Question about 1997 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Headlghts on all of time and pwr trunk problems.

I thought the slower working of trunk was caused by an old original battery, so I replaced it Now it doesn't work at all! The 40 amp fuse is good! That was about a month ago. Now all of a sudden my headlights will not turn off, even with switch in off position, and key out of ignition. I can't tell if I have DRL relay or not! I have to remove ground cable to prevent battery discharge.

My 94 Cartier did this once when it had not been driven or started for over a week. I tried the switch and renoved the key. I also had to remove the battery cable to get the lights to go off. The car never did this again. I also called the local LINCOLN dealer about this, but they had never heard of this happening and had no idea what had caused it.

Why won't my car start? no lights interior/exterior.


It seems that the battery is incapable of holding a charge. You might try disconnecting the battery cables and try charging the battery again over night. Reconnect and see if anything works - if nothing works - it's time for a new battery.

TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT WORK ALL THE TIME WITHOUT HOLDING IT... ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS DAMP OUTSIDE. IT WORKS FINE FOR WIPERS AND HEADLGHTS. WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE?


The plate that operates the turn handle when you come out of a turn is controlled by springs. These springs may be broken or what they are attached to may be broken. Best to replace the unit.

Battery draining overnight. Noticed today that my headlghts don'y turn off when parking brake is on. The battery is new. Any ideas?


sounds like you have a draw put a test light between the the positive post on your battery and the cable if the test light goes on then something is not turning off pull each fuse one at a time till the test light goes out when it goes out that is your bad circuit be sure to replace each fuse after you check to see if the test light goes out

2000 vw beetle the pwr windows, pwr trunk, pwr fuel door, pwr mirors, dome lights, and radio won't work. I have checked all the fuses and only one was blown, it is # 14 it says interior lights and central...


The easy part of this problem is knowing what it is, the difficult part is finding where it's shorting out. With the meters of wire and harness it would be discouraging thinking about it. Knowing VW took a lot of time engineering to avoid this simple problems, there are conditions that couldn't prevent this.

First off, have you recently installed an aftermarket part that hooks up to the wiring system e.g. radio, gauges, gps or other electronic accessory? Something added that needed a harness moved to make it fit or needed splicing a wire to power it up?

There are times when doing electrical work, the person doing it doesn't realize while stripping insulation from new wire that a strand of wire fell in a switch, fuse terminal causing a short in it's circuit.
You'd need to clean the fuse area with a clean paint brush to dust off any metal debris. Another way is by simply using a digital VOM with continuity tone to single out which component is causing it to blow the fuse.

Another suggestion is use a VAG 1552 scan tool or equivalent. This will also help pinpoint which component to look at and narrow the search area.

If you're a DIY kind of person and want to know how your vehicle works, wanting to get a little more involved. You'll need a Windows based laptop and purchase a ROSS-Tech software by clicking on the address.

I have a 95 Jag xj6 and my trunk release button nor the key will open the trunk. I thought the valet switch in the arm rest had been activated but the main key wont deactivate it. Any suggestions or is...


We're working on our friends 95 Jag. He took it to a local shop and the gomer calling himself a mechanic started pushing buttons on the console. He pushed the top down button while the top was still connected. The rear windows thought the top was supposed to go down so they started rolling down. They stopped them about halfway down, but couldn't get them back up. But that isn't the problem. Now, we can't get the trunk open. The problem? The trunk is not the original. It came from a junkyard and he has never had a key. So the remote only works on the doors. How in the world do we get that trunk open. Our only thought is to go through the back seat, and that looks like way too much work. Any ideas?
