Sound like you have a bad fusible link or ground usually located at or near starter but i think this vehihle uses a seperate starter relay so should be close to this a fusible link is just like a fuse to much amperage and it blows check these

    My starter engages but does not fire. lights and all gauges work but does not start.

  • thecranks Aug 01, 2010

    starter has nothing to do with this the fusible links is what provides current supply for junction boxes and what not i,m saying they connect near starter or starter solenoid feed off positive battery terminal some fords in this year range also had a seperate ground cable pig tail coming off battery cable out at end a smaller black cable with round connector make sure still connected

2005 linclon towncar - why will the ac clutch not engage


check the pressures in the system, if they are low it will not engage, it could be a bad connection for the compressor, check the compressor clutch air gap and clutch condition as this can cause a problem.

My air condition work only when I hot wire the compressor clutch. Otherwise it not engaging when I turn on the ac.


You have to insert a can of R134A refrigerant and hose on the low pressure port.
Normally it is the fatter of the two hoses coming from the compre3ssor.It should then kick in with the A/C switch engaged.
If not you may have a bad fuse,switch,compressor,or relay.

I need wiring diagram for1997 Lincoln towncar AC showing ac clutch circut, Clutch will not come in. System has charge, clutch is ok and system puts out cold air when clutch is jumped to battery.


ok near the fire wall you have your dryer on the dryer is a two wire switch for your low pressure. Jump that wire if your compressor comes on then the switch is bad. this is a common problem on these cars

take the pressure switch connector off and jump connector- if clutch engauges you either have bad low pressure switch or are low on freon.

the control unit is no good.i had a similar situation with a 98 tracker,and installed a switch to give it a ground for the compressor relay that comes from the a/c computer module.
it works good and goes on and off with the a/c switch.

Air conditioning comp not turn on


if you used a pressure washer ,you could have caused a leak ,if there is no freon the low pressure switch wont let the compressor turn on,even if you didnt use high pressure,engine degreaser may remove corrosion on the line set or the condenser ,also causing a leak, the high or low pressure switches may still be wet, follow the line set ,fat line (low pressure switch with a plug w/2 wires)unplug it make sure its not still wet inside,do the same to the high pressure switch on the small line,check the fuses ,pull the ac relay make sure there is no water underneath,and the prongs are dry,if the blower fan in the vechile isnt working on 2,3,or 4 speed it wont let the ac turn on,if all that checks out ,turn the fan on high max ac unplug the green wires or wire on the compressor right behind the belt pulley,check for 12v dc,if none,you lost a relay or one of the pressure switches,fuse,maybe broken wire,if 12 v. is there,your clutch coil fried on the compressor pulley,good luck, hope you figure it out

not neccessarly true there could be several reasons for the a/c clutch not to ingage. 1 the clutch relay is bad(it is located in the junction box under the hood,switch it with the heater relay if it kicks on the relay was bad) 2 the system is under charged(the binary switch will sense this and keep the compressor off) 3 a blown fuse fore the climate control(the fuse is located in the panel under the dash on the drivers side) there is a blockage in the system(this will cause the high side pressure to rise to a point where the high pressure switch cuts the circuit. My suggestion is to first check that the wire going to the a/c clutch is not coroded or broken. then check the relay, then have the system recharged provided that there are no leaks. if the guages when hooked up initially show that the low side pressure is 35 psi and the high side is 130-150 psi then you know it was an electrical problem. if those are not the pressure it could be a blockage (most likely in the drier) or the expansion valve is bad( this regulateds the system. hope these options are of help to you good luck and please rate this thanks

Lincoln climate control


Found the fix on another forum - replace the AC clutch relay in the power distribution box under the hood.

This has worked for at least two people with this exact problem so far.
