2000 lincoln continental signal and hazard blinking lights not blinking

Do you know what a lighting control module is ?
Turn Signal and Hazard Lamps The turn signal system consists of:
  • turn signal miniature bulbs (13465)
  • lighting control module
  • multi-function switch (13K359)
  • indicator bulbs in the virtual image instrument cluster (10849)
  • circuit wiring and circuit protection
Turn signal system operates as follows:
  • The multi-function switch is protected by fuse junction panel Fuse 3 (10A). This fuse is hot in RUN.
  • Circuits 104 (LB/O) and 105 (R/W) connect lighting control module to the left and right turn signal switches of the multi-function switch.
  • Ground is provided to the lighting control module and the turn signal miniature bulbs through Circuit 57 (BK).
  • Turn signal functions are performed by double filament bulbs in lamp assemblies located next to the headlamps.
  • The turn/hazard function utilizes the second filament of the appropriate bulb(s).
  • With the multi-function switch in the right turn position, power is supplied to the RH front and rear turn signal miniature bulbs and the RH turn indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • With the multi-function switch in the left turn position, power is supplied to the LH front and rear turn signal miniature bulbs and the LH turn indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • Do you know what diagnostic trouble codes are ?
Section 17-01: Lighting, Exterior 1997 Continental Workshop Manual DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING Procedure revision date: 07/29/1996 Turn Signal Lamps/Hazard Warning Flasher Lamps
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer's concern by operating the turn signal/hazard flasher lamps to duplicate the condition.
  1. Inspect to determine if one of the following mechanical or electrical concerns apply:

    VISUAL INSPECTION CHART Mechanical Electrical
    • Damaged multi-function switch.
    • Circuitry open/shorted.
    • Fuse junction panel fuses:
      • 1 (10A)
      • 3 (10A)
      • 7 (15A)
      • 13 (15A)
      • 19 (10A)
      • 20 (10A)
      • 25 (10A)
      • 31 (15A)
    • Power distribution box Fuse 16 (20A)
    • Bulb open.
  1. If inspection reveals an obvious concern that is readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with Inspection and Verification.
  1. If a concern remains after the inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the lighting control module, GO to Pinpoint Test CA. If the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test is passed for the lighting control module, retrieve continuous DTCs and execute Self Test Diagnostics for the lighting control module to retrieve current DTCs.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved, go to the Lighting Control Module (LCM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the lighting control module cannot be accessed by the NGS, go to Pinpoint Test CA.
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop. Unless you have a scan tool that can check for DTC'S an know how to use a wiring diagram an DMM - digital multi-meter to test electrical circuits .

Where is the turn signal flasher on a 2000 lincoln towncar signature series

Has no flasher !
Lighting Control Module
This vehicle uses a lighting control module (LCM). This eliminates the electronic interference and heat associated with the thermo-electric devices used previously. The LCM:
  • Is a microprocessor based module that controls several vehicle subsystems.
  • Responds to electrical input signals from various switches, sensors, and external modules.
  • Is located on the LH side of the instrument panel.
  • Subsystem functions include:
    • Headlamps with autolamps.
    • Turn signal lamps/hazard flasher lamps.
    • Cornering lamp.
    • Parking lamp.
    • Daytime running lamps (DRL) (Canada only).
    • Courtesy lamps.
    • Demand lamps.
    • Battery saver.
    • Backlighting.
    • Interfaces with the driver door module (DDM) via SCP for illuminated entry
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the turn signal/cornering/hazard lamps.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage; refer to the following chart:
Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Multi-function switch
  • Blown fuse(s)
  • Damaged wiring harness
  • Loose or corroded connection
  • Turn signal/hazard bulb(s)
  • Lighting control module (LCM)
  1. If the inspection reveals obvious concern(s) that can be readily identified, repair as required.
  1. If the concern remains after the inspection, connect the scan tool to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel and select the vehicle to be tested from the scan tool menu. If the scan tool does not communicate with the vehicle:
    • check that the program card is properly installed.
    • check the connections to the vehicle.
    • check the ignition switch position.
  1. If the scan tool still does not communicate with the vehicle, refer to the scan tool manual.
  1. Perform the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTIC TEST. If the scan tool responds with:
    • CKT914, CKT915 or CKT70 = ALL ECUS NO RESP/NOT EQUIP, refer to Section 418-00 .
    • NO RESP/NOT EQUIP for lighting control module (LCM), go to Pinpoint Test A.
    • SYSTEM PASSED, retrieve and record the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), erase the continuous DTCs and perform self-test diagnostics for the LCM.
  1. If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to the LCM Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.

