Dash lights and tail lights I have a 1991 Lincoln Town Car. The dash lights and tail lights both stopped working at the same time. Fuses look OK??? I have found many people on this sight with the same problem, but no solutions yet =(

    So all I have to do is replace the headlight switch and that should do the trick?

  • bridget66 May 19, 2009

    When the head light switch is on.... the head lights, brake lights, back-up lights and turn signals all work. But the tail lights and instrument lights do not work. All bulbs and fuses have been checked and are working.

    emergency flashers also work

    Lemme understand this...



    No tail lights. Is that no tail lights when you turn the headlight switch on, or do you mean no brake lights when you depress the brake?



    How 'bout turn signals? Do they work? How 'bout the emergency flashers?



    How 'bout back up lights?

It's a bad headlight switch.

    Yes, that should resolve your issue.

    I replaced the headlight switch and found that it got very hot. The white wire going into the connector is almost melted through. What do I need to do to replace this and since I think there is still a short somewhere causing the overheating what should I look for there?

1991 lincoln town car - tail light and dash lights not working


These shops must be stupid did not one of them check your Main head light switch?

Ford was silly wihen they designed it Power goes to the head lamp switch, back through to the lights so the switch gets verryyy hot and being a 91 towncar the part is well past its life span to!

You should be able to get a replacement part cheap enough or go to local junk yard if you feel lucky!

One of the tail light bulbs can be shorted internally.  Replace the tail light bulbs first.  Try this cheap fix first.

Fuse Box Diagram


Fuses usually are labeled. However, sometimes sub-systems are not labeled. The quickest way to find your fuse is to get a volt meter or test light and check the fuses. With the key on (to energize all circuts),and the meter or probe (-) end connected to a good ground, probe into the small spaces at each end, on the back of each fuse. (if you look at any fuse while removed, you can see how esch connector spade is open on the back side) You should have 12volts at each space. Any fuse that has no voltage should be replaced. If fuse blows immediately, there is a short in that system somewhere.
