There is a manual 3 position switch at the light that could have shorted out by itself. Check it with an ohmmeter after you have disconnected it.

    The way the door switches work is that they are a normally open ground.
    That means when the switch at the light is in the postition where the door switches work, the light has to already have power all the time.
    So then you must have a short in the ground side of the light.
    This could be where a wire has rubbed though on a sharp metal edge, or it could be something like a keyless entry controller.
    Unfortunately to find the short one has to conduct some sort of search pattern, like either linear or binary. It would help if you could go to a salvage yard and see where the ground wire from the light goes.
    It probably goes to one door switch first, and there splices and continues on to each door switch.
    If you knew which one was first, you could cut the wire there, and see if the light goes out.
    If not, then you know someone spliced into the wire before that, for the keyless entry. In which case you would know which way to follow the wire back, to see what was between you and the light.
    Another option is to go to the keyless entry control unit, and see if you can figure out what wire could be the ground for the interior lights. If identifiable, then it could simply be disconnected and taped. Replacing the keyless control module itself would probably be prohibitively expensive. But disconnecting it, at least temporarily, could help determine the cause of the problem.

Locked keys in 1999 lincoln town car executive and no keyless entry. can I gain entrance without an expensive locksmith?


Hello Jennifer Jackson...

No... even LINCOLN windows are harder to break
(sorry... your LINCOLN is pretty secure).

Worse... the best price I've paid to get a double sided
PATS (passive anti-theft system) key cut = $6.

Bring your own key... But this was all about the price of PREVENTING your current situation... (oops).

If your ONLY key is truly "inside"...
Your goose is pretty much cooked... The cost of
the LOCKSMITH is pretty trivial compared to your
alternatives... Dealers will zing you MUCH BETTER
than your "expensive locksmith"...

But what ever you do... (my recommendation)... Since
you prefer not to be prepared... (no door code or FOB)
Don't pass on the opportunity to have that same SMITHY
at least tell you about your door code POSSIBILITIES
or at least program a remote FOB for you ...

A RESPONSIBLE "expensive locksmith" will
explain the WISDOM of NEVER having less than 2 (TWO) transponder keys. (by reading your owners manual you can program the FOBs yourself (FREE).

How do you manage the "no" keyless entry...?
I remain pretty sure the number pad... & KEY FOB
(wireless transmitter) were standard equipment...

2 SPARE keys minimum... ALWAYS.

How do you program the transmitter on a 1996 Lincoln Town Car?


1. Enter 5-digit permanent entry code into the keyless entry keypad.
2. Within 5 seconds of pressing last button of code, press the 1/2 button. All doors will lock then
unlock confirming you are in programming mode.

3. Press any button on first Keyless Remote within 5 seconds of pressing the 1/2 button. Locks will
cycle to indicate succesful programming.

4. If you are programming more than one Keyless Remote (Including any exsiting remotes) Press
any button on second keyless remote within 5 seconds of previous remote. Locks will cycle again
to indicate succesfull programming. (If the keypad light goes out before all remotes are
programmed the entire process must be repeated).

5. Press the 7/8 and the 9/0 buttons simultaneously on the keypad to exit program mode.

What would you do when your 1996 lincoln town car doors won't lock with the key. And the trunk won't open.


How can a lock not lock or unlock with a physical key? Maybe the cylinders are frozen? Try squirting a little oil into the locks.
1996 Town Cars have keys and keyless entry. The physical keys are two, an ignition key and a door key. You can't use the door key in the ignition, nor the ignition key in the door. They aren't interchangeable.
The default key code for keyless entry is posted on the right trunk hinge, inside the trunk.

I have 1992 Lincoln Towncar. I can use the keyless


You probably have a bad hazard switch.

For the code,
1. Look on the deck lid arms for a small tag with the permanent code.
2. If you purchased new, call selling dealer to see if they have it recorded on the invoice.
3. Look in the glove box owner manual package for a credit card size plastic card with the code number.
4. Pay dealer 1/2 hour labor charge to retrieve the code with their diagnostic tool. Confirm price ahead of time.
5. Look on keyless entry module for the tag with the code.

For 1994 town car, module is behind glvoe box. Not sure for 1992, sinnce 94 was a new model design.
