Question about Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Airbag fault it is crazy and a wake up with it on my mid everyday on 11/21/2012 my parnter was killed in my 2004 lincoln town car limited. The care had ever option that was avaiable on it. I will even go as far to say that I have been a prod owner of 15 town car since my very first 81 siguture model. However Lincoln really let me down after I contacted them after the accident and told them none of the airbags deployeed the took so much time doing what ever investigation they where supose to be doing basically 6 months the remains of what was left of the town car was destoried the ca claim in had airbags in the seats well it became obvious there where no because the car left the interstate and slammed side ways into the tree and none of them (airbags) deployed not a one. If you have a 2004 or later town car please be ware of the possibility there may be serious issues with side impact the seats.

Hi Cleve, No one can replace a loved one. I can only guess at the emptiness that seems to surround you and how much your loss has meant to you but realise that life is what is happening to you now. Life is reality and is happening all around right now. Your partner would not have wanted you to waste your life existing within an unchangeable past. No one and nothing can change what has happened. We appreciate the reason for your warning and understand it. It was not very many years passed that vehicles did not have air bags. I think one way you can do something and let it be named for the memory of your partner, is becoming involved in some way, teaching road safety to others, especially to youngsters just starting to drive. God bless, take care best regards John

I think that a scanner can clear the DTC (diagnostic trouble code).
It seems to me that if a problem is detected that the light will stay on to alert the driver until cleared.
General Information The supplemental restraint system was designed to provide increased protection in case of an accident for those in the front seat of the car, when used along with the safety belt system. The system MUST be disarmed before any work is performed on or around the supplemental air bag system. The system is an electronically controlled, mechanically operated system. The system contains two basic subsystems: the driver's side air bag module assembly and the passenger side air bag assembly, and the electrical system that connects them. The system consists of:

  • The crash sensors
  • The safing sensor
  • The air bag module(s)
  • The diagnostic monitor
  • The back-up power supply
  • The instrument cluster indicator
  • The sliding contacts (clock spring assembly)
The system is operates as follows: The system remains out of sight until activated in an accident that is determined to be the equivalent of hitting a parked car of the same size and weight at 28 mph (40 km/h) with the vehicle receiving severe front end damage. This determination is made by crash and safing sensors mounted on the vehicle which when a sufficient impact occurs, close their contacts completing the electrical circuit and inflating the air bags. When not activated the system is monitored by the air bag diagnostic monitor and system readiness is indicated by the lamp located on the instrument cluster. Any fault detected by the diagnostic monitor will illuminate the lamp and store a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). Fig. 1: Air bag system component locations — 1990–91 vehicles 84176001.gif

It all depends on the speed you hit tree. BMW can scan computer and track back any faults. Hopefully SRS/check engine light wasn't lit when you were involved in accident.

Lincoln towncar 1999 not starting ive already replaced fuel filter, i have fuel pressure. maybe something wrong with antitheft ? i dont know its driving me crazy please help!!!!

This has become a pretty common problem with the mid to late nineties lincolns. I had the same problem. What I found out from research and trial and error is your battery may be weak. So try replacing your battery. also try resetting your Inertia shut off switch located in the trunk on the drivers side front panel.

Airbags are the safety device that blow up to keep you from dying in a crash.

1992 lincond town car air suspension

It sounds to me like your compressor got killed. What probably happened is that the airbag got a hole or tiny crack in it so the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag killed the compressor. I would recommend going to and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. I added the link below so you can check it out. I hope I was of some help
Good Luck!!!
