion on/off switch in the trunk that may be turned off.

Can not get the new air ride compressor to come on


Make sure the trunk switch is turned on. Your doorjam and trunk switches are wired into the Air-ride. They must sense the openings are closed before the lift compressor will work.

There are level controls for height. If the car was put on a lift without the switch being turned off, the positioner may be stretched beyond working.
