If that fixes the problem, be sure to lube the latch with some of that "Stick Lube" in a chapstick sort of container.

Look and see where the latch arm (on the hood) is setting on the latch(on the body) This is only an estimate, as you lower it and look, then line it up by sight. Have a flash light. The latch can be adjusted some by loosening the bolts. If they still don't line up, Use a hammer and bend the latch arm over to get it aligned. It only bends left and right. Not front to back.

I have a 1992 lincoln town car and replaced alt and battery. on idle its at 14.4 and then soon as i accelerate to about 1500rpms lights dim and voltage drops to 12.2 and battery light comes on let off gas...


I would go back to the power and ground cables. First, you checked grounds and cleaned them. Do you have all the grounds in place. From the battery, you should have a ground from the battery to body, battery to the engine and from the engine to the body. Positive side should be from the battery to the alternator, battery to the starter and battery to the under hood fuse panel. Check these cables also. Since you 14 volts going to 12 volts, I would suspect a engine to body ground or corrosion at the fuse panel plugs/connectors.

The hood latch on my 1992 Lincoln Town Car Executive will not latch. I had to have the hood replaced and I now notice there is no bar in the hood for the latch to hook over.


Use the latching assembly from the discarded hood. I hope it wasnt damaged. Replacement hoods are just sheetmetal. There are a number of accessories that you should recover, such as insulation material, windshield washer piping and nozzles, among other. Remember upon installation of the bar assembly to leave some play in the screws, so, that the bar can move to its aligned position when you first close the hood. Then lift it up again, and tighten the screws. Than you for using Fixya.

2012 camry trunk wont latch close


try to unlock it again and shut it, if that doesnt work loosen the latch and bring it down a little it may be to high up to latch ive seen this on a few new cars, manufacturers dont take the time to adjust them they just bolt them on and if they latch when they slam them then they are good to go

Lincoln towncar 1999 not starting ive already replaced fuel filter, i have fuel pressure. maybe something wrong with antitheft ? i dont know its driving me crazy please help!!!!


This has become a pretty common problem with the mid to late nineties lincolns. I had the same problem. What I found out from research and trial and error is your battery may be weak. So try replacing your battery. also try resetting your Inertia shut off switch located in the trunk on the drivers side front panel.

Nissan sentra 2006 My trunk wont open && I spent 2 1/2 hrs trying to break in from the back seats. trying to reach the seat release but cant. The key or remote wont open it. The car latch wont open...


does the key turn the trunk lock?if not theres one issue right there.the other may be that the valet lever on trunk latch assy. may have inadvertantly been engaged if deck lid was slammed closed.the release solenoid will make noise when activated by fob or lever in car but because of valet being engaged cannot release latch.does key unlock glovebox?if not this may also be a valet key cut.contact nissan dealer to cut regular key.ive seen the slamming the deck lid scenario a million times as the valet lever takes hardly any effort to engage.good luck and let me know how you make out.

My trunk latch on my 1997 Lincoln Town Car, Signature Series, will not pull down. It has no power.


replace the electrionic latch for the pulldown motor, thats the problem its common, i would just replace the whole assembly, but if you know how to take it apart then just do the switch part, if you power up the motor when you take apart you can test the motor part of it, good luck hope this helps.

Trunk does not pull down


Check to see if the fuse has popped to power it, check its eletrical connections by pulling the carpet bit away and seeing if it "looks" ok no obvious damage, See if the latch moves correctly by popping it etc and check if the latch hasnt been bent and your just hammering it further away every time you slam it down.
