SOURCE: I have a 2001 lincoln Navigator The overdrive kept flashing

one question at a time, the OD flashes to let u know that the transmission control module has detected a fault in the trans, this is useualy slipping, u may not even feel it. Have it tested for trouble codes.
As for the AC, is the system fully charged, does the compressor run?

Look at the swith on the brake pedal, it shoud have two green wires on it. Make sure it is not melted or the wire is broken. If it is damaged you can connect the 2 wires together to get it into gear, but this should be temporary as it bypasses the neutral safety switch.

According to Haynes Auto Repair Manual, section on automatic transmissions, the 1994 Towncar has the AODE transmission
Baumann Electronic Controls website
URL: http://www.becontrols.com/tech/ch1alphabet.htm
has following:
The Automatic Overdrive (AOD) transmission was introduced in 1980 as Ford's first four-speed automatic overdrive transmission.
The AOD-E transmission is essentially a beefed-up electronically-controlled version of the AOD.
If this doesn't answer your question, you might troll around the website.

I have a 99 Lincoln town car signature series when I start the car it has overdrive on ..and I have to press the button to turn it off is that normal?


Yes. The DEFAULT is on. If you turn it off, it will turn back on if you turn the ignition switch off and back on again. The only reason you would want it off is if you are towing a trailer. In this case, you must turn it off each time you turn the ignition switch on to prevent transmission damage.

The only other time you would want to turn it off (towing or not towing) is if you are climbing a LONG STEEP hill - like in the mountains, and the transmission is shifting in and out of overdrive continuously.

I have a 99 lincoln town car and for some reason my park lights and tail lights stop working but i have headlights and brake lights and 4 ways. can you help


a_carradine,

Chances are you have a bad bulb. Change all bulbs for the parking and tail lights, making sure as well that they are the correct format (i.e. 1156, 1157 etc).

I suggest contacting a local auto parts dealer for specific indications for these bulbs. They will let you know what correct bulbs to use. You will want to check the fuse panel and make sure the fuses for these are not blown or missing.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance with this matter.

For a 1991 lincoln town car are you supposed to put the drive lever in the position of the d with the circle around it or the large D. hope this makes sense


you will run it with the circle D,this is over drive for better gas mileage,and if your going down a hill or snow driving use just the D,this will help hold the car back

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
