If this is all factory equipment, you should not have to find the amp. It should just be a matter of connecting the wires to the factory provided connector where the cd changer should have been installed. The wiring harnesses in these vehicle where all made the same so vehicle that didn't come with certain equipment still had the connectors for them but just didn't get the item. If there is a factory amp installed it is most likely under the back seat or in the trunk area somewhere.

If the disk changer was offered as an option for that car and you are trying to install a factory disk changer. any wiring you need will be there and apparent. when they build a car on the assembly line they install a complete wiring harness for every option that could be installed or has been ordered. if you vehicle has the "premium" sound system there is an amp but it is generally located somewhere away from the stereo itself.

The amp is located in the trunk area. Remove the side panels inside the trunk to access

What can I do to use the factory plugs for install of an after market cd player


try a radio shop that either sells radios and accessories or repairs radios. you should be able to get an adapter that goes between the two so you don`t need to cut and splice.

Heater core leaking


Pretty big job but has to be replaced asap. The fumes/vapors from the heater core will eventually come though the registrars and make you sick and mentally affected. If the floor board is wet under carpet, inside front windshield has oily, hard to get off residue and/or sour bittersweet smell; it's already affecting you if you spend much time in the car. Headaches, blurred vision, anger, dark circles under eyes. The heater core going bad is a common thing for Lincoln Towncars. It will cost around $600 to have repaired and about 6 hours. Also FYI, intake manifold recall for repair has expired for most Towncars but it should be looked at for leaks. The factory installed plastic gasget warps.

Trying to add a VW CD changer from a 1998 NB into a 1999NB.


If it is a factory changer and you are using the factory wirng harness, I'd recommend going through the fusebox and looking to see if there isn't an empty space for a fuse for that purpose - sometimes the fuses are not installed for items not included in the car at the factory, so yes there probably is just a fuse that was never installed....

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
