There is actually a possible recall on this issue as it is a known problem with the LCM, or Lights Control Module. Go to the following site:
http://www.arfc.org/complaints/2003/mercury/grand_marquis/

This is one of the complaints:
HELLO, WE HAVE A 2003 MERCURY GRAND MARQUIS THAT HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE HEAD LIGHTS SHUTTING OFF AT RANDOM TIMES. NOTHING GAVE WARING TO THIS PROBLEM HAPPENING, WE BOUGHT THE CAR USED, AND WAS JUST FINE FOR A YEAR, THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN ONE DAY THE HEADLIGHTS JUST GO OUT. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED WAS ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO(3-1-10). NOW EVERYTIME IT IS DRIVEN WITH THE HEADLIGHTS ON, IT IS GUARANTEED TO HAPPEN AT LEAST ONCE AND SOMETIMES UP TO 5 TIMES JUST IN 3 MILES OF DRIVING ON MY WIFES WAY HOME FROM WORK. THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE LIGHTS BACK ON AFTER THEY GO OUT IS TO PULL OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, SHUT THE CAR OFF, LET SIT FOR A FEW MIN, THEN START AND THEY WORK AGAIN FOR A BIT. THIS IS OVERALL VERY DANGEROUS AND SUPRISING THAT WE HAVE NOT BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT OR RECIEVED A TICKET YET! I AM A ACTIVE MEMBER ON A CROWN VICTORIA FORUM, AND WITH LITTLE SEACHING ON THAT SITE OR GOOGLE YOU WILL SEE TONS OF REPORTS OF THIS BEING A VERY COMMON PROBLEM ON THE 2003-2005 CROWN VICTORIA, GRAND MARQUIS, AND MERCURY MARAUDER. WITH THE HELP OF OTHER MEBERS ON THAT FORUM IT WAS FOUND TO BE A FAULTY LCM(LIGHTING CONTROL MODULE) WHICH HAS A PROBLEM WITH OVERHEATING LIGHTING RELAYS. THE ONLY WAY TO REMEDY THIS PROBLEM IS TO PURCHAS A NEW LCM FOR ANYWHERE BETWEEN $250 AND $600 WITH NO GUARANTEE HOW LONG THAT PART WILL LAST. I ACTUALLY PURCHASED A NEW ONE TODAY. VERY EXPENSIVE FIX JUST FOR THE USE OF HEADLIGHTS, BUT I VALUE MY FAMILIES SAFETY MORE. I WILL BE KEEPING MY OLD LCM TO POSSIBLY HAVE IT REPAIRED FOR WHEN MY NEW PART FAILS AGAIN. THANKS SO MUCH.

I hav a 95 cutlass supreme. when i turn on my head lights the head lights stay on but the dash lights cut in and out and my radio also cuts off and on.sometimes when i use my turn signal my radio cuts off...


you have a loose wire or a short somewhere in the dash. Hopefully you can fix without changing the harness out. I'd try some test to try to isolate the problem. with the engine off, and the lights on and radio on, reach under the dash to where your fuses are located and lightly move the wires coming from the fuse box watching and listening for the short. If you cant locate here, move your hand deeper into the dash again lightly mving the wires behind the radio and then the light swtich. good luck of finding this.

Brake lights wont flash and turn signal wont flash


turn on the turn signals without turning on any other lights, first left, walk around the car, and see if there is a light that is not functioning, then right, and do the same. If there is a light that is not functioning, replace the bulb.
If all lights work, then its the unit flasher unit itself, and can be baught at a parts store, and is easy enough to replace in the fuse box of most cars.

Clicking noise under dash


I would change the oil and filter, including proper weight oil. Then I would test again after sitting overnight. Maybe you'll be fortunate and it was due to an overdue oil change. If it still persists, there might be a problem with a hydraulic lifter draining overnight

Volvo-left turn signal stuck on,not blinking


Remove the front turn signal bulb for the left side. There is a plastic lever if you look closely, push down the plastic lever and push forward and the lamp housing will come out.

Note: the plastic is very brittle and may break if not done carefully. Depending on the size of your hands the bulb socket can be removed in the car by turning the bulb socket base 45 deg. counter clockwise (if I remember right). Turn it one way and if it won't move turn it the other way.

With the socket unplugged start the car and see if the turn signal light on the dash is still stuck on. With any luck it will be off...

If the light is still on then there is a shorted wire somewhere in the system. If the light is off then we're on the right track.

Once you get the socket out remove and inspect the bottom side of the bulb. It should have two aluminum contacts on its base, if they are mushroomed and touching each other replace the bulb and recheck.

If the bulb is ok then replace the bulb holder. They sometimes short internally.

I hope this helps.

1999 jeep gc 4.7 turn signals not working


check your charging system and battery. Low voltage will give both the symptoms you listed. As you drive, some recharging will return system to near normal, till it sits again. I'd pay close attention to alternator output...You may have one bad diode. This added to a battery with low capacity will look the same as what you listed.
To make a "quick check" put a set of jumpers on it and connect to another battery. If directionals work properly then check everything I've said. A "alternator "quick check" is to put a voltmeter across the battery. Running with no accessories on you should see between 13.5-14.0 volts. With accessories on including lights on hi-beam, you should see no less than 12.9 volts and after a few minutes voltage should not fall off. Your battery should read no less than 12v after standing overnight (slightly less if near 0 temps)but definitely not less than 11.9. Also, make sure alternator drive belt is sufficiently tight and not slipping.
