Question about 1999 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Lighting control module

I have the same problem with a 99 towncar. The lighting control module was bad and it did all kinds of strange things, like messed up my high beams, and my cornering lights, even my radio, but only intermittently. Then if I didn't use the car for 3-4 days, the battery would be dead. After a jump, it worked fine. I replaced the lighting control module and all my problems went away. The part is expensive ($400-$500) and must be programmed by the dealer and it is very specific for each model and model year, but it solved the problem

Low beam not working but high beam is-Pontiac Vibe 2005


I have heard it could be the Daylight Running Light module located under the dash above the brake pedal. The module controls both the daytime running lights and the low beam lights. The high beams are independent of this module.

I have the same problem. I am trying to buy a new module.

My 1991 Caravan headlights won't turn off and the highbeam indicator light stays on. I've been told that the problem is likely the daytime running lights module. Where is this module located in the vehicle...


Sounds more like a stuck high beam relay. Daytime running lights module appeared sometime after '99 year. The relay should be in the fuse compartment. Pull it out to check that it is only the high beam that is on. Pull the low beam relay and place in the high beam location. If it turns on the high beams again, then try the dimmer switch to see if they go out. If that has no effect, then there is a sneak path somewhere that is turning the relay on.

could be lighting control module $$$$$$$ @400
it's above brake pedal area under dash. 6 x 4" approx.
Do high beams work? Flash to pass work?

No high beam headlights 1996 crown victoria


does the flash to pass function work? That uses high beam bulbs.

If yes, I would bet $100 it's the lighting control module. Very expensive. @ $500. Can buy for $250 @ tascafordparts.com.

Sometimes on Ebay for cheap price.

--------------------------------
Lighting Control Module Principles of Operation
NOTE: Due to varying wattage ratings and resulting current draw, certain aftermarket headlamp bulbs may cause the lighting control module (LCM) to shut down the short circuit protection, resulting in the low beams becoming inoperative. Verify that the headlamp bulbs meet Ford specifications.
The lighting control module (LCM) receives inputs from the following:
  • headlamp switch
  • multifunction switch
  • photocell and amplifier
Depending on the inputs received, the LCM will command the headlamps on or off.

Power is supplied to the headlamps through lighting control module Circuit 502 (GY) and circuit protection C in the fuse junction panel. Ground is provided to the headlamp bulb and retainer (13N021) through Circuit 57 (BK).

The lighting control module is located under the instrument panel, to the right of the steering column, under the lower steering column cover.

Removal and Installation
  1. Open hood. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301).
  1. Disengage three pushpins and remove lower driver side intrument panel (04320) finish panel.
  1. Locate lighting control module above accelerator pedal.
  1. Disconnect bottom two eletrical connectors from lighting control module.
  1. Remove two screws retaining LCM to bracket and unclip from bracket.
  1. Remove lighting control module from bracket and disconnect two remaining electrical connectors.
  1. To install, reverse Removal procedure. Check lighting control module for proper operation.
---------------------------------

the module is about 6 inches lng and 4 inches wide and has 3 wire connectors.
