Try a couple of things. Disconnect the battery terminal for 10 minutes to see if system reboots better. Use the Keypad and enter the Security code on the door before trying to start it.

If it were driveable I would say to go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. If the car does this several times it would not be the Inertia switch.

It would help if you could determine if you are losing spark or fuel to the engine. The only bolt-on part that controls both is the TPS, Throttle Position Switch. It is located on the drivers side of the airhorn behind all the air filter ductwork. It is the size of a cigarette lighter and has 2 screws and 1 electric connection.

1995 lincoln towncar air bag trouble: How do I reset system after code 12 repair. showing code 52 now.


Are you sure it's a code 52? I'm not seeing a 52 in the code index. Btw, code 12 is that the system passed it's automatic test. You could continue the chase to fix the air, but on a 20 year old car, it maybe a good idea to do an air suspension conversion on your Town Car and be done with it forever.

Did the shop shut off you air suspension switch? How old are the air springs? take off the wheel and check around the bottom of the air spring for rot and cracks. Here is a link I just replace the whole air suspension for $300

My 1995 Lincoln Town Car starts when it wants to


The next time your Town Car fails to start, Try holding the throttle open slightly and cranking the engine. If it starts and will stay running while holding the throttle, it is likely that the Idle Air Control valve will need replaced. The valve is bolted to the upper intake right behind the throttle body.
