Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car

Lincoln digital dash electrical problem

I have a 96 Lincoln Town Car with the digital dash. Today the dash went blank while I was driving and I could smell something burning. Fuse 18 (10 amp) was blown. I replaced the fuse and it blew again along with a burning smell. Pulled down the cover under the dash and could not see where the smell was coming
from. Fuse is for instrument cluster, clock,A/C control module, radio, & diagnostic connector.
I temporaly replaced fuse with 30 amp; radio and A/C came on but could smell burning so I pulled the fuse. Dash did not come on. I can not afford another car. Does anyone ever had this problem. Thanks Bob

You can take the car to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan.

If you happen to need a digital dash, you can get one at a Salvage yard. Since you mentioned burned wiring, your car insurance may cover some of the repair under fire insurance. Give them a call.

Most likely since the A/C and radio worked, they are okay. The failure could be the dash display.

Digital dash in my 1995 lincoln town car went off when alternater was replaced


I would first check the fuse for the dash, since that should be simple and a cheap fix. If not, the light in the dash may need replacement. The final and most difficult possibility would be a fault in the wiring between the dash lights and the power source.

96 lincoln town car with climatecontrol does notturn off heat


The blend door actuator motor is located under the front center of the dash at the bottom of the windshield. It does require the removal of the dash. I have changed several of them myself. You can usually tell if it is bad by a clicking sound coming from that area of the dash. It is an electrical motor and it is a plastic gear about the size of the tip of your little finger that causes the failure.
