Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car
I have a 1996 Lincoln Town Car the battery and the alternator has been tested and they say it is good.What else could be the problem?
Some times the bateery seems good. For example, you have to jump the vehicle in the morning, after that, it starts fine all day, but when it sits overnight it drains by itslef and won't start again in the morning. To find out if this is the problem, just disconnect the negative wire on the battery at night and connect it in the morning to see what happens.
The average life of a battery on your type of vehicle is about 5 yrs., less if you live in an extreme climate, in Las Vegas, the average life for a battery is 2 to 3 yrs. Keep that in mind.
Another reason could be a shorted or defective wire, electrical device or switch, loose or corroded wire terminal (especially ground)..
Electrical troubleshooting its very complicated and time consuming, if the battery passes the test, you better off taking your vehicle to an auto electrical shop for diagnose.
