Ford has some problems with their brake switches. Call a dealer with your vin and see if it's covered under a recall.

Good luck on the Limo part. Ford didnot build the limo part and there a numerous manufacturers that did. I doubt they will be able to assist you with a car that old. Find the build tagfor the builder and contact them if they are still around.

MAKE SURE TIRES ARE ALL THE SAME SIZE FIRST OF ALL,NEXT MAY HAVE A SPEED SENSOR NOT OPERATING PROPERLY OR BENT OR MISSING EXCITER RING ON FRONT HUB OR REAR AXLE. EITHER WAY THERE IS AN ABS FAULT OR A DIFFERENCE IN WHEELSPEED ON ONE OF THE FOUR WHEELS CAUSING TRAC LIGHT TO ILLUM. VEHICLE THINKS YOU ARE LOSING TRACTION AND APPLYING ABS AND MISFIRING VEHICLE TO SLOW DOWN UNTIL TRACTION IS RECOVERED

SOURCE: 1997 lincoln town car 4.6 with a p0430 fault code

I will make an assumption here, we know what the root word means. This code was extracted from the computer by? What this is telling you one of 2 things: The Bank 2 oxygen sensor down stream of the catalytic converter (there are 2 converters, one for each bank of cylinders on the 4.6ltr engine) is bad and/or that the Bank 2 catalytic converter is no longer doing the job it was designed to do. Simply, Catalysts wear out. They are good for approx 100,000 miles (as required by Federal Law). Again, I assume that the reason the intake manifold was replaced was because it had a crack in one, or more, of the runners? (part that feeds the head of a manifold). It may have taken a while to find this as being the cause of why the car running incorrectly, maybe rough. This means, that during the time the car was being driven with the problem, the amount of unburned, or not within spec exhaust gases, coming off the side of the engine affected by the intake issue was higher than normal. This out of balance level of exhaust gases were being dumped into the converter on that side of the engine, thus causing the converter to have to run hotter, work harder, or even at the time the gas was being processed through, causing deposits to be formed in the converter, thus shortening it's life span. The Bank 1 side of the engine, apparently, did not have the issue and it's catalytic converter's life was not affected. I hope this makes sense to you.

Schematic_Diagram 93 lincoln town car tail lights and license plate light.


Sounds like either your wiring from the Light switch is bad or the Light switch itself is bad. Check with your Owners manual to see if the "Parking lights" have a separate fuse.

Your tail and License plate lights would light with either the Headlights or the "Parking" light selected at the switch as would the front parking lights. If all lights except the headlights are out, your problem is closer to the light switch than at the mounting points of each Parking light or License plate light.

This is one case where you will not know if a dead wire off of the switch is dead because of a bad switch or a bad wire. You would have to detach the harness at the switch, test the wire bundle or jump the switch with power to see how it distributes power through the Harness. It will take a lot of time to rule out the switch. It may be cheaper to replace the switch and then work from there.

A brake light fuse keeps popping. Also we started it last night and wire harness caught on fire. The wires are not bare and some of the harness is melted.


hi,
your either going to have to either get a new harness or go to the junkyard and cut one out and resplice. get a haynes or chilton for the lincoln now and study the wiring or go to autozone for colors(its free to sign up and look stuff up) your going to have to find the harness in the trunk and figure out where the short occured along the line. sounds like someone prob put a 30 amp in the brake lights and cooked that wire. you may have to make a new dedicated brake light line with a relay out of a fog light set or eqivalent. I wouldnt use the old brake light wire. carry a fire extinguisher now. dont drive it with a cooked harness. if its a 3.8 v6 keep the oil changed and buy an upscale filter(wix) .

The brake must be applied before you can shift out of park.There is a switch under the dash at the top of the brake pedal that is activated when you press the brake pedal. I've had the wires come off the switch on my lincoln.

Transmission stuck in park


check and see if the brake light work, if not replace the brake light switch, they are a problem in this year, also make sure the wires to the swithch are not broken inside the plastic insulator near the switch, use a 12 volt test light to check the switch which is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is connected to..

Brake lights blows fuses


Please check the brake light wiring there must be somewhere where the live wire is touching the body (earth -) and thus the blowing of the fuses.
Since the plug in had melted so must have the wires insulation top melted somewhere and its now shorting.
Hope this helps.

Look at the swith on the brake pedal, it shoud have two green wires on it. Make sure it is not melted or the wire is broken. If it is damaged you can connect the 2 wires together to get it into gear, but this should be temporary as it bypasses the neutral safety switch.

This problem is caused by the brake light switch being either defective or more likely the wires at the switch are broken, the switch is on the pedal arm under the dash.
