I have a 95 that had the same problem. After the dealer replaced most of the engine, it turned out to be a Power train module relay that cost about seven dollars. Your problem might be different, but it seems the relays get hot and will have to cool down before they allow the engine to start.

1983 lincoln town car fuel pump comes on for 2 seconds thats it then has no power.


It needs several signals to continue running. You do have a fuel pump Relay which can kick out.

Check the fuel pressure test port to see if pressure is maintained. The crankshaft position sensor sends info to regulate fuel pressure.

Cant hear fuel pump when really cold and wont start


I think I would try a new fuel pump relay. If it works, should be a cheap fix. If dealer's price is outrageous, try Napa or even a used one.

WHERE IS THE FUEL PUMP DRIVER MODULE ON A 1997 LINCOLN TOWN CAR LOCATED--- NOT THE FUEL PUMP RELAY


No driver module shown on the wiring diagram for 89-98 models.
There is an EEC relay that powers the fuel pump relay. The fuel pump relay is grounded by the PCM. The voltage goes from the fuel pump relay thru the inertia switch and on to the pump.

My Lincoln town car wont start. It was running fine when I parked it last night. Engine turns over ok but wont start.


I would start looking at the little things first, like fuses and relays. If their ok, then I would check to see if the fuel pump is kicking on. It ususaly will make a humming sound, for a second or two, then it cuts off.

This is usually how it happens with Electric Fuel pumps. They either work or they don't. When you turn the ignition to on you should hear the pump engage and pressure up. If you don't most likely your pump is faulty. You mentioned that it did this after a freeze. It is possible that you have a frozen fuel line, Supply or return, will also cause this problem. The best you could do is move the vehicle into a garage and warm it up above freezing to allow the lines to thaw. A lot of time we get moisture build up in a tank without even knowing it. Cold fuel is supplied to the motor through the pump but the return line returns warm fuel and in a cold environment this will or can cause condensation to form in the tank and lines. Also bad fuel from a station will cause this issue. It doesn't take much with all the additives they put in fuel today. They sell fuel additive that will remove this moisture if that is the problem. try warming the vehicle up and thawing the lines. If this proves to be the issue you'll need to drop and drain the tank and lines to clear the problem or try a fuel additive to remove the moisture.
