Where is the leveling switch on a 1999 lincoln


There is a sensor, looks like a tiny shock that runs from the watts link above the rear axle to the body. On the driver side of the differential I believe. 1990-1997 was adjustable, 1998 on was not I beleive.

My 1998 lincoln town car, the station were it tells u the temp and heat ac is out changed fuse nd it keeps blowing now i put a bigger fuse it held but eventually blew now my speedomader doesn't wo


From the sound of your problem I would say that you have a short in the system.It is not uncommon to find the small compressor that lifts the back shocks so badly worn and seized that needs to be replaced.Just in use it creates a lot of moisture and tends to rust out.There used to be a trick with the right-hand door switch all left hand if you're in America, all you had to do was pushed to switch in an out in three seconds three times and it would produce a code e.g. a number of flashes of its warning light.The later models properly have a similar set up.I will delve into it.Or maybe somebody reading this already knows the codes.Regards

1998 Lincoln Town Car ONLY CENTER BRAKE LIGHT IN REAR WINDOW WORKING. I'VE CHANGE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH. STILL NO LEFT OR RIGHT BRAKE LIGHT.


If the hight mount brake light is working , then your switches , fuses , relays , are OK . Most likely problem is that the bulbs themselves are burnt out , or there is a broken or loose wire.

How do I replace the rear shocks on my 97 Lincoln Town Car


Is there a spring on the outside of the shock???? If so then it is really a strut and you will have to take it to a qualified service dealer. If no spring, it is pretty easy to do. Jack up the car, put jack stands under the rear axle, remove the nut on the bottom of shock and the bolts on the top and slide the shock out. Install the top of the shock first (if a gas shock) when you cut the wire tie that is holding the shock compressed, you have to line it up with the bottom bolt as it is coming down.

Sounds like shocks/struts. Usually if they start sagging it's because of a problem in the suspension, like shocks or struts.

How to take rear shocks off of a 98 lincoln town car ?


Hello
You need a long reach 15mm or 17mm spanner, if you turn your air ride of jack the rear of the car look just over the rear wheel you will see the top of the shock, but if it turns then just cut the plastic cover on the shock & use mole grips to hold & turn the shock this should take about 25 mins to do the whole job both sides.

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
