In the fuse box under the dash on the left side of the steering column. I believe it a 30 Amp fuse but I forget the position number. It is also the fuse for the engine code reader plug.

Probably so. Check in this order: Blown fuse (95% chance of being your problem), loose wires, shorted out lighter receptacle.

Hi, my lincoln town car 96's ac only doesn't blow cool air, the freon is full, and the heater works fine, i wonder why is that. also the cigarrette lighter is not working, so basically if I try to conect...

It sounds like it will be a fuse, it is unlikely to be a coincidence that the cigarette lighter is not function as well. One fuse probably covers both these items, replace that fuse and they should both work once more.

Cant locate fuse box for cigarette lighter

The fuse you are looking for is in the instrument panel fuse box #23 with a 20 amp fuse.
The instrument panel fuse box is located behind the instrument panel to the left of the steering column.
It also powers the power supply to the onboard diagnostic computer plug.
Hope this helps you out.

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
