Question about 2002 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

The winshield wipers and steering wheel not working properly

When I start up my lincoln ls 2002 v6, the wipers washing liquid goes off by itself, and I cant control it, and the wipers dont turn on...At times when I drive, the wipers go off by themselves, but they never work when I myself turn them on. Ever since this has been happening my steering wheel gets stiff, making it difficult for me to turn the car. I checked the fluid and it is fine so I'm not sure what the problem is.

I know that my clock spring is bad, do you think this affects my wipers not working?

How can my wipers problem be fixed?

And could my wipers not working possibly affect my steering wheel causing it to stiffen?
Thanks!!!

Sounds like the wiper lever is broke on the inside of the colum.

Where is the horn relay located on a lincoln 2002 ls v8. horn blows where alarm is press...but it will not work when i press the horn button insided the car?


If the alarm makes the horn work, then it is not the relay.
It is the horn contact or slip ring.
You need to take the cover off the steering wheel center.
But this could be dangerous due to air bags.
Disconnect battery first.
Steering wheel might have to come off.
Recommend a shop because most people don't have the tools for pulling steering wheel.

My horn doesn't work in my 02 lincoln ls. is it a blown fuse?


In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury

What liquids go in each resevoir?


Coolant in 50% concentration goes into the coolant overflow bottle. Windshield wiper fluid into the wiper fluid bottle. Power steering fluid into the power steering fluid bottle.
You do not need to add any other fluids to these. Do not add water to the washer fluid bottle for example, if you drive in a climate that would allow it to freeze.

Steering wheel controls


Replace the clock spring, or check all the cabling and plugs first. If you are inexperienced take it to an auto electrician, otherwise do it yourself but disconnect the negative battery terminal for 2 minutes prior to opening the steering wheel to check the plugs, as not doing so could cause the airbag to go off. In addition you can also take out the airbag fuse. Check radio control plugs and close it up again and reconnect everything in reverse order. If that doesn't fix it, then have the clock spring replaced professionally, its too much mucking around if you don't know what you're doing.
