    There is no display and all other functions are working properly, including the CD changer and Tape (cassette) player. I can remove the radio but have limited test equipment.

    The display just quit lighting but all other functions work properly, including the CD changer and tape (cassette) player. I can remove and dis-assemble the radio but test equipment is limited to a multi-meter.

The display module alike a light bulb. Eventually it will burn out. A replacement is needed if you want the display to operate. Any Ford/Lincoln Mercury dealer can assist you on the cost

Hi,

This is most likely an Internal Radio Failure. If you have a False / No Display, You need to send the Unit for Repair. There is no User Fixable Option.

I am afraid, but that's the Only solution.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    I agree you have a Multi Meter and you could Test the Equipment. More often it is either LCD bulb or it could be Faulty Board as Most of the Display is Governed by Board.If the Board is Faulty, it is Not Serviceable. You need to Replace that and send it for Repair. You could Dissemble it and check the Bulb.

    Remember, this would Void the Warranty, if any.In case, if you are no sure how to Dissemble and Test it, it could Damage the Unit rather than Repair.

    Let me know, if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks
    for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Need the amperage for a 1999 lincoln town car fuse box and what each fuse is for


Hello, There are some good sources of info on the Web using a Google search. Type in 1999 Lincoln Town Car fusebox. There are some sites which expand the info to include photos, a Wiring chart, fuse ratings, positions, and colors.

They are free. The only thing to watch for is when a group of snapshots are displayed for your question, they may be lumped into a pile of snapshots from other vehicles.

The benefit of enlarging the snapshots is that when you wait for the slow display enlargement, it is completely legible.

It can be dirty or faulty disk,but if that's not the case the problem relates to cd player lens.Its not reading the disk.The inside lens which reads and detects the cd is either got dirty or its faulty and unit has to be replaced.-------So whether is dirty lens or faulty that can be confirmed once the unit is inspected.Try running lens cleaning cd in your cd player unit and see if that is helping.========For more help i suggest refer the help links mentioned below:------

Does the lincoln town car serie ejecutiva have a cd player?


The Town Car Executive series is the bottom line of the Town Cars.
It has the fittings to put a CD Player in...but most did not have them (unless specially ordered)

The next series up...is the Signature Series and has a 50 / 50 chance of having a CD player.
After that, the Presidential Series (special ordered series had the players)
Then top of the line Lincoln Town Car is the Cartier...with all the bells & whistles...and CD Player.

If ya have one...its in the trunk usually on the drivers side just below the "air ride" switch.

Pick up a set of Din tools from your local auto parts store. These are used to remove the radio from the dash. Slide unit out & check the plugs.
