Question about 2000 Lincoln Town Car

Why are the dashboard lights dim? When turning on the key the lamp test for the dash board is full bright. But after the motor starts, the dash is dim. It appears to stay the same night and day.

Sounds like an alternator to me. If you are some what mechanically inclined this could be very easy. Take the alternator off and take it to your closest autozone and they will test it for free to confirm.

Dashboard lights will go out randomly. It has done it for short periods before but it did it for 200 miles on hwy in dark.


The sensor is usually located on the top of your dashboard. You might see it if you look into your vehicle through your windshield at your dash.
I have seen( one time ) that a gps was bright enough that it caused the dash lights not to come on because the sensor thought it was light outside.
Or you could have gotten a bad sensor.

Cant get my starter to engage when I turn the key on.


Is the battery fully charged and all cables clean and tight? You can try tapping on starter motor with a blunt object while trying to crank it. If it starts, the starter motor is bad

My lights on my grand cherokee is deem and my inside lights won't go off if my dashboard lights are bright. When I deem my dashboard lights my inside lights can go off


Sounds like your dash light dimmer switch is faulty. It is supposed to allow you to turn off the inside lights and still have the dash lights either bright or dim. Have it checked out and replaced.

Dim Dashboard read


On most vehicles you have a dimmer switch ( not talking about headlights) which you can adjust how bright or how dim the dashboard lights are because some people want them bright and others prefer dim either check your owners manual or check all around for it from drivers seat ( within drivers reach) when you find it if you can't adjust it then you want to consider replacing dash lights or switch.

try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.
