Question about 1993 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

When the anti lock brake light on my 93 lincoln town car comes on, if I am pressing on the brake at the time, makes the brakes grab. It also happens just before the light comes on. I have had the front and rear brake pads replaced and the front rotors replaced. Is there something else I can do? I love my car, but it is scary when this happens. I can't let anyone else in the car now and I don't like to drive it like this.

The abs light on the dash should come on when the abs is working (emergency braking)if it comes on when braking normally(gently)chances are a sensor is gone(replace in pairs,fronts & rears)
abs stops the wheels from locking up in an emergency brake situation,you will feel the grab-release,grab-release on the brake pedal......

What does it mean when raction light stays on and thabs light stays on and the traction wont come on on a 1998 lincoln signature series

Its most likely a bad ABS (anti-lock brake system) speed sensor. ABS pump or modulator assembly. When the light is on, your vehicle does not have the benefit of the ABS and traction control features.

93 Lincoln Town Car. I have to press extremely ******* brake to get car out of park, so hard I am afraid I am going to break something. Is this a solenoid or whatever. I am a woman so my knowledge of cars...

Have some one help you, start the car and have some one stannd behind it and watch the brake lights.
step on the brake normally and see if the brake lights come on, if they do then see if it comes out of park, the most common problem is the brake light switch fails and it does not release shifter. if you step on the brake and the brake lights do not light up then switch is bad , then step on brake hard and see if lights come on if so then again brake switch is bad, the brake light switch when brake pedal is pushed sends power to brake lights and then sends power to shifter release to unlock shifter. good day.

Shift lever lock won't release when brake pedal is

do the brake lights work? most of the time the problem is a broken wire at the brake light switch under the dash on the brake pedal. the ECM does not see the signal from the switch so it won't allow the car to shift from park.

1993 Lincoln Town car 3 years ago on a very HOT day my right front brake started violently grabbing, even without touching the brake. The ABS light comes on intermittently, it usually goes off after...

I had a very similar problem in my 93 town car. I ended up changing the Calipers, rotors, and pads. This stopped the grabbing, but still every once and a while the ABS light would come on and grip the brakes on me. I ended up pulling the ABS relay from under the hood.and the problem has stayed away. The only thing is that now i dont ABS brakes. Its a heavy car tho and i havent had an issue yet. Also, if you decide to do this, the relay way mis marked in my car, when i pulled the ABS relay, the Air shocks went out instead. Had to pull one at a time until the anti lock light came on, then i knew i had it.

Why won't my brake lights come on and allow me to

check the fuse for your brake lights or the brake light switch,the inter lock solenoid on the shift cable reacts from the power at the brake switch.
