Question about Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

1996 Lincoln Town Car. The A/C compressor will not engage. Freon is not an issue because I have by-passed the low pressure cycle switch. The control in the car is on "max ac". I have also replaced the A/C relay to no avail. If I provide power to the purple wire going to the compressor, the compressor will engage. I can hear the A/C relay "click" when I installed it, but still the compressor will not engage. The relay does not seem to be closing the circuit to allow power to be directed to the purple wire. what do you think?

Is the solenoid clutch holding on to engage the compressor, if not the relay or the fuse or the sitch is not active. check the connection to the relay.
If solenoid is turning the compressor then there is no pumping and so the cooling does not happen.It can be failure within the compressor, needs an overhauling .

Have a 1988 Lincoln Town Car, have put in new A/C compressor,new drier, new condenser, new hoses, new evaporator & full of freon. But compressor want cycle, what could be my problem???


If the compressor wOnt cycle, it means that the pressure is not correct. How much freon, (and what type) did you put in, and did you PULL DOWN (with vacuum) the system to about -29 inches before putting the freon in? Did you use manifold gauges? If so, what is the high pressure, and what is the low pressure, at what ambient temperature?

My lincon is bloweing nothing but hot air what could be roung


Well for the airconditioner to work you will need freon 134a.You will also have to inspect for leaks at the air conditioning hoses. If your low on freon the system wont turn on if you full of freon then a low pressure switch or high pressure switch or even the airconditioning pump maybe the solution

1998 Town Car A/C Blows Hot Air But Is Charged Up


Hi - There may be 2 separate problems. On my 1991 Lincoln Town Car, there is a Thermal Blower Lockout sensor that disables the heater from blowing until the engine temperature reaches a specific temperature. This way if you have vent or floor settings and 90 degrees set and it is winter, you won't get blasted with cold air. When the vehicle warms up, the TBL circuit enables the climate control to blow the hot air. If you use the flr/def instead of the floor or vent control, the TBL should not prevent the heater from working even with a cold engine. On my car, the TBL went bad and always prevented hot air from blowing on the floor and vent settings, even when the engine was hot. Another thing to check is a thermal limitor resistor. It is designed to cut off the blower at very hot temperatures, except if the blower fan is in the hi setting.

As far as the A/C is concerned, can you verify if the clutch is engaging or not? A rapid cycling of the clutch is an indication of low freon. If you are absolutely sure that you are fully charged on freon, I think there are 2 possible causes: (1) Bad pressure switch on the accumulator is indicating low freon that is telling the compressor not to work; (2) a blocked orifice tube.

1996 lincoln towncar. No a/c compressor engagement unless jumped


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.
