SOMETIMES CAR WILL NOT START WHEN KEY IS TURNED IN IGNITION

I HAVE A 1999 LINCOLN TOWN CAR EXECUTIVE. SOMETIMES, ON A FEW OCCASSIONS, WHEN I PUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITON AND TURN IT TO START IT, THE DASH LIGHTS GO BLACK AND THE CAR WON'T START. AFTER A FEW TIMES OF TURNING THE KEY, THE CAR WILL START. THIS HAPPENS WITH BOTH KEYS. I HAD THE CHIP INSIDE THE KEYS CHECKED AND THEY ARE BOTH GOOD, ANY SUGGESTIONS ?

    THE CAR HAS 27,000 MILES. THE ENGINE MAKES NO NOISE WHEN I TURN THE KEY AND TRY TO START IT. THE BATTERY IS NEW. WHEN IT DOES START IT RUNS LIKE NEW. THERE ARE NO OTHER ISSUES WITH THE CAR..

SOURCE: Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

SOURCE: Wont start, gives error code IN 02 on dash

I had the same problem with my 94 jetta, I would also have the alarm turn on as I connected the battery, if you lower the fuse box being careful not to disconnect anything, there is a box to the upper driver-side aria(that is if you are laying on your back looking up under the dash) this is the alarm control unit, there should be a white label on the wires indicating so (think it says alarm in German) theres a 6 pin(wire) connector and a 10 pin. unplug both connectors and look at the 6 pin connector. There is numbers where the wires are located on the connector, if you take a piece of wire and "bridge" wires 5 and 6 (The largest wires on the connector, red/red w/black stripe) your starter should work, any problem with the alarm system can cause the starter to be disabled. after bridging the wires or simply connecting them do not plug anything back into the alarm box, after this you standard vehicle alarm will be disabled permanently, but you will be able to start your car. If this dose not fix the problem you may have a defective starter, hope this helps.

I had the same problem, after having the car towed to four Seasons, it was discovered that the electrical portion of the ignition switch was defective. Works like a charm. Part number 61 32 8 356 026 Hope this will help.

Locked keys in 1999 lincoln town car executive and no keyless entry. can I gain entrance without an expensive locksmith?


Hello Jennifer Jackson...

No... even LINCOLN windows are harder to break
(sorry... your LINCOLN is pretty secure).

Worse... the best price I've paid to get a double sided
PATS (passive anti-theft system) key cut = $6.

Bring your own key... But this was all about the price of PREVENTING your current situation... (oops).

If your ONLY key is truly "inside"...
Your goose is pretty much cooked... The cost of
the LOCKSMITH is pretty trivial compared to your
alternatives... Dealers will zing you MUCH BETTER
than your "expensive locksmith"...

But what ever you do... (my recommendation)... Since
you prefer not to be prepared... (no door code or FOB)
Don't pass on the opportunity to have that same SMITHY
at least tell you about your door code POSSIBILITIES
or at least program a remote FOB for you ...

A RESPONSIBLE "expensive locksmith" will
explain the WISDOM of NEVER having less than 2 (TWO) transponder keys. (by reading your owners manual you can program the FOBs yourself (FREE).

How do you manage the "no" keyless entry...?
I remain pretty sure the number pad... & KEY FOB
(wireless transmitter) were standard equipment...

2 SPARE keys minimum... ALWAYS.

I have a 2001 Lincoln town car, executive, 4.6 motor... I usually hear the fuel pump hum when I turn key on, not so now... Now when I turn key to start and wait a few seconds, I don't hear fuel pump when...


It does sound like the fuel pump. You could try changing fuel filters first. You should never run your car with less than a quarter of a tank, it sucks dirt particles off the bottom of the tank. It messes up fuel injectors as well. Always run a Lucas fuel treatment at every oil change. Good Luck.

Does the lincoln town car serie ejecutiva have a cd player?


The Town Car Executive series is the bottom line of the Town Cars.
It has the fittings to put a CD Player in...but most did not have them (unless specially ordered)

The next series up...is the Signature Series and has a 50 / 50 chance of having a CD player.
After that, the Presidential Series (special ordered series had the players)
Then top of the line Lincoln Town Car is the Cartier...with all the bells & whistles...and CD Player.

If ya have one...its in the trunk usually on the drivers side just below the "air ride" switch.

1988 lincoln car will mot start battery is fine


Check your starter relay, it is mounted to the fenderwell near the battery. On the relay there is a terminal labeled "S" take that wire loose and check for power when the key is turned to start, if there is power you need a relay, if there is none you have and ignition switch or safety neutral switch problem.
