Question about 2001 Lincoln Town Car
Cannot control my AC/heater blower on my 2001 Lincoln Towncar.
It blows on high speed, I can't even turn it off.
Sounds like your switch contacts are shorted closed.. try disconnecting the switch for inspection and use a volt ohm meter to inspect switch across contacts...

Testimonial: "At first the blower stop working. When I ran a separate ground directly to the fan motor it worked but then I found out I had no control. "
I agree with Jeff, there is a set of contacts that are permamnently stuck closed.
Your 2001 Town Car should have EATC (Electronic Automatic Temperature Control) This means that the blower speed is not controlled by manual switches, instead it is controlled automatically in an attempt to maintain a desired temperature.
The EATC in the dash board sends a signal to the blower controller which is located in the engine compartment of the car. The contacts that are welded shut are in the relay on the blower controller. This relay is used to bypass the transistor when the highest speed is selected. Since the relay has bypassed the transistor, slower speeds can not be attained.
It is possile to repair your blower controller, however it is likely that other components may fail on the same assembly in the future. If you have already gone through the effort to remove the part, you may as well replace it.
