I'd get a voltage reading from battery when engine off, and with engine running, then let us know. Voltage should increase when engine running, showing charge, ( 13-14 volts.) and not be too low (12-12.5 volts) before. It may be something intermittent, or even a loose or dirty connection at battery or other end of cables, so check condition of cables & make sure they are tight.

You can reset the light by disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10min but if it returns, have the charging system checked. A battery light could be an indication of a loose/bad connection (corrosion on calbes/terminals) or an alternator problem. Since you've ruled out a serpentine belt issue (unless is slick/worn and not grabbling) I'm sure it's one of the above. Best of luck with your problem.

If everything is working fine, then you need to decide if it is worth the time and expense of repairing the circuit that leaves the light on when it should be off. I would leave it alone and if the lamp bothers you that much you can remove it or cover it with a piece of black tape.

Clockspring on 1994 lincoln towncar


It should be fine the 1990/1994 dont appear to change much esp in that side no more steering controls are added unto 95 odd But you may find ford may have changed connectors to stop you doing things like that and ruining there sales lol

If your clock spring is buggered your horn wont be working either nor will your cruise control controls.

Try taking the fuse out of your rear window defroster. Also check with the dealer about the recall of cruise controls on Lincolns. Its hard to test some of the systems because of all the timers and gadgets. The trunk pulldown switch, trunk light, and window motors could also be checked.

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
