Question about 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis
For months now the headlights come on when they want so I just pull the brights on....and I have done lots of research on the pc. All say it's a FAULTY "Lighting Control Module" or LCM. But now....I went to start it today and got nothing, not even a lightbulb, and the LCM was clicking vigorously. Now I'm trying to find out if this LCM could be causing my MGM not to start. Someone also said it could be the factory installed alarm. I went looking for the alarm to disconnect it but could not find it. Any comments?
It is definitely the Lighting Control Module. Just fixed one for a friend. It has internal printed circuit board failure.
It is easy repair but it is expensive. New are 500. Controls much more than lights. Alarm, air bag, door key pad, etc.
You need to have correct part for 2003. tascafordparts,com has the for about $250.
It's just above brake pedal. remove the sond panel. The module will come out without removing other components.
