Get the ignition switch checked.The switch internally is not getting towards off mode.Its showing that is off but the internal switch connections are short so its not turning the vehicle off.Remove the ignition switch and ignition lock cylinder and get the ignition switch connections checked with meter.It will show 12 volts in meter.But if the ignition switch and its connections checked ok then the problem for fan the lights and AC is related to short in the electrical connections of ac switch ,the fan relay,fan motor and headlight switch or dimmer switch.But on what you mentioned,it indicates fault towards ignition switch and its lock controls.------------

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Is there any other way to find out which transmission is in my 94 town car with out taking the transmission out or jacking the car up. My transmission is about gone and upon calling the auto parts store,...


There is only 1 transmission for a 1994 Licln Town Car. Its a AODE, Automatic Overdrive Electronic trans. Earlier trans were AOD, non electric. Before that it was a C-6. After the AODE, your transmission, was a 4R70 trans. The trans will need to be rebuilt or replaced with a salvage yard unit if its slipping, or making noises. If you have it rebuilt, make sure you get at least a 3yr/50k warranty. Most salvage yard trans will make it 12m/12k, so if the rebuilder is confident about his or there rebuild, he should give you that. The original one lasted how long? 1-800-950-4644 ext 203, Jeremy can help you. Rockauto.com for just parts. Hope this helps you.

My 94 sububan some time slip even i just replaced trans fluid and filter.What causing it.how can i relace all the trans fluid ?


If you had just replaced the filter and fluid and it was running very well before hand your clutches are very worn. The composition of the clutches wear out dury all the years it has been driven. The fibers that waer away flow with the fluid creating a positive grip for the clutches when operating. Upon removing the old fluild with fresh fluid the trans will start to slip for the old fibers are gone

Engine ck light on wont shift out of low gear


could possibly be the input and or output shaft sensors on the transmission,i suggest replacing both at the same time,they are located on the front of the trans facing the radiator,thay are made of white plastic and thread into the trans they are different so do one at a time so u dont mix them up,hope this helps

94 SL1 , wont accelerate with used tranny put in recently


Check Fluid level first.If that's O.k check to see if it's the correct trans.Physically the SOHC & DOHC Trans Look The Same But they are geared different.If you put a twin cam trans into a single cam car or visversa it will not shift into 2nd 3rd or 4th.MP6 For SOHC MP7 For Twin Cam.Also 93,94 trans for 93,94 olny 95-02 swap.Good Luck Hope This helps
