    i found the problem..i double checked the fuses under the driver side dash..yellow 20 amp fuse was burnt..i replaced the fuse,dash and tail lights worked again..i checked the wires and the license plate light (wires)were tore up..the licence plate wires was shorting out my fuse..i traced my tail light wires,i was going to re-wire my tail lights with a push buton switch..on the driver side tail lights,you find the brown wire(it controls all your tail lights),trace it about 8-inches away from the lights,slice into it,atatch a wire to it,run it to the battery put a fuse on the wire and a switch..that will get your tail lights on for sure..the tail lighit uses 3-wires on the bulb.brown wire is hot wire for tail lights,black wire is ground for tail light,the other wire forgot the color is hot wire for break lights...get a light tester and check it out...

1991 lincoln town car - tail light and dash lights not working

These shops must be stupid did not one of them check your Main head light switch?

Ford was silly wihen they designed it Power goes to the head lamp switch, back through to the lights so the switch gets verryyy hot and being a 91 towncar the part is well past its life span to!

You should be able to get a replacement part cheap enough or go to local junk yard if you feel lucky!