2000 gmc sierra blows right turn sugnal fuse

I have replaced the corroded and burnt front signal socket as I was told that could be part of the problem. Now another person tells me that if I do not have the oem flasher unit this might be the culprit.?????? Rather then listening to people telling you it's this or that , if you can't view a wiring diagram an use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an test the circuits an find the problem , your best bet mite be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop. There are a lot of training videos on youtube for leaning how to trouble shoot these type problems . This is how professional technicians learned !
Electric Testing Techniques You Need to Know
Mastering Voltage Drop Testing with Pete Meier and Jerry Truglia

If the fuse blowes you have a direct short to ground on the B+ voltage supply circuit for the right turn signals .
Free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine . Under system click on lighting , then under subsystem click on exterior lighting . Click the search button then the last blue link..
When does the fuse blow ? As soon as you turn right signal on ? As soon as you install a new fuse ?
How to test for short to ground ohmmeter vs test light Don't rely on others , learn to test ,not guess .

I have a 2000 Lincoln Town Car. All of the turn signal lights have quit working. How do I track down the problem?

Is the Lighting Control Module bad? Is the Multi-Function switch bad? Your asking questions that can't be answered without doing electrical circuit testing . You could replace those parts an get lucky an fix it , but suppose you replace them an it doesn't fix the problem ?
Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? what it's for ? Do you have a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an know how to use it ?
Pinpoint Tests
  • Are any DTCs retrieved?
Yes If DTC B1873 is retrieved, GO to H2 .

If DTC B1342 is retrieved, CLEAR DTC and PERFORM LCM on-demand self-test. REPLACE the LCM if DTC B1342 is retrieved again. REFER to Section 419-10 . TEST the system for normal operation.

No GO to H2 . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Where is the fuse for the turn signals on a lincoln continental

Without knowing the year, I'll guess that it's newer than 1998. The turn signals aren't controlled by a flasher. They are controlled by the lighting control module. It's located under the dash, driver's side, just about behind the ash tray. It's held in by 7mm nuts and 2 plastic tabs. Hope I've helped. If so, please rate my assistance and leave a comment. In the event it's older than a '98 and isn't controlled by the module. Turn on the emergency flashers and follow the clicking. That will lead you to the fuse box where you will find a round "DOT 3" fuse/relay.

Trailer Lighting Kit

Do u have a 4,5,6,or 7 way (wire) system? If it's 4 way it allows basic hookup for 3 lighting functions:
GREEN is right turn signal and stop light, YELLOW is left turn signal and stop light, BROWN is license, and side marker lights, WHITE is ground.

5way is same as above, but adds a BLUE wire for brake signal or aux. power. Its used on pop up campers, utility and boat trailers.

6way (rectangle plug) green=right turn signal, yellow=left turn signal, brown=taillight, white=ground, red and blue can be used for brake control or auxilary. Used on small motorcycle trailers, snowmobile trailers, utility trailers.

6way Round Plug, same as above, but blue is electric brakes, and black (sometimes red,) 12v; note:sometimes red/black need to be reversed w/ blue to suit the trailer.

7way adds an additional pin at plug in for 12volt power or back up lights. Whoa! hope that answers your question w/out confusing u. Let me know if u need more info.
