Question about 2003 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Electronic problems with the dash display

I have a 2003 Lincoln Town Car. When I start up in the morning, everything is fine, but after a while, the electronic dash goes blank. The speedometer and odometer show dashes, etc. and all the warning lights are on. The car doesn't have any performance problems, just this electronic one. I checked the battery connection to the fuse box and it's nice and tight. Any idea what could be the problem?

Your digital dash is loosing its ability to illuminate,it's dying.Your dealer can have it repaired or you will have to get a new one.One more thought,you can replace it with one from the junk yard,but you should have it documented as to the miles on yours and the different miles on the one you would buy.

2003 Lincoln Town Car Executive, the a/c warms up when driven 60 mph and above. It works fines from 55 and below. Why.

Sounds like a problem with airflow thru the condenser. It could be an issue with the fan clutch. If it is not free-wheeling properly, it can restrict airflow thru the radiator and condenser. This will prevent proper removal of heat from the return refrigerant and reduce the cooling.

Sounds like electronic / lose wire problem. Some wires near the dash are not connecting properly. When it is not working, shake those wires and see if anything changes.

1988 Town Car Signature won't start mornings -- fine otherwise

When you first start the vehicle in the morning, try turning the key to ON for ten seconds before starting the vehicle. If your engine then starts immediately, replace the fuel pressure regulator. If it does not solve the problem, perform a major tune-up.
If your CHECK ENGINE light is illuminated, check ODB codes to determine fault.
The 5.0L engine in the 1988 Town Car is one of the most reliable engines ever built by Ford, mostly because it is adept at masking problems for a long time before a failure happens. You will find that most failures you encounter will either be fuel-related (usually a clogged fuel filter) or burned spark plug wires.

Does it feel like it is missing? Or going to die on you? Could possibly be Engine coolant sensor. What does the temperature read when it acts up? Could also be ignition coil, or electronic spark control module.
